Dear God, If Today I Lose Hope, Please Remind Me that Your Plans are Better than My Dreams! – InspireMe
Jeremiah 29:11 … 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.
Probably one of the most poplar quoted scriptures but that doesn’t make it less true! God loves you and want you to trust Him with your dreams!
“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
Hope is closely allied with faith and vision. In Hebrews, the writer tells us, faith is “the assurance of things hoped for” (Hebrews 11:1). Hope is the object upon which we direct our focus and energies.
As a Christian, hope is the knowledge, we are being changed for the better as we trust in God’s promises (Romans 8:28). You believe, no matter the circumstances, God’s plans for your life is “for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11b NLT).
Abraham also modeled hope. When he was 75, God promised him, a blessing to give him many descendants, as numerous as the stars in the sky. Abraham heard these words and believed God (Genesis 15:6).
But despite his belief, Hebrews 6:15 explains, Abraham had to wait 25 years to see the fulfillment of his hope. Yet all the while, Abraham trusted in God. Abraham looked to God as “the Author of his hope” and he saw the promise come to pass.
