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
Often, we hear people say “keep the faith” in the midst of trials and change. In times of trouble, that’s good advice! God works hard to give us HOPE for the future, even when doubt creates worry in our lives.
When everything we’ve known has changed, it's easy to forget GOD is HERE. He guides and provides no matter what! He has a plan for our days. He helps us stay on course as we continue to faithfully TRUST.
The Bible says, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV reminds us God has a purpose for us.
As we try our best to handle the challenges we face; God helps us remember we’re not alone. Our loving Provider of HOPE blesses us with mercy and grace. We can count on Him to know what’s best for our lives. He helps us in so MANY ways…
We must remain faithful and pray. God will hear our prayers and provide peace in His presence. He will fill us with calm and help us step in FAITH. We can BELIEVE in His promise to guide us toward better days to come.
Because of God’s love for us, FAITH will see us through no matter what! He is God! HE IS LOVE! He has plans not to harm us, but to give us HOPE for the future. We must TRUST Him in EVERY situation.
Dear God, thank you for the power of Your presence. You are our constant source of strength; never changing and ever present in our lives. Forgive us when we forget to TRUST in You. As we step in faith, help us remember who's in charge of our days. Thank you for Your love for us. You provide STRENGTH when changes come. We are grateful! Thank you for guiding our hearts. We know we can count on You EVERY DAY of our lives. Amen
