Read Jeremiah 31:7-9
31:7 For thus says the LORD: Sing aloud with gladness for Jacob, and raise shouts for the chief of the nations; proclaim, give praise, and say, "Save, O LORD, your people, the remnant of Israel."
31:8 See, I am going to bring them from the land of the north, and gather them from the farthest parts of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, those with child and those in labor, together; a great company, they shall return here.
31:9 With weeping they shall come, and with consolations I will lead them back, I will let them walk by brooks of water, in a straight path in which they shall not stumble; for I have become a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.
This prophecy is a prophecy of restoration. Looking forward to the return of Israel from exile. A prophecy fulfilled as people returned from commencing with Cyrus' decree in 538BC that allowed for the rebuilding of the temple. This prophecy is a reminder to those experiencing exile that God is always working on a 'homecoming'.
In times of great anxiety it is difficult to remember to trust in you O God. But you were faithful to your promises to Jeremiah - so I trust you in your promises to me.
