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 (NIV)
Sometimes, people can see God as a strict father. We think he is looking down from heaven waiting for us to make a mistake so he can punish us. But God is love (1 John 4:16). He looks down from heaven and sees us as perfect through the blood of Christ. He created us with a destiny in mind for each of us. He has plans to give us hope and a future.
God, thank you for planning a good future for me. Help me to walk in the future you have planned. Use me for your will and glory. In Jesus name. Amen.
