God Has A Plan!

Jeremiah 29:10-14 (The Message Translation)

10-11. This is God's Word on the subject: "As soon as Babylon's seventy years are up and not a day before, I'll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. 12"When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I'll listen. 13-14"When you come looking for me, you'll find me. "Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I'll make sure you won't be disappointed." God's Decree. "I'll turn things around for you. I'll bring you back from all the countries into which I drove you"—God's Decree—"bring you home to the place from which I sent you off into exile. You can count on it!

This time of year at graduation you most likely will hear this message for the young people that are moving on to another chapter in their life. Words from Scripture that encourages and gives them hope for their future. It is also one of my favorite scriptures of assurance, but I also wondered as you might wonder how does it apply to us today in the times we live in. What can we glean here, after all this was many years ago when the Jews were in captivity of the Babylonians and Jeremiah had a Word from God to them. There actually was two groups he was addressing, the stubborn ones who stayed in the land of Judah that they would be destroyed and to the ones who were now in exile. They were worried and didn't know if they would be able to return to their homes. Jeremiah is assuring them God has a plan for their life and hope for their future. Even though it was hard to believe, He was in control. Just as it is for us. Now. lets apply this to ourselves. Who is it that comes to steal, kill and destroy? Who is it that tries to take us captive and exile us from our Lord and Savior? The circumstances are different but yet the same. We are living in exile if we are living without Christ. He is assuring us every step of the way, He is there for us. His love never fails! He has a plan, no matter what it looks like, God has a PLAN for our lives. He promises if we call out to Him, he hears us. Isn't this wonderful news? So my message to you, wherever you are at in life and whatever situation you are facing, just believe. God never lies to us. We must believe even when we don't understand, and we must trust His Word for they are life to us. I pray for each of you that read this, that God would be more real to you each day. That your focus would be on Him. Don't look to the left or right, just keep your eye on Him.
