In a letter that Jeremiah was writing to the captives, he was writing all that the Lord commanded him to write. In that letter, the Lord told the captives that though you are in captivity, the Lord has not forgotten you. They might not be able to do all their religious duties, but He can still hear their prayers. Their prayer and God’s answer were part of their future and hope.
This is great news because it reminds me that no matter where I am, God will listen to me. He is not a God that hides from us or is off at a distance. If we seek Him, we will find Him. It could be that today maybe you feel that God is not listening to you. May this be a reminder that when we call upon the name of the Lord, He will hear you and answer your prayers giving you a future and a hope.
