Hope that everything will work out.
Trust that this journey ends in my heavenly home.
A future that has a lot of success and joy in it.
We love to quote Jeremiah 29 because God promises that his plans are to give us prosperity, hope and a future.
God’s prosperity is not about money, although money can be a part of it. God’s prosperity includes things like peace and purpose and love – the things money can’t buy.
When I call on God and pray to him, he will listen and answer, fulfilling his plans to prosper me. When I seek him with all my heart, I will find him and he will give me hope and a future.
If I miss the ‘how’ of his promise, I’m going to miss the whole thing.
God is clearly telling me that I have a part in making this promise come true.
When I’m diligent in going to him, praying and seeking him with all my heart, I can be confident that his plans for me are going to happen.
That’s my part.
You have got a part, too, if you want this promise to be true in your life.
Let’s not stop at the first sentence and miss what God has planned for us. The second sentence is the key.
Thank you for your promise, Abba Father.
