“I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
04/17/09 God doesn’t want you to be harmed. Considering all of the catastrophes in the world, this may be difficult to believe. But it’s the truth. Our inability to readily accept this idea is primarily that we think about our own definition of the word “harm” which may include any painful or uncomfortable circumstance. Whereas, ultimately, God’s concern is for our souls. God knows our earthly bodies are temporary homes while we consider them to be all that we have. The Lord wants to save us from eternal harm which equals separation from Him. His plan is specific to each of us and includes distinct opportunities and motivations to know Him, love Him, pursue Him, and participate in the plan that He has designed exclusively for each one of us! Where is He trying to get your attention?
