“I will rejoice over them to do them good and will faithfully plant them in this land with all My heart and with all My soul” (Jeremiah 32:41).

Fourteen times in verses 36-44 the first-person personal pronoun, “I,” is used to describe the future activity of God in bringing about the restoration of his people. Nowhere is this more profoundly captured than in the idiom, “heart and soul.” While found elsewhere in scripture, this is the only occurrence of its use in association with God. It captures the totality of his being and speaks to his full commitment to seeing his promises fulfilled.
