Exilic (Jeremiah 29:1-14)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “exilic.”  God’s people have always had a problem following his decrees, which would eventually lead to a need for course correction.  There were a couple of main exiles in the Bible; the first was the Assyrian.  Following that was another one known as the Babylonian Exile that lasted for about seventy years or so.  The peeps were in a position that caused them to stray from God and need his forgiveness for doing some stuff that was less than informed… also known as stupid.

This is what the Lord says: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my gracious promise to bring you back to this place.
~Jer 29:10

My question is: what kind of restoration do you need in your life?  The good thing for us is that God is gracious.  Even in the old days when his people totally messed up, he gave them another chance to be reconciled.  Whatever is going on in your life that you feel might take you away or further from God, don't think that is a spiritual relationship killer.  My prayer is that you search the corners of your heart and mind that need reconciliation with God.  What are a couple of items on your list of stuff that needs to be, done that you can tackle starting today?

Praying for you
