The Lord Heareth…“The righteous (believers and followers of Jesus Christ) cry, and the LORD heareth and delivereth them OUT of all their troubles.” (Psalm 34:17 KJV).
Satan would love nothing more than to cause a believer to doubt during times of trouble. Doubt who? Doubt what? He wants us to doubt the LORD and to doubt that the Lord will hear our cries and deliver us from all of our troubles.
It’s scary when we are facing times of uncertainties in our lives. We often do not know what lies just around the bend. But, God does. He knows the beginning from the end, and He already has a plan! And, we can TRUST his plan…”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.” (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV).
Wow! Isn’t it just like God to give us such an amazing, awesome, and wonderful promise!! His plans are always to prosper us and not to harm us; plans to give us hope and a future! In order words, like the songs says, “We’re gonna make it…We’re gonna make it…We’re gonna make it…We’re gonna make it to the other side!” And, WE are going to make it with GOD on our side!
Nationwide Insurance has a commercial (jingle) that says, “Nationwide is on your side.” Well, I’ve got good news for you…As believers, we have more than Nationwide on our side!!…We have God on our side, and He won’t let you or me down!
Amen. “I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD.” Today, let us give thanks unto our Holy Lord for already knowing the PLANS he has for you; and for me.
Take in a good, long, deep breath and let the hope and assurance of God’s promises calm every fear of the heart and imagination. God is Good…God is Faithful…God is on our side!
Remember, God Loves You!
