“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.” Jeremiah 29:11
This is one of my all-time favorite bible verses. What a joy to know that God not only has plans for us but that they are good ones! So often we pray for God to do this or that because it’s what we want Him to do. We want our plans and our needs to be addressed. But those may not be His plans for us.
God sees the bigger picture. A picture we cannot even imagine right now. His plans will give us hope and a future. His plans are perfect for us. If your prayers seem to go unanswered, wait. Trust that God knows what you need and when you need it. His plan for you may be more amazing and fulfilling that anything you are asking for today. Wait on Him to reveal it to you!
