his promise to his lamb

Jeremiah 50:17-20 (JDV)

Jeremiah 50:17 Israel is an isolated lamb, chased by lions. The first who devoured him was the king of Assyria; the last who crushed his bones was King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon.
Jeremiah 50:18 Therefore, this is what Yahveh of Armies, the God of Israel, says: I am about to punish the king of Babylon and his land just like I punished the king of Assyria.
Jeremiah 50:19 I will return Israel to his grazing land, and he will feed at Carmel and Bashan; he will be satisfied in the hill country of Ephraim and of Gilead.
Jeremiah 50:20 In those days and at that time – this is what Yahveh declares – one will search for Israel’s violation, but there will be none, and for Judah’s failures, but they will not be found, because I will forgive those I leave as a remainder.

his promise to his lamb

God’s promise to forgive Israel and lead the nation back to the promised land was fulfilled in history.

His promise to forgive us and to lead us into a new creation can be trusted. God does what he promises.

Lord. thank you for being faithful to those who call on your name. We trust in you for forgiveness today, and a permanent future in your new creation.
