Wednesday's In The Word
Need a little encouragement in the middle of your week? Start your Wednesdays off right! Renew your spirit and refresh your soul.
One of my favorite verses for a reason... I know any day when things aren't going my way, I can read Jeremiah 29:11 and be reminded that all things will work together for my good. To know the Lord has outstanding plans for my life brings a calm to my soul. Often times we see Jeremiah 29:11 stand on it's own, but I don't think it is complete without reading the following verses.
When things aren't going our way, sometimes we just need someone to listen. God is ready and willing at any moment to hear what is on our hearts. Sometimes our struggles are not easy to share with others, even the people closest to us. Although talking to God may seem like a one sided conversation, He is listening and He is working on our behalf. Results may not be instant and may not be our idea of the way things should turn out. Sometimes the difficult moments are exactly what prepares us to prosper in the future.
When our hope lies in God first we are seeking Him with all of our hearts. We are guaranteed to find God and reap the benefits of a believer when our seeking is genuine. He knows where our hearts stand. When our hope is in Him, we can rest assured that the future and it's possibilities are without limits. Even the impossible can happen with God by our side.
Call + Pray + Seek = Find + Hope + Prosper
