God’s plans for us, are not what we envision it to be. You might envision God’s plan for you to be prosperous in a material sense, with no problems, and easy-going. We often reject the idea that sometimes God’s plan involves hardships, lost and sometimes it involves suffering. See I’m not sure where you are in your walk with God. I’m not sure because of life’s circumstances if you have rejected God or maybe even curse him in your heart.
In Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
You know, as we live life and go through many fiery trials and tribulations it can be hard to believe that God, the God that is all-loving, the God that created us, the God that is all-powerful, will allow sometimes crippling events to happen to us. Yet in His words, He tells us that he has a plan for us, and that plan is for our good.
As time goes on because evil is intensifying here on earth because lawlessness is growing rampant, the love of many is growing cold. So naturally, peoplet blame God. God is not the originator of evil. God is love! His very nature is love! And he has a plan for you through it all. People might have hurt you, the devil might have done things to you through other people to destroy you, but God wants to use that for your good and for his glory because he has a future and hope for us.
And no matter what you have been through, the mistakes we have done, the sins we have committed. Things people have done to us. We can become so paralyzed by the things we go through and slip into a life of darkness. Yet God says I have a plan, a future, and hope for you. Will you trust me?
God sent his son Jesus Christ into the world, at the right moment so that through Him the world might be saved. Because in Him lies our future and hope.
You do not have to live in darkness, in confusion, or in hopelessness or as a victim any longer. Through Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection, there is victory. There is power! Put your trust in Jesus Christ. Trust in God’s counsel for your life. Be sick and tired of the life you have lived up until now. And extend your hands to that blessed hope and peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Revelation 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
Romans 15:4For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope
