Jeremiah 29:11 is a constant reminder that we are always in God’s thoughts. His thoughts and plans for us are good and not evil, and will bring us to His expected end, an end that is in line with His perfect will for our life. Why is it that we sometimes question God’s love for us when we are faced with trials and the challenges of everyday life? Could it be that we believe His word and can have great faith when it pertains to others, yet we entertain fear, doubt and uncertainty as it pertains to ourselves? We are the apple of God’s eye and it pleases the Father to do great things for His children. His requirement is OBEDIENCE!
His plans for us were in place before we were formed in our mother’s womb. Psalms 139:14 states “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” My desire is that I would always give God thanks for my life and demonstrate my gratitude by taking better care of this vessel, He took such care to design and create. There is nothing about you or I that God is not aware of. He knows our thoughts, needs, desires and fears before we He loved us when we didn’t love Him or ourselves. WHAT KIND OF GOD IS THIS? A GOOD GOD, A KIND, LOVING HEAVENLY FATHER! Trust God, study His word and see just how much He loves you and “Live in the abundance of HIS PROMISES.”
