Jeremiah 30:19 Out of them shall come songs of thanksgiving, and the voices of those who celebrate. I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will make them honored, and they shall not be small.
The 'them' is the tents of Jacob - God's ancient and chosen people, the people with whom He is still maintaining covenant. From God's people will come singing and the voice of celebration. Why? Because they will be celebrating; because God will restore them to their place and rebuild their cities.
When God rebuilds, He also multiplies and blesses. He gives all that is needed for growth and honour. He is the source of all honour and glory; they belong to Him and He distributes them as He sees fit.
If we seek growth, God's favour and blessing, then we need to return to God, to His ways, to His place and wait upon Him. Then we too will find ourselves singing, for we will be celebrating what He has done for and with us!
