Jeremiah 29:11New Living Translation (NLT)
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.
When I think of this scripture it reminds me of the safety of God. His love for me is unfailing. I often wonder what others believe in. Who do they go to when life gets overwhelmingly hard? Now don’t get me wrong, God loves everybody. He is no respecter of person but, if you are not conscious of that Love you can’t benefit from it. Really knowing Jesus is about recognizing His Love. Check out this scenario, there is a young man that I mentor who was irritated due to lack of money to take care of his needs for the week. Nearly 45 minutes later he calls me excited, he found a 100.00 check in the door of his car that was written to him the week before. The whole time he had money, but he wasn’t conscious of it so it did him no good. We all have the ability to take part in the treasures of God’s Love, but we all are not aware of the potency and therefore miss the opportunity to experience an unexplainable peace attached with knowing him. As we are swiftly approaching Christmas let us be EXTREMELY thankful for the Love of God, secondly let’s make it our mission to spread that love so that others can become aware that there is someone out there bigger than life that is watching over us.
For God so Loved the World…….
