Jeremiah 29:11    “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Many of us are so accustomed to making plans to enrich our lives.  We make plans for annual vacations.  We make plans to further our education and even our children’s education.  We make plans to protect our families from dangers.

Although we make these plans with real good intentions, plans are often interrupted.  As we find ourselves in the midst of this coronavirus pandemic, we have been forced to rearrange, alter or abort our plans.  Yet, we must not lose heart because God has promised that He has plans for us.  God’s plans will keep us even in the darkest of situations.  God’s plans can take us to places we never dreamt we could go.  God’s plans for our lives are not affected by natural disasters or mishaps along the way.  God’s plans are secure and His promises are always kept.  So fret not in these unprecedented times but trust in God’s plans.  Remember, God’s plans are to prosper you and not to harm you, His plans are to give you hope and a future.  Trust in God’s plans!
