The Father’s Discipline

Re:Verse passage – Jeremiah 29:10–14 (day five)

When I read this passage, I see a loving Father God that truly cares for his children. Discipline was necessary to bring them back to Himself and to the Promised Land. What I love about this passage is that we see God’s Plans Never Change! We make mistakes and we sin against Him. We go astray and go our own way, but He remains true to His plan and promise. I’m reminded of the passage in the book of Hebrews: “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives” (Heb. 12:5b–6).

The Lord loves you dear child. He hears your prayers when you Call, Come, and Pray. You will find Him exactly where you left Him when you search for Him with all your heart.
Return to the place you first met Him and remember how He has brought you through this life’s journey. If you are experiencing His discipline, just remember that it is temporary and necessary to make you Holy and to bring you back to Him. If you are feeling distant and don’t know where God is, remember to call upon His name and seek Him like you never have before. He’s not far from any of us and in the Creator God we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:24-28). Now that’s learning what it means to be a part of the Imago Dei!
