At this point I awoke, and looked around, and my sleep was sweet to me. Jeremiah 31:25, TLV
Context. This passage is part of a prophetic night-vision God gives Jeremiah. A beautiful vision of hope for the believing and faithful remnant of Israel. So much of what will happen to Israel is and will be judgment. Jeremiah is called the “weeping prophet” as the bearer of such sad tidings.
So, when the LORD revealed hope and an amazing future for those believing remnant, I imagine the beleaguered prophet was grateful and had peace and respite.
Watch for those sweet moments
There has been a lot of weeping moments for us these days, hasn’t there. In our families. Society. Trends. Unrest. But, we know as the “believing remnant” there is a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11). That means, we should always look for those “sweet moments” from the LORD. Look around at what is good and dwell on these things.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable—if there is any virtue and if there is anything worthy of praise—dwell on these things. Philippians 4:8, TLV
Please pray Psalm 122.
