Jeremiah29:11” 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.” This is a frequently quoted verse and yes the Lord God did make this declaration over the nation of Israel. But what does this verse really mean? What is God telling His church through this verse today?
He is telling every child of his, who resides on the earth, that he has plans in store for their future. Good plans with promise and filled with hope. For you see God never thinks evil towards anyone and he rains his mercy on the evil as well as the good. The Lord has a unique and blessed destiny for every one of us who call on his name in truth and righteousness. He invites us to join him in the specific plan he has prepared for us to walk in before the foundation of the earth
Ephesians 2:10” For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” The Father has prepared good works of success and blessing for each one of us before he created the universe, stars or earth. He has known the plans he has for each one of us for a very long time. We need to submit ourselves to God and walk in the wonderful, unique and individualized expression of grace he has carved out especially for each person; giving them the gifts and personality traits to accomplish this great work in the kingdom. So never cast your hope off for a fruitful life for the one who said…..”For I know the plans I have for you.” will accomplish and perfect that which is in you until the day of Christ Jesus.
