Jeremiah 51:46 ” Don’t lose heart or be afraid when rumors are heard in the land; one rumor comes this year, another the next, rumors of violence in the land and of ruler against ruler.”

Jerimiah’s message to Judah under Babylonian captivity was that of encouragement under duress. This verse is part of his oracle of judgment against the nation of Babylon, of which the Jewish people would spend 70 years in confinement. Jeremiah reassured them that their exile would not last forever, even though the journey through life may be painful and bitter. “Don’t fear, O Jacob My servant – you will again have peace and security and no one will make you afraid.” (Jeremiah 46:27) And this goes for us today, as international reports circulate concerning political & cultural unrest. We are not to be afraid…the Lord is still with us, we are not forgotten, and God is still in control.
