God’s plan for us is hope for the future.
At the beginning of this new year, we may find ourselves thinking of what the future holds. The chaos in our world today along with events in our own lives make it easy to slip into a state of worry or fear. But that is not God’s plan for His children.
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.
No matter what is going on in the world, your life, or in your home right now, God is with you. He is watching over you and preparing a place for you.
My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
God’s ultimate plan for us is eternal life with Him. What is this world in comparison to eternity? Even though your trials seem endless, this life is just a fleeting glimpse, the blink of an eye, in the timeline of eternity.
