Are you feeling down today? Perhaps a little depressed or even lonely? Whatever might ail you today, find comfort knowing that God has a plan for you. I know from experience that it is not easy sometimes to “snap” yourself out of these emotions. You feel paralyzed and helpless. So what should you do?
Turn to Jesus and His word. Spend time each day meditating on the word of God. By doing this you will be drawing near to God and when you do, God will draw near to you.
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you”. (James 4:8 NKJV)
God Has A Plan For You – God’s Promise
“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)
Once you enter into a relationship with God, you’ll see how your life will begin to turn around. Your state of mind will be refreshed and rejuvenated through the Holy Spirit who resides in you. You will be better able to focus more clearly on your future and see that good things are in front of you. Your worse days will now be behind you.
God has a plan for you. His promise to you as stated in the scripture above is God has a plan, plans to “prosper you….and to give you hope and a future”. You know He would not make a promise He could not keep. So instead of focusing on when the “promise to prosper you” will happen, focus instead and rest on His unconditional love. Allow His love to manifest and take root deep down in your heart knowing God will give you’re the very desires of your heart.
Since you can’t see into the future what’s the point of trying to do so. That’s God’s job. He has your future all planned out. He has you covered. So your journey now has nothing to do with any setbacks you may encounter along the way. And chances are you will experience some setbacks. But instead focus on your journey in Christ Jesus. Find comfort knowing that the Creator of the universe goes before you and makes your crooked places straight.
“I will go before you, and make the crooked places straight” (Isaiah 45:2 KJV)
So let God “deal” with your future. Get excited that your future is bright. Keep your dreams alive. And dare to dream big. It’s not over until God says it’s over. God will pour out his blessings and favor over you and you will live an abundant life.
