“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
Sometimes faith becomes weakened and we need to be reminded Jesus IS with us. He leads us to the Father, grows our faith and helps us learn to cope. We've lived through difficult days and situations we never thought we would face. But God has held us together by the power of His love.
He knows what we need to keep on going…God helps us persevere and find strength to handle doubt. He gives wisdom and opens our eyes to witness how He guides and provides. He makes room in our hearts for PEACE to prevail and helps us welcome HOPE.
We don’t know what the future holds, but we can rely on the Father to love us through every single moment. He will help us feel His presence as we seek Him with all of our hearts and remember who’s in charge of ALL things.
“HOPE is the confident expectation of what God has promised and its strength is in His faithfulness." Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16: 33
We must place this promise in our hearts and never forget LOVE bears all things. HOPE will provide stability as God sets the stage for our tomorrows. We must look for the good. If we remain faithful, we will find it and be blessed. God is HERE and HE loves us.
Dear God, Thank you for the blessing of EACH new day. As we stand in the presence of Your holiness, help us remember WHY we are not alone. Open our hearts for Jesus and help us learn to COPE in HOPE. We will praise YOU with gladness and find strength from Your mercy and grace. Bind us together with the love of Your faithfulness and grow our hearts to TRUST in You. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
