Jeremiah 29:11-13 (The Message) “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out – plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. When you call on Me, when you come and pray to Me, I’ll listen. When you come looking for Me, you’ll find Me. Yes, when you get serious about finding Me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed. God’s decree.”
We are 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. This kind of leader believes in us and makes us believe in ourselves. This kind of leader motivates us to follow him.
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 we will be spared pain, suffering or hardship, but rather that God will see us through to a glorious conclusion. You see, God is FOR us!
God did not forget His people, even though they were captive in Babylon. He planned to give them a new beginning with a new purpose – to turn them into new people.
In times of deep trouble, it may seem that God has forgotten you. But God may be preparing you, as He did the people of Judah, for a new beginning with Him at the center.
According to God's wise plan His people were to have hope and a future, so they could call upon Him in confidence. Though we may find ourselves in a difficult place and time, we should not despair for we have God's presence, the privilege of prayer, and God's grace.
God can be sought and found when we seek Him urgently and wholeheartedly. Neither strange lands, sorrows, frustrations nor physical problems can break our communion with Him!
Remember...God is FOR you!
Romans 8:31 “...if God be for us, who can be against us?”
Be encouraged that God is FOR you!
Until next time...enjoy the journey!
