For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Vacation plans, weekend plans, and today's to-do list. We make all sorts of future plans. We strive to be in control and minimize surprises. Jeremiah 29:11 reminds us that it's God who is in control of the future, and He has very good plans for our welfare. Hope abounds when you're secure in the wisdom of the Lord.
