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. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," Jeremiah 29:11-14 NIV
God plans every moment of our lives and longs for us to find purpose in what He provides. He grows us in the goodness of His grace and reminds us to love Him with all of our hearts. While we are held in His presence, He grows our faith as we learn to TRUST in Him.
Sometimes, we forget God is closer than we think. When we call on Him, He hears us! “Prayer is where we get to know God personally.” When we open our hearts to receive, He gifts us with His presence. He rewards us in the timing of His will and helps us notice glimpses of good that He provides.
God wants us to have an abundant life. He places HOPE in our hearts. He helps us receive His STRENGTH and nourishes our desire to keep on going. He reminds us we are stronger than we think.
God will bless us. If we seek Him with all of our hearts, we will find purpose in ALL He provides. Aren’t we lucky to have a Father who prepares us for His greatness? When we walk in His love, we will be readied to welcome what’s to come and never stop looking for the GOOD.
God will help us embrace the love of a grateful heart. We must TRUST Him with our future and stop trying to handle everything on our own. He is GOD! He knows what we need to be blessed.
Dear God, thank you for helping us TRUST in You. Help us recognize we ARE capable of doing great things. Hear our prayers of praise when we sit in the worry of wonder and become fearful of what will happen next. Open our eyes to see gifts of Your GOOD and notice what needs to be seen. Thank you for handling our days and giving us HOPE for the future. You know what we need and we are SO grateful. Amen
