"I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth " Exodus: 34:10 (KJV)
Compassionate God

This is what the Lord says: "I will restore the fortunes of Jacob’s tents and have compassion on his dwellings. The city will be rebuilt on her ruins and the palace will stand in its proper place" – Jeremiah 30:18

Our God is a compassionate God. He has greater plans for you. He says: "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to give you hope and a future" – Jeremiah 29:11. He wants to give you a better future and see that you lead a full life here in this earth and in eternity. If it is so, then why are the people of God stricken with fear and terror? Many children of God lead a fear-filled life without hope. Why? It is because of their sins and due to the obstinate heart which refuses to obey the word of God when it comes to them through the servant of God.

The Lord warned Israel and Judah through all his prophets and seer: "Turn from your evil ways. Observe my commands and decrees, in accordance with the entire Law that I commanded your fathers to obey and that I delivered to you through my servants the prophets" – II Kings 17:13

When the Lord speaks to them they think it is the voice of man and they do not listen to them. They have their own gods – money, job, family, television, etc. They have no time for God.

Each national group made its own gods (II Kings 17:29).

Although God was warning them repeatedly, they hardened their hearts and did not worship him in reverence. Hence, the Lord Almighty is angry with them. They have no peace of mind. Though they are children of God yet do not have affection towards each other within the family. They have strange diseases. Even the best of the medicine is unable to cure them. All the time they lament of their woes yet could not find solace in anything they do.

They made their hears as hard as flint and would not listen to the law or to the words that the Lord Almighty had sent by his Spirit through the earlier prophets. So the Lord Almighty was very angry – Zechariah 7:12

Your wound is incurable, your injury beyond healing – Jeremiah 30:12

Whatever they do becomes a curse, it ends in waste of money and effort. Poverty is gradually gripping them like the dusk. Business is crippled, it is moving towards bankruptcy.

If you are the kind of person explained in the previous paragraphs, do not loose heart. Our God is a compassionate God. He says return to me and I shall restore your health and wealth, the peace which you lost.

But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds - Jeremiah 30:17

Your house will be rebuilt. You will once again find the peace in the family, the bond among the family members will be strengthened (Jeremiah 30:18).

All you have to do is:

Delight in the law of the Lord. Meditate on them day and night. Not only that Bible says, blessed is the man who is a doer of the word than just a hearer. You should abide in Him and His words in you (John 15:7) then whatever you do shall prosper (Psalms 1:2,3).

May the Lord bless you and restore you back into His fold.
