11-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. 12-Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13-You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Jeremiah 29:11-13 was written specifically for the people of Israel that were in exile but the promises GOD made to them are also made to us. GOD longs for us to seek Him with all of our hearts and to diligently seek His presence. It is in that secret place with GOD that we too will find Him. And it is in that secret place that GOD’s plans can unfold in our lives. —GOD has a plan for you! Are you facing a difficult situation? -All of us can take comfort from Jeremiah 29:11 knowing GOD is with us in the middle of our difficulty. We are not promised immediate change of our situation but we can know GOD’s peace in it as we trust Him to work in it. The LORD can restore all that we have lost. I am amazed at the changes that GOD has brought about in my life. Some of the things that I prayed for, waited for, and hoped for, have not always happened as I expected them to. But hindsight is a great thing and I am so blessed that GOD did not answer my prayers in the way I thought He should!
Let me encourage you today to seek the LORD. He promised that we will find Him: His will, His purpose, and His promise to deliver what’s best for us. He did not withhold His Son, JESUS from us! He gave us His best gift ever! The Bible says that all things are possible in CHRIST.
Do you believe this?
Thank You FATHER for Your plans for my life. Thank You that You are with me in all my situations. Forgive me for when I don't trust You to work in my life. Help me to hear Your voice directing me and help me to choose Your plan and path for my life. Fill me with a passion to seek You diligently and to have excitement as I read Your Word and apply it to my life. In JESUS’ wonderful Name I pray, Amen.
Praying For You,
Pastor Wally & Sister Mattie
