“I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear me forever, for their own good and the good of their children after them” (v39). Despite the evils of Israel and Judah (v30-35), God still desired to give them “one heart and one way,” rather than destroy them. God directed Jeremiah to buy property in Judah and keep the deed safe (v14-15), symbolizing that He would be faithful to them beyond their exile and was working to give them a future.
“I will rejoice in doing them good” (v41). In the middle of trouble, God is at work. His Spirit calls us to “one heart and one way” so that we and our children can enjoy peace.
