Did you know that one of the most popular verses in the Bible is also one of the most misapplied verses? In this short teaching video from Proverbs 31 Ministries, Dr. Joel Muddamalle breaks down Jeremiah 29:11, identifying both its historical context and its true meaning.

If you’ve personally felt like the suffering you've endured is tied to something you did wrong or didn’t do right, God isn't asking you to bear that burden any longer. Dig deeper into this topic by downloading "Consider This: Why do bad things happen to God’s people?" for free.
Consider This: Why do bad things happen to God's people? 
Living in the peace we want doesn’t come from the absence of pain and chaos but by knowing Jesus is with us in those things. If you’re longing for this kind of soul-settled assurance, join Dr. Joel Muddamalle in the pages of his new book, The Hidden Peace: Finding True Security, Strength, and Confidence Through Humility.

Yeah, it’s a thing. Pre-order his book The Hidden Peace: Finding the Security, Strength, and Confidence Through Humilithere.
