From Pastor Toensing

My bible reading recently has taken me through the book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah was a prophet sent by the Lord to proclaim God’s Word. His ministry covered the beginning portions of the Exile when some of the people had been taken captive to Babylon. In chapter 29 we find Jeremiah writing a letter to the exiles. It is included in the writings that record his works. And, in the name of the Lord, Jeremiah gives them this advice in Jeremiah 29:7: “But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.”

Even though they were in exile, captive, away from home, lost, etc., still, the Lord, full of mercy, sought their wellbeing. The Lord still wanted them to prosper and do well. The Lord still wanted them to receive His blessings— even while captive in a foreign land. (continued..)
