"For I know the plans I have for you..."
In Jeremiah 29 God makes an amazing declaration:
"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."
Now that's what I call a declaration. These words are a powerful reminder to us that God has both created us and got plans for us. Isn't that amazing?
In a world of celebs and famous faces we can often feel as though our achievements and struggles don't really matter.
Who wants to read about our journey to work? Or our battles with the washing machine? Is there anyone out there who really understands?
Jeremiah reminds us that God is always there for us.
In the good times - and in the difficult times - God is there.
And God wants the very best for us.
