Day # 24: A Future & A Hope { HeArT to hEaRt }

Day # 24: A Future & A Hope

Love {hopes all things...}
1 Corinthians 13:7

We have talked about the sure anchor, the hope God made available for us, eternally.  Do you also know in your deepest of heart, that you have an earthly hope? Here's how we know for certain.

{ For I Know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for peace and not for evil. To give you a future and a hope.}
Jeremiah 29 : 11

Precious promise for God's children of Israel, and to you.  In another translation, the word "plans" is interchanged with the word "thoughts". Either way, the Living God has good thoughts for you and that produces good plans.

My son helps me mow the lawn on occasion. Really, because if he attempted to mow on his own, his tiny frame and weight would not be enough to meet the chair weight sensor.  A couple years ago, as he sat on my lap and drove the big mower, he had a plan.  He began to steer all over our green yard. It looked random, but he knew that it wasn't. His thoughts had concurred a plan and he was making it happen.

What was the end result of his mayhem on my lawn?  A self created dirt bike track!  He thought it, planned it, meant it and implemented it.  Did his plan come to fruition?   Yep. Momma gave him time to enjoy his creation on his dirt bike track.

Listen. God Almighty, your Creator has a plan for you. Some days may look like random mess. Some months may be mayhem.  But God has something to do in your life and He has somewhere to take you on your path.

He has an aspiration for you. That should comfort our hearts. What's even more awesome is that the Almighty with the plan, has the power to complete the plan. His faithfulness is enough to bring you to your hope.

{ ...thy faithfulness reaches unto the clouds. }
Psalms 36:5

Let me be honest here. satan does not want for you to know and remember that you have a hope from your Creator, because it is your lifeline. Hope itself is what encourages each of us to push forward and beyond. It's the belief that all our tomorrow's will not look like the mayhem of our yesterdays.

satan, the Deceiver has something to say about your promise. And it's a lie. Anytime the Deceiver whispers the lie that "you have no hope", you tell Him what your Creator said about what plans He has for you....

"a future and a hope."

( I'll AMEN that! )
