"For I know the thoughts I that think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."
Jeremiah was writing to the captives of Babylon. Once again God was telling his people he was thinking about them & he had a plan.
THINK ON THIS....
I have always known who orders my steps but for some reason this year, 2018, my slogan or motto is "God's got a plan". Truthfully, he has always had a plan for each of our lives, which includes #salvation & fellowship with Him.
Circumstances change & trials arise for each of us. No one lives & leaves unscathed by grief, illness, financial concerns, etc. We will all face hardships of one kind or another. We will all feel persecuted over something. We will all feel like failures at some point. We will all feel like we are barely hanging on & loosing our grasp at some point or points in this life. The good news is...God is thinking about us.
Whether we are in times of joy or tribulation God has us on his mind. He has a plan to get us out of our troubles. A plan to get us back on the right path if we stepped wrong & have wandered & gotten lost. He has thoughts & plans for the sinner, the backslider & the saint alike. The difference comes when we choose to listen & follow.
No matter what you are going through, take comfort in knowing #God has a plan for your life. He loves you. He knows you personally. You are not just a number in God's universe. You are his child. He knows you by name. He knows your likes, your dislikes, your habits, everything there is to know about you he knows. In fact, he knows you better than you know yourself.
