“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 NIV
Sometimes we have trouble staying on course. We forget how it feels to step in confidence. We lose sight of where we’re going and wonder where God wants us to arrive. But He knows how to open our eyes. He helps us recognize when we’re headed in the right direction and gives clarity as we learn to TOTALLY TRUST.
God plans our steps. He hears our prayers and helps us examine our hearts. He provides desire to focus on what’s to come. He lifts us where we see His many blessings and find courage to surrender doubt. He helps us become aware of what’s holding us back from receiving timely rewards.
We were created to love Him with all of our hearts and receive an abundance of joy. God longs for us to serve Him with gladness and welcome PEACE that passes all understanding. Even in wonder, HE is working for the good. HE is the ONE who knows how to ready us to rise and faithfully follow Jesus.
It will take courage to keep on going. We will become confused and obstacles will stand in the way. But God will guide and provide in ways we never could have imagined. He will help us persevere and give us HOPE to believe He knows what’s best for our lives.
God will help us remember we don’t have to figure out everything on our own. If we put our faith in the One who’s already planned our steps; the journey will be so much easier, even if there are bumps in the road.
You’re blessed when you stay on course, walking steadily on the road revealed by GOD. You’re blessed when you follow His directions, doing your best to find Him. Psalm 119: 1&2 MSG
Dear God, thank you for humbling our hearts and opening our eyes in truth. Forgive us when we forget who plans our days. Help us find STRENGTH to persevere when we stand at a crossroad. We will put our HOPE in YOU as we step ahead in faith. Thank you for ALL You provide. We will love YOU all of our days and find PEACE as we learn to faithfully TRUST. Thank you for letting us travel together. Thank you for knowing what's best for our lives. Amen
