This week, we will memorize the first half of one of my favorite passages in the Bible.
This promise was written by Jeremiah to a nation who was facing punishment and exile into a foreign land. God was tired of their lack of faith and frustrated with their idolatry and worship of other gods.
Jeremiah’s message was one of gloom and destruction. But there are glimpses in these chapters of God’s love, regardless of what his people had done (or not done…).
The same is true for us. God has a plan. And while we may not see the whole picture, he does. He has a design, one in which he pours out blessings into our lives. Those blessing may take material form; and they may not. But they are there nonetheless.
The result? We will continue to call upon him; and he will continue to hear us.
That’s pretty incredible, if you ask me.
Do you have trouble resting assured of God’s plans for you? What do you do to combat this? You can leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
