Jeremiah 29:11

December 29, 2014

 Jeremiah 29:11 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.

As children of God, we have to keep a constant remembrance of God’s word. In those times where the enemy tries to buffet your mind, we need to counter it with what God says. When the enemy tries to come against you, remember as a child of God that God wants you to be above and not beneath. He wants your focus, worship, your faith and obedience. When your mind is cluttered with doubt and unbelief, it can become easy to focus on the immediate situation, rather than seeing the big picture. The big picture is that you are blessed and highly favored. The big picture is that in the midst of whatever you’re facing, that God’s plans for you are greater than you can even imagine. Jeremiah 29:11 is a scripture that has resonated with me lately, as it is a reminder that our thoughts should line up with thoughts of His peace, love and joy.

As a child of God, each day is a day that the Lord is desiring to get even closer to you. In the midst of the trials or difficulties that you may face during the day, see them as an opportunity that God wants to reveal that much more of Himself to you. In the rough and tough, in the sunlight of peace, God wants to get the glory. And, because of that, as a child of God, you cannot lose. Continue to seek Him and remember His word.
