For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Does God have a plan for your life?
When I was a teenager, I came across a little gospel track called the Four Spiritual Laws. That track has been used around the world to bring thousands of people to faith in Christ. It’s a short little booklet that begins with, “God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.”
We all know that God loves us, the most famous verse in the Bible, John 3:16 tells us so. But a plan for your life? Does God have a specific plan for your life?
The prophet Jeremiah wrote to the Children of God during a difficult time in their history. He wrote to a people that were living in another country in exile.
The prophet reminded them, that even though things were not as they wished they could be, God had not forgotten about them, He had a plan for their life, and that plan was good.
Just as a father wants the very best for his children, your Heavenly Father wants the best for you.
God’s plan for your life doesn’t always include becoming a missionary, preacher, or giving your life for the Gospel. Sometimes His plan is as simple as walking in fellowship with Him, being an example of the love of Jesus to others, and helping those around you any way you can.
Have you ever stopped to consider that God has a plan for your life? When you think of God’s plan for you, do you see it as good?
Just because we can’t see how things are going to work out, doesn’t mean God isn’t working His plan. You see your life day-by-day, but God sees your beginning and end. He has a plan for you, and that plan is good.
When things aren’t going the way you hope, it’s easy to get discouraged and feel like God has forgotten you. Knowing that God has a plan for you, and that plan is good, gives you hope for the future and faith that He is working that plan for your benefit.
Let’s look at that promise again.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. – Jeremiah 29:11
Make this Confession.
God has a plan for my life.
His plan is for my good.
He is giving me a future.
I have hope as I trust in His plan.
