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. Jeremiah 29:11

God leads us from the past and prepares us for the future. He reminds us why it’s okay to STOP looking back. He covers us in strength for TODAY and reminds us to totally trust in what He will provide.

Circumstances form powerful opportunities for God to transform us. They help us seek His guidance and become aware of how He will handle our days. They shape our thoughts and ready us to welcome Jesus. And, they teach us what it means to be faithful.

When we seek Him, we should pay attention to what’s happening in our lives. In order to do something for His glory, we must open our hearts to recognize we have been prepared for His greatness and we must learn to trust. God will provide the way for us to receive Him. He will remind us how it feels to be grateful, while we’re held in the presence of His peace.

God will make a way in the wilderness and bring water to the dryness of our souls. He will show us how to remove what needs to be left behind. And, He will renew our hearts. He will help us remain faithful, if we stop looking back and stay focused on Him. And, He will provide strength when we need to find HOPE in the blessings of TODAY!

Dear God, Your precious presence prepares us to TRUST. Help us stop looking back, so we can fix our eyes on YOU and focus on the “here and now.” Help us experience the power of Your greatness, so we will be renewed. And show us how to rid ourselves of doubt. You are mighty, holy and true. Thank you for having a plan for our days. Amen
