Jeremiah, in a land without God

The Book of Jeremiah is written about captivity in Babylon, & how false prophets were attacking the people with the wrong type of hope, false insecure hope. Jeremiah tells the people God’s true purpose here:

Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV84

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

When you seek after God he will distinguish the true hope from the lies Satan names as his hopes, because God only seeks to bless you in eternity more.
