Daily devotional: God has plans for me

Scripture
"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

Observation
God's plans are amazing. He gave this message to the Israelites while they were exiled to Babylonia as punishment for their nation's many sins. But He didn't forget them, and he never forgets me. He has plans for me. He wants me to trust Him and put my full faith in Him, so that He can prosper me, and give me hope and a future.

Application
Continue to put my trust in the Lord God Almighty, regardless of whether external circumstances are great or grim. Believe Him who has plans for me, and stay excited to continue to see how His plans unfold.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for showing me this verse years ago and laying it on my heart as my own. And thank you for bringing it back to me and really conveying that this verse is still for me too. I do trust in You. I put my full faith in You. Help me to remember this when times are good and when times are not good. Thank you for Your awesome plans for me that You keep revealing to me as they unfold. I love you!
