Blinded

Read Jeremiah 29:1-14 - God tells the captives how to live in Babylon.


Steven Thompson lives in Iowa. On the interstate, Steven strained to see the road ahead. High beams lights from the pickup truck behind him shined through his car's back window and reflected off his windshield and mirrors. Steven was tempted to check the mirrors, but he knew the brilliance of the light could momentarily blind him. He focused intently on the pavement ahead until he exited the interstate.

Later he recognized a spiritual lesson from that experience. At times, Steven allows forgiveness, regrets, failures, lingering grief, and unfulfilled expectations to blind him to current and future opportunities.

In Jeremiah 29, God told the Jews about what lay ahead. Though they had been conquered and exiled, God still had an awesome plan for their future. Similarly, we need to look forward, staying focused on our present and future. God never abandons us, no matter what may linger from our past.


Prayer: Faithful God, help us release our past so that we can focus on your plans for us today, in Jesus' name. Amen.
