I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope.
-Jeremiah 29:11 (GWT)
Thoughts on Today’s Verse
Jeremiah had warned that Israel’s idol worship, which had replaced their devotion to the true and living God, demanded the destruction of all they held dear and everything in which they placed their trust. BUT GOD Who is loving and gracious, long-suffering and faithful, pronounced His bitter rod of severe chastening was also His blossoming staff of sweet comfort and peace, grace and mercy, love and hope and joy. This glorious verse of comfort sparkles with reassuring radiance, that our eternal and spiritual welfare, as well as our temporal and physical needs, rests in the bosom of our gracious God – Who desires and plans nothing but good as our portion. He knows that only as we sever our reliance on the world’s destructive securities and rest our trust entirely on Christ Jesus our Lord, will we break free of the yoke of this world’s slavery. Whatever YOU are going through today, be assured that His thoughts toward you are only good continually.
Thank You Lord, for the good plans you have purposed for me. Enlarge my vision of You and enable me to trust in You through all the circumstances of my life, knowing that Your thoughts towards me are only good continually. In Jesus name, AMEN
