Deuteronomy 28:9 (MSG) “God will form you as a people holy to Him, just as He promised you. If you keep the commandments of God and live the way He has shown you.”
God is a loving, caring and faithful God. A God who is true to His Word, and to the promises He has made to us. One of those promises was, that He would never interfere with the choices we make.
I think many times I disappoint myself by thinking I know what’s best for me. I want to design my own future, and I know it’s important to plan for the future. But I don’t know what the future holds, and my plans may not be the best thing.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 “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. Then you will call on Me and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart”.
None of us are promised tomorrow, and some of our plans may turn out alright. But God’s plans for us are designed to be much better than alright. All He asks us to do is to ‘seek Him with all our heart’. He knows our future.
Heavenly Father, thank You for those reassurances You give us in Your word. Lord, You have encouraged us to seek You will all our heart, and to trust You when we do not know what is ahead. You have promised to give us comfort and strength in our times of need, and a joy and peace that surpasses human understanding. Please give us courage, strength and wisdom as we journey through this week. Would you protect our family and loved ones, in Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
