“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 provides for our needs. He maps out our days and lays a trail for us to follow. He prepares us to move along, even when we don’t know where we’re going. He readies us to witness the offering of His amazing love.
Sometimes, we forget to trust. But, Christ nourishes our faith and helps us remember we are not alone. He helps us find peace in the love of our gratefulness and arms us with everything we need to find HOPE in the presence of His strength.
There is HOPE in the strength of the Savior! Jesus died in our place. He set the stage for good to come. We mustn’t doubt the depth of His holiness or question His ability to save. He will lead us to the Father. He will lift us to see glimpses of what’s ahead, if we allow ourselves to be held.
God will arm us with everything we need. He will provide HOPE for the future. We must surrender to Him and release the worry. He is so much bigger than our fear. It will never be too late to trust in God. His mercy will not fail us.
Dear God, Thank you for the promise of Your everlasting love. Help us remember You really do have plans for our days. We will trust in You and find strength in the promise of Your presence in our lives. And, we will find HOPE for the future, when we have learned to totally trust. Amen
