THERE’S HOPE FOR YOU!                                           Jeremiah 29:11-14

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” (v11)

God’s people were living as slaves in Babylon, why? Because of disobedience to God. And worse; Babylon was about as pagan as you could get. It wasn’t the kind of place Christians hung out. It was a moral and spiritual wasteland. And on top of that, the Israelites own preachers were leading them astray. So God told them, “Don’t let all those so – called preachers and know-it alls… take you in with their lies” (Jeremiah 29:8-9TM) Yet in the midst of all this, along comes the God of hope saying, “I still have a plan for you. It’s not over till I say so. I’m going to turn things around for you. Your best days are ahead.”

You say “How do you know that God still has a plan for me? “Because you’re still breathing. He has a plan for every single person He ever created, and it never goes out of date. Unlike the milk in your supermarket that has an expiration date on it after which it can’t be used. God’s plans don’t have expiration dates. Even if you’ve missed His plan entirely for years, that plan can still swing into operation the moment you turn your life over to Aim and fall in line with His will. Now your plan might be somewhat modified from what it would have been 20 years ago if you’d paid attention, but that doesn’t stop God. He can adapt to fit anything that comes up, in any life that’s ever lived including yours. So, there’s hope for you. (TWFT)

PRAYER LINE: Song, My hope is built on nothing less, Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ Name – Chorus: On Christ, the solid rock I stand, All other ground is sinking sand.
