“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
We’re all encouraged by a leader who stirs us to move ahead, someone who believes we can do the task he has given and who will be with us all the way. God is that kind of leader. He knows the future, and his plans for us are good and full of hope. As long as God, who knows the future, provides our agenda and goes with us as we fulfill his mission, we can have boundless hope. This does not mean that we will be spared pain, suffering, or hardship, but that God will see us through to a glorious conclusion.
I spend a lot of time in the Word. I enjoy it immensely. Many days I wonder how I could ever have not had a relationship with Jesus.
A couple of days ago I spoke about grace. His grace saves us. What comes to mind immediately, we all seek guidance in our lives. The smartest businessmen have a board of directors to consult. When faced with a challenge we seek advice from our peers. We consult all sort of people. What we should be doing is relying on God. It’s through God’s grace that we are in the position we are.
Read the Scripture again: “For I know the plans I have for you.” – “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
I ask you why we would worry about anything? Just trust in God, as He provides and looks after the Birds, he will look after you.
Further to looking after you, do we know what the plan is for our lives? With all the planning in the world, there are still grey areas. We will never know everything. I was speaking to a friend the other day and said that one has to embrace every opportunity to learn, you never know when you are going to need it. Why, because we don’t know the plan for you.
Critical though we have to empower and equip ourselves daily to fulfill that task when it arrives. Learn learn daily to become wise. Ready yourself for future opportunity. It applies as much at home as at work.
When last have you taken the time to improve your marriage? No matter how good or bad.
” Lord I thank you for Your plan, no matter what it is. Guide me in your way. In Jesus name. Amen.”
