God Can Create the Best Future for You

Reading for the day: Jeremiah 29:11-12

“’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.  Then you will call upon me, and I will listen to you.  You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.’  ‘I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will bring you back from captivity.’”

We love to plan out our own lives and chart the course we think it should take, aiming for the kind of happiness and success we’ve always dreamed about.  And we may seek advice and guidance from friends, family and co-workers, hoping that they can tell us the right choices to make and the right path to follow.  We hope that these people want what is best for us, but even those who love us may be torn in their loyalties or mistaken in their advice.   After all, they want what is best for themselves as well as you, and they certainly can’t see the future!

But if you put your full faith in God’s guidance, you will find the path to what will make you happiest and is bet for you.  God promises clearly that he already has plans for us in place, and we only have to call upon Him to find out what those plans are.  God clearly sees the future and knows what is going to happen – no one else can know the future, so no one else can guide you as surely and honestly without steering you in the wrong direction.

God will reveal His plan to you if only you are willing to ask Him and truly listen.  We may sometimes face hard times or detours, but God knows that these are necessary detours that we have to take in order to get us where we should be going.  How wonderful that God clearly sees the future and can put us on the right path, knowing that no matter what happens along the way, we will end up at the best possible future for us as God’s children.

Prayer Suggestion: Ask the Lord to grant you the patience and wisdom to turn to Him for guidance.  Let Him know that You trust in His desire to give you the best possible future, and that You will slow down enough to listen to His guidance rather than the rush of the world around you.
