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 hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," Jeremiah 29:11-14a NIV

God plans the moments of our lives. He longs for us to find purpose in what He provides. He grows us in the goodness of grace and helps us remember to seek Him with all of our hearts. While we are held in the promise of His presence, He allows faith to flourish. He teaches to TRUST He will handle ALL things. 

Sometimes, we forget God is closer than we think. When we call on Him in prayer, He hears us! “Prayer is where we get to know God personally.” When we open our hearts to receive His power of love, He gives reason to recognize He is near. And, when we humbly make our requests known, He answers our prayers in the timing of His will. We must never doubt His ability to prepare us for the plans He has for our days.

God wants us to have an abundant life. He doesn’t want us to worry about what’s to come. He places HOPE in the heart of our need and finds the way to make us stronger. He gives us reason to keep on going and shows us how to persevere, He readies us to achieve great things.

God will bless us. But, we must seek Him with all of our hearts, believe in His ability to take care of our needs and be ready to find purpose in what He will provide. Aren’t we lucky to have a Father who prepares us for His greatness? We must obey His guiding and NEVER be afraid to welcome the blessing of a grateful heart. 

Dear God, Thank you for this day of opportunity to trust in You. Help us recognize we ARE capable of doing great things. We will offer a prayer of praise, as we are used for Your glory. And, we will NEVER forget who is handling ALL things. Amen
