Jeremiah 29: 11 – 14 NLT
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. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,” says the Lord. “I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. I will gather you out of the nations where I sent you and will bring you home again to your own land.”
God has a perfect plan for you as His child, He plans for prosperity, peace, joy, and love. There is no evil in the plans of God where you as His child are concerned. He loves you so much that He has all your life from the day you were born until the day you leave this earth to go home perfectly laid out for you. These plans are well thought out by Abba. The God of heaven took time out to plan a perfect life just for you. This is how personal it gets with God about you. These plans give you are future and hope, imagine that. A future to look forward to and hope to get to your future. There is nothing left to chance and guessing when it comes to your life. He further says that “if you look for me wholeheartedly you will find me” We are always left with clarity when God speaks, there is nothing confusing or ambiguous at all. God has set us on a path that we should follow. This word above is an invitation to us to look for the promises of God through His ways, in the end, there is a guarantee that we will surely find Him. Proving God at His word is also a challenge in its own sense, like when He says “I will be found by you”. This tells us clearly that we can never say “it feels like God has left us “God is not a sensation but a God of His word, He is bound by His word. This means that the word of God can be proven for the source of the word is integrity, it is God Himself. Therefore, when you pray, be confident to challenge His word that has entered your spirit man to produce results. The demand we place on the word is not to God, but to the situations around us that want to challenge His word and render it null and void. God wants to see all of His children in their perfect places in life. He promises to listen to us when we pray to Him. There is no need to live in fear of an unknown future. Your future is in God’s hands if you believe and obey His word. Our security is in trusting and obeying His word. Anytime you find yourself in a tight corner that seems like there is no way out, go back to His infallible word and you will surely find the way out. There is a now word in the bible for anything you are going through right now.
