Jeremiah 29:11* “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, ” plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (NIV)
God encourages us to move ahead, he believes we can do the task he has given and will be with us all the way. God is that kind of king and leader, he knows the future, and his plans for us are good and full of hope. God, who knows the future and will reveal the plans he has for us and go with us on our journey to fulfill his mission, this gives us multitudes of hope. Yes, we may, it’s almost certain, face hardships, pain, suffering, and even grief. BUT, God will see us through to a glorious conclusion of our journey.
What a glorious and merciful God we have, Who wraps us up in his abundant unfailing, unconditional Love. Imagine, being loved beyond comprehension, by someone who died in order to get to know us, and has open arms and invites us to get to know him on a personal, intimate, unique tailored just for us, one on one scale. HE’s the greatest LOVE story of all. He’s not an option but a necessity.
We’re on a mission for the one true KING! That’s BIG! I feel so very humble and honored at the same time, He CHOSE ME!
John 15:16* ” You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit- fruit that will last- and so that whatever you ask in my name the father will give you.” (NIV) Jesus made the first choice, we make the next. To either accept or reject his invitation to come live with him forever. If he didn’t make the first choice, we wouldn’t have any choice at all.
Deuteronomy 4:2* For you are a people holy to the Lord you God. Out of all the peoples on the face of the earth, the Lord has chosen you to be his treasured possession. (NIV)
