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 move in a different 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 make the path straight. He will arm us with strength. Our loving Provider will nurture faith and help us travel in PEACE.
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 give us desire to grow and provide what we need to stay focused. We will see glimpses of good as He prepares us to do amazing things in our travels together.
God IS working for the GOOD! He will give purpose to our lives and fill us with His greatness. We must 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 next. We must never doubt His ability to orchestrate our lives.
There will never be a day without the presence of His love. Gratitude will help us respond to God's nudging. He will remind us who's in charge of our days and provide STRENGTH to persevere. We must BELIEVE in His promises.
When life takes us in a different direction, we must boldly find courage and stop being afraid. One day we will look back and understand the power of His plan. Until then, we must cope with HOPE and never forget God already knows where we will arrive. He will arm us with everything we need to remember He will prosper us with timely rewards.
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 and remember who is working for the good! Thank you for knowing what’s best for our days. We will TRUST in You and open our eyes to Your greatness. Thank You, Lord! You are worthy of praise, even in times of transition. We love you so much and treasure Your love for us. Amen
