After a Spanking
Remember what it was like after a spanking? The hugs and reassurance of love? After 70 years of exile, Judah needed to hear that God still loved her. “ ‘For I know what I have planned for you,’ says the LORD. ‘I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I have plans to give you a future filled with hope. When you call out to me and come to me in prayer, I will hear your prayers. When you seek me in prayer and worship, you will find me available to you..,’ says the LORD.” (Jeremiah 29:11-14a) Once you have been disciplined, what will you do with the hope that is yours?
