Jeremiah 29:11-13 - Day 11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.”
We’ve all had days that fall apart at the seams. At those times, it is tempting to wonder where God is, and why he’s not stitching the seams back together. This passage is perfect for times like those.
God is the God of unity, not the God of disorder. It is important to have faith in God’s plans for us, because we will all have days when God’s promises for good plans will not look like what we see in front of us.
God’s only challenge here is to seek Him, and to seek Him with all our heart. If we do that, He says we will find Him.
God wants good things for you. Do you see yourself in the way God sees you? If so, what does that look like? If not, how is it affecting the way you’re living?
Write this verse down on an index card. Keep it with you. The next day you have that seems headed for “disaster,” take the card out and read it. Is your faith in God’s promise stronger than what you see in front of you?
