“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)
What a comfort this verse offers us! It tells that the LORD has plans for us, and that His plans for us are good and filled with His blessing. Knowing that God has good plans for us gives us hope for the future.
God works out His plans with the best interests of His people in view. This involves our wholeness and spiritual well-being, rather than a guarantee of material prosperity. But even in the midst of difficulty, we can have hope that He will bring good out of our life’s situations.
“God made your life to matter. You are not an accident, you have a significant purpose.”
