Treasure Verse Tuesday - Jeremiah 24:6-7

"My eyes will watch over them for their good, and I will bring them back to this land. I will build them up and not tear them down; I will plant them and not uproot them. I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the LORD. They will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with all their heart." Jeremiah 24:6-7

One morning last week as I was having my quiet time at Camp of The Woods, as I read through a few chapters of Jeremiah, this was one of several verses that stopped me in my tracks. It leaped off the page and into my heart. His love ministered to my heart. I read it several times and lifted it up to Him as a prayer for me and my family, and for others we love as well. I wrote it in my Family Prayer Journal as a prayer lifted up to Him for each of us in our family. I love His precious promises to His people in this scripture. Soak it in.

Oh I love the words of the LORD in Jeremiah!

I'm teaching through it with the children and every day find myself falling more in love with Him!

How faithful is our GOD! Who never stops coming after us and wanting us to allow Him to supply for all of our needs!

Thank You LORD for Sharon and her family! May they draw ever closer to You each day of their lives!

Love you,
Jill
