God’s Plans For You

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:11-13 ESV)

We spend a lot of time thinking about God’s plans for us.

While this is definitely a good thing, it’s easy to have the attitude: “It’s all about me.”

It is true that God cares about every intricate detail in our lives. Jesus said that even the hairs on our heads are numbered (Luke 12:7). And after all, when compared to God, everything is small.

But should we expect that the main purpose of God’s plans is to make us happy right here, right now?

Jeremiah’s message in today’s devotional verses is radically different.
