An incredible promise.
But you, my servant Jacob, do not be afraid, and do not be discouraged, Israel, for without fail I will save you from far away, and your descendants from the land of their captivity! Jacob will return and have calm and quiet with no one to frighten him. Jeremiah 46:27
This is an incredibly powerful promise for someone who was taken captive in a foreign land. We sometimes feel just like the Israelites, lost and powerless, and we long for peace. This is what God ultimately intended- to bring them back to their land and to give them rest. They must’ve been so worn, working as slaves in an unfamiliar land. In these desperate circumstances, God was promising that He will save them without fail. When everything else fails, God remains. As we trust in Him, we will experience calm and quiet and nothing will make us fear.
