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. Jeremiah 29:11
Even though Israel was at a dark time in there nation’s history, Gods message to them was, Hey everything is going to be alright, I still have a plan for you!
The same thing happens in our own lives, we get in a down season and we think it’s all over, but we need to remember Jesus is own the throne. The whole world rests on his shoulders, its not over till he says its over.
Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. Jeremiah 29:12
When we do have times of trouble, what is our reaction? Do we pray to God or just sulk in self-pity? God wants to hear from you, he wants a personal relationship with you thru the good times and the bad. When you call upon The Lord in your day of trouble he will deliver you.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
God also wants us to seek him, many times things happen in our lives that we don’t understand or don’t find fare. However instead of being bitter seek God for answers. Ask him to fill you with his Holy Spirit to give you wisdom, comfort, and strength.
I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.” Jeremiah 29:14
God is hoping that thru our trials we will find him and he will then be able to deliver us. See God will never leave us or forsake us, even when we feel left alone in the world he is there waiting for us to reach out to him in Jesus Name Amen
