I Can Trust His Sovereign Plan

Reading Jeremiah 24 recently, I was struck with the absolute sovereignty of God and how I canIMG_1594 trust Him in my prayer life. Just like this early morning sunrise, to me a picture of peace, I can be at peace resting in His plan for me and for my family. In Jeremiah 24, God tells the prophet that the Israelites taken captive into Babylon will experience His blessing. Those who remain behind in Jerusalem will be like “bad figs,” “a reproach, a byword, a taunt. . . .” (Jer. 24:9; ESV). I can imagine me praying, “Lord, keep my family from being taken captive.” Yet, it is about those who were taken captive that God said, “I will give them a heart to know that I am the LORD, and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart” (Jer. 24:7; ESV). I do not always understand how God works, but I can trust Him to be doing His best in my life and the lives of my family.
