“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.” – Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
As children of God, one of the things we can be grateful for is the knowledge that God has destined us to do great things. He created you for a purpose. He has opportunities He wants to give you and assignments He wants to entrust you.
I’m sure you’ve realized by this point in your life that you will face opposition as you follow God. People who are called to greatness meet great challenges. God never promised us it would be easy. In fact, He guarantees we will have adversity in this world (see John 16:33). But He also promises to be with us through difficulties, to fight on our behalf, and to strengthen us to overcome any obstacle we confront.
No matter what comes your way, keep following the Lord in faith and with a grateful heart, knowing that Hes has destined you to do great things for His glory.
Prayer of Thanks
I thank You, God that You have given me a hope and a future. Help me to follow Your leading and walk in my destiny. I trust Your guidance, and I am thankful for Your presence and power in my life.
