The Plan of God in the Suffering We Experience

God promises to give His people “a future and a hope” in Jeremiah 29:11, and many Christians assume that this rules out the possibility of suffering in their lives. However, we need to consider this promise in its wider, biblical context. In this message from Jeremiah 29:11–13, David Platt helps us think through God’s promise to Jeremiah in the context of God’s overarching plan of redemption through Jesus Christ. Even in the midst of pain and suffering, God’s people can be confident that He will sustain them and that His saving promises will be fulfilled. Those who are in Christ truly have a future and an eternal hope.
