Plans to prosper...hope...future

by Debi Baker

"11 '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

This verse means so much to me.  It is the verse God gave me 3 years ago when my church was showed me that God has plans for us.  His plans don't include harm for us but they are plans that will give us a hope and with that hope comes a future!  He plans to prosper us.  That doesn't mean we will 'get rich' with money.  It means that we will do well when we follow His plans.  I like to think it means that He will find favor in me because I am obedient and trusting of Him.

This verse tells me that God cares.  He cares enough to have plans for my future!  Even when, in my eyes, the future looks bleak, God has plans for me.  All we have to do is look to Him, trust Him and know that He has a future for us.  That future...we have the freedom to ignore it or change it according to our own will...but if will let go and let God...our future is in His hands!!

What better hands could our future be in but the ones that created us in the first place!!!  I challenge you today...when you are feeling like you just don't have any you are you can't go this verse again...and again...and again...until you begin to believe that God cares for you...enough to have His plans for you.  Then when you begin to believe it ask Him to show you the steps you need to take to allow His plans to begin to take shape.  Before you know it you will be in His perfectly planned will!!

Have a blessed day!
