Jeremiah 29:11

Yesterday morning during my quiet time with the Lord, I read a passage of Scripture that has always been very comforting and encouraging to me.


Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV)

“For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord,

thoughts of peace and not of evil,

to give you a future and a hope.”


My Bible is the New King James Version and that is usually the translation that I prefer. But I liked the New Internation Version of this verse even better.


Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

“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.”


Just imagine…God knows MY future…tomorrow, a week from now, a year from now, and even many years from now. He desires the absolute best for me. He doesn’t want to hurt me but to help me. He has already given me hope of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ. And He plans a life for me full of joy and success if I will continue..

“Living for Jesus a life that is true;

Striving to please Him in all that I do;

Yeilding alleigence, glad-hearted and free;

This is the pathway of blessing for me.”
