It’s hard to find time in your busy schedule to spend time with the Lord, but it is so very crucial to our spiritual well-being that we make this time. My challenge to you (and to myself) is that each Saturday morning we come together and study a verse from the Bible. Let’s talk about what it means to us and how we can apply it in our daily lives. So look for a new verse every Saturday morning, grab a cup of coffee and your prayer journal, and let’s grow together in the Lord!
Jeremiah 29:11: “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.”
Are you going through a tough time in your life right now? Maybe it seems like nothing is going right or maybe you feel that God has forgotten about you. Let this verse reassure you: He hasn’t and He won’t. He loves you very much and has plans for your future, even if you can’t see it right now.
The Lord’s plans often look different from ours but are always, always better.
When thinking about this verse, keep in mind that the prosperity of which He speaks may not mean the typical prosperity of this world but spiritual prosperity that is born from trials and a deep, abiding relationship with Christ.
Pray with me:
Lord, thank you for the privilege of reading Your Word today. Please help me to not just read it but to take it deep into my heart and apply it to my life. Give me wisdom and discernment to follow Your plan. Guide my steps, lead me as I walk through difficult times. Thank You for Your plans, as I know they are better than mine. I may still feel some uncertainty at times but, today, I choose to trust You. I love you, Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
Thank you for sharing this verse with me, my sweet sisters in Christ. Please let me know in the comments how this verse impacts you and your life! I’m looking forward to reading what you have to say!
