Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 07/10/16

This week’s scripture is from Jeremiah:

Jesus Christ risen“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)

Life does not always go as planned. Regardless of how carefully we plan, life can take unexpected turns and things can go suddenly awry. We might find ourselves at a loss or at a crossroads and not know what to do, but the Lord knows; He always knows, and His plans never fail.

If we belong to Him, then our lives should be given into His hands, and our plans for our life should be His plans for our life, for God’s plans are always for whatever is best for us, whatever will help us and draw us closer to Him, whatever will make us more like Christ. For God is good and all He does is good. Let us remember to always seek Him first before we make our plans, for He is our provision, and in Him is our hope and our future, in Christ.

May you be open to the Lord’s leading in your life, for your life.
