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
It's hard to make plans when the uncertainty of life challenges our way of thinking. But God wants us to remember who's in charge of our days. He helps us stay on course when we're called to move in a new direction. He prepares us to journey with Jesus and learn how it feels to 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 will steer us on the right path. He will arm us with strength. Our loving Provider will nurture our faith and keep us going...
Doubt will never allow us to BELIEVE good will come. We must remain faithful and pray. As we try and do our best, God will guide us. He will give us desire to grow and provide what we need to stay focused on what's to come. We will see glimpses of good as He prepares us to do amazing things.
We mustn’t worry if things don’t go as planned. God is working for the GOOD! He will give purpose to our days and fill us with His greatness. We will be ready when He asks us to GO. God will open doors of opportunity and make sure we're equipped to handle what will happen. We must never doubt His ability to know what is best.
God will lead us through our struggles. There will never be a day without the presence of His love. Peace will come from a grateful heart if we allow ourselves to feel His nudging and be ready to respond. He will help us remember who's in charge of our days.
We must BELIEVE in His promise to provide. When plans change, we mustn't worry! Because of God’s great love, FAITH will see us through. One day we will look back and understand the power of His plan. Until then, we must cope with HOPE and never forget who is working for the good.
Dear God, thank you for the power of Your love. You give us strength to keep on going, even when the future is unclear. Help us focus on the love of Your faithfulness as we bravely journey with Jesus. Fill our hearts with everything we need to find peace in Your presence. We will remain faithful when things don’t go as planned and remember who is working for the good! Thank you for knowing what’s best for our lives. We will TRUST in You and open our eyes to Your greatness. Thank You, Lord! You are worthy of praise, even in times of uncertainty. We love you so much and treasure Your love for us. Amen
