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. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen. Jeremiah 29:11-12
Relax, my friend, God’s in control. Let these words wash over you repeatedly, like soothing waves on a beautiful beach, assuring you of His endless love. You waste a lot of time and energy trying to figure out things before their time has come. Meanwhile, God is working to prepare the way before you. So be on the lookout for some wonderful surprises, circumstances that only He could have orchestrated.
Remember that you are God’s beloved child. He is on your side, and He wants what is best for you. Someone who is loved by a generous, powerful person can expect to receive an abundance of blessings. You are loved by the King of the universe, and He has wonderful plans for you. As you look ahead into the unknown future, relax in the knowledge of who you are, the one that God loves. Cling to His hand, and go forward with confidence. While you and the Lord walks together along the path of life,your trust in Him will fill your heart with joy and your mind with peace.
