2 Chronicles 36:21–The land enjoyed its Sabbath rests; all the time of its desolation it rested, until the seventy years were completed in fulfillment of the word of the Lord spoken by Jeremiah.
The disobedience of the people of Israel even affected the land they were on. Because they were disobedient to God, they had not taken care of the land the way God had told them to. As a result, when the people were overthrown and deported, it allowed the land to be able to rest as God had intended. God cares for all of His creation and He has asked us to care for it as well. Are we being obedient to Him in how we treat all of His creation?
Father, You have made such a wonderful creation for us to enjoy. Help me to care about all Your creation as much as You do.
