“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Plans, we all have them. Plans for the day and week to the year onward. Well the Lord also has plans, and He has plans for us too. He wants us to be happy and to look forward to our future. To have hope.
But life isn’t always happy. In times that aren’t, having hope is what carries us through. That gives us the motivation to keep going. To move forward and realize that He has given us a future. That He wants to prosper us. That He doesn’t harm us. He is a God who heals, who cares, comforts, and gives us grace when we’re undeserving. He’s the God of HOPE!
So when He says that He has a plan for us, rest assured it is a good one. One that is though out with you specifically in mind, to bring joy to your heart and life that can only come from Him.
He is our hope and our future. Bring Him all your hopes and plans and ask Him if they are from Him or you. Because the ones from Him are life giving and the ones that are ours only bring unwanted stress.
