A HOPE THAT NEVER FAILS

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith Jehovah, thoughts of peace, and
not of evil, to give you hope in your latter end. And ye shall call upon me, and ye shall go
and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you."

Jeremiah 29:11-12 (American Standard Version)


After the fall of Judah to Babylon, Jeremiah wrote a letter to the Jews while they were in exile. His message from the Lord Almighty was one of hope.



God wanted His people to build, plan, marry, and multiply - not dwindle away in captivity. While it may have been easy for Judah to give into feelings of despair and hopelessness, God used Jeremiah to tell them that He would fulfill His promises, end their captivity, and restore their fortunes. The Jews were in exile for 70 years, but God had not forgotten them. Even though He did not spare Judah from hardship and suffering, God's purpose was to give them a new beginning and to make them a new people if they repented and turned back to Him.



As I look forward to a new year, and a new decade, I can't help but think about the goodness of God. While plans may fail and dreams may vanish, I take comfort in knowing that the creator of the universe has a purpose and a plan for my life. Whatever comes my way, I know that He will be with me and that I can trust Him with my future because He loves me.



Heavenly Father,
The grace you have shown me is beyond measure. Please forgive me for the times when I fail to lay my plans at your feet and trust you in difficult circumstances. I know that you desire what is best for me and that you are working all things together for my good. Help me to be patient and endure the path before me. My hope lies in you alone as I entrust you with my future. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
