For I know the thoughts and plans I have for you to give you hope in your final outcome Jeremiah 29:11, AMP.
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
God desires to see you flourish in this life. He wants to see you come out of setbacks stronger, wiser, increased and promoted. He wants to give you hope in your final outcome and see you come to a flourishing finish.
When my father died unexpectedly, all in our family was not well. We didnt know how everything was going to turn out. We didnt have all the answers, but we understood the principle that God never ends on a negative. Instead of getting stuck on that page, we just kept moving forward little by little, doing our best, being faithful, being good to people. When I look out today, I can see the faithfulness of God. I can say like David, Look what the Lord has done!
Remember, when you encounter adversity, know that God isnt finished yet. He never ends on a negative. He has more in store for you if you will keep pressing forward. Dont let your thoughts get stuck on the circumstances. Instead, lift up your eyes to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith. Trust that He is working behind the scenes on your behalf, and He will lead you into a flourishing finish!
A Prayer for Today
Father, today I humbly come to You ready to receive Your favor, grace and mercy. I cast my cares on You. I cast my questions on You. I put my hope in You knowing that You will bring me to a flourishing finish in Jesus name! Amen.
