Jeremiah 29:11-14

Our devotions this Easter season come from members of Faith Lutheran Church. Today’s writer is Avier Whitfield.

“For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you. When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart, I will let you find me, says the LORD, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, says the LORD, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.” Jeremiah 29:11-14

Just THINKING about this scripture brings great JOY and HOPE to my heart. God says “For SURELY I know the plans I have for you, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.

Knowing that God is in control of my well-being and future makes me fervor HIM even more. He knows my destiny and I’m never forgotten.

Sometimes we think God doesn’t hear our praise and prayer, but HE does, His word is our keepsake. He says by seeking Him with all of our heart, we will find him and he will restore all of our fortune. That’s GREAT news!

We don’t have to ever worry or be fearful of what’s to come because of God’s promised word. He loves us so much that he thought of our future before we were even thought about. I thank God for where I am today and where I will be tomorrow. I will keep his word close to my heart and seek him faithfully.

Let us pray: Lord God, Almighty, I come to you in thanksgiving, giving praise and honor to your holy name. Lord, I thank you for the plans you have for my life. Plans to prosper and plans of good health. Lord, help me to seek your word faithfully with all my heart. You reign with power and I worship you just because of who you are. Thank you God. In your blessed name I pray, Amen.
