The strength of a man consists in finding out the way God is going, and going that way. -- Henry Ward Beecher
In the book of Jeremiah, God says....
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 a hope and a future." 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
When our biggest dream/goal/longing in life is to seek God's will for our lives and to walk in His light .... how quickly it is that we find true peace. God has a plan and purpose for each of us in this world. He wants us to have a wonderful future.... a future of hope and prosper. But we must also keep His words in perspective.... these words spoken through Jeremiah do not mean that God wants everyone to be rich, famous, and on top of the world.... no, Gods plans for us gives us hope and a future.... a future so amazing that the riches and fame of this world cannot compare. God wants us to seek Him with all our hearts.... with our strength find the way God is going and walk that way too..... seeking the plan He has for our life. Walking in His will day by day.... moment by moment ..... indulging in His goodness...................... And when we find ourselves walking on the path He sets before our feet ..... living our life in His will, His purpose..... Oh, the joy we find, the peace we encounter.... though trials may assault us.... we can really KNOW that God is there.... holding our hand.... giving us hope for a better tomorrow and a wonderful future through His son Jesus.
