“But do not fear, O My servant Jacob, And do not be dismayed, O Israel! For behold, I will save you from afar, And your offspring from the land of their captivity; Jacob shall return, have rest and be at ease; No one shall make him afraid. Do not fear, O Jacob My servant,” says the Lord , “For I am with you; For I will make a complete end of all the nations To which I have driven you, But I will not make a complete end of you. I will rightly correct you, For I will not leave you wholly unpunished.”

Jeremiah 46:27-‬28 NKJV

He Corrects in Love

Without doubt, God’s love is steadfast and His mercy never ends. Those whom the LORD loves He has loved till the end. Because of this, His correction and punishments for every wrong doing of His children are always in love

 Though He Punishes

No matter how long the captivity has lasted, no matter the level of humiliation and the degree of desolation sin brings on a person, family, Local Church and the community of God’s people at large, there is always an end, a glorious end for that matter. Reason is that God’s ultimate goal for chastising His erring children is always redemptive and not destructive. 

His Love is greater Still

Whatever the intensity and the manifestations of darkness presently all over the world or around you, the truth is that the light will shine again and this thick darkness will soon disappear for the dawn of a glorious morning. Don’t be afraid or dismayed. God loves mankind still and He is in the midst of the world reconciling it to Himself in Christ Jesus. His moment of visitation and intervention is imminent and His help is sure to come. When the time comes, you will not only be transformed, He will fully restore and bless you abundantly. So, don’t give up yet, keep your faith and your hope alive for you will yet praise Him. Have a joyful and victorious week.


Good morning and do have a peaceful day.
