A destroyed temple meant a destroyed means of communication with God. Yet God still sees these people and promises to bless them. God says to the faithful remnant: Rebuild. I see you. I am with you. I will deliver you.
This Lent and always, may we also know that God sees us, hears us, and is our deliverer.
- When was a time you found it difficult to communicate with God? What did you do?
- What do you need God to deliver you from?
