Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) - "'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.'"
Over the last seven days we have mused over the truth of God and His plan. We considered His plan for man, marriage, sin, family, church, rulers, the future, and today - you.
No one is outside of God's plan. Everyone is a component of that plan. How we chose to respond to that plan may appear to be arbitrary, however, God who knows all things from the beginning knows what we will do.
In this verse God let's us know that if we will commit and follow His plan for our lives, we will prosper, have hope, and a future. If we don't - well we will have the opposite. The problem is - we try to dictate what prosperity is, what the hope should be, and how our future will look. Friend - we don't honestly get that choice. God knows what our particular prosperity will be, He knows what hope we have, and He knows our future.
Today - trust Him. Trust His plan. As one writer has said - "When we can't see His Hand, trust His Heart."
