Jeremiah 29.11 – January 16, 2020

Jeremiah 29.11

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. (Jeremiah 29.11, NIV)

“It was my dad’s favorite and he would tell me and my sister this verse a lot. It means a ton to me to this day.”

Thought Questions:

When the future looks uncertain to you, how important is it to know that God knows you and what is to come for you?

Why do you think some people hold a view that God is simply waiting for you to do something wrong so that he can punish you … that he really doesn’t want what’s best for you or even enjoys bringing calamity upon you? How can you show others a better picture of God, that he loves and wants good for us?

How can we be faithful to the future God has for us, even when it may be different from the one we might plan for ourselves?
