Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
As Judah headed into exile, conquered by a savage pagan people, God offered them hope.
Their prosperity was not an end, though their path through hardship had begun.
When God leads you up a rocky path, your hope and future remain secure in Him.
Faithful trust is all He asks of you.
