Thoughts of Peace to Give Us an Expected End – Jeremiah 29:11

Print Post

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Thoughts of Peach - Jeremiah 29:11 Before I went off to Bible college a lady made me an embroidery stitched picture with the verse Jeremiah 29:11.  Sadly, at the time I had no clue what the verse really meant.  As I began to grow more spiritually in Bible college by continually reading and hearing God’s Word, my spiritual understanding deepened.  I remember coming home from college and glancing at the verse one more time and instantly understood what the verse meant for me… There’s a lot of rough roads along our journey in life, but it’s a comfort to know: 1. The Lord’s thinking about us!  Just as we love our dear children and think of them often, so does the Lord Jesus! 2. The Lord’s intentions are not evil.  Even though trials may leave us doubtful that the Lord really cares about us at times, His intentions are of “peace“…they’re for our well-being! 3.  The Lord’s got an expected end planned for us.  We can only see so far down the road…but God’s well able to see the far end of things.  He knows the results (and again, they’re for our benefit) if we’ll but trust Him to lead us along. It’s Sunday — Enjoy meeting at the Lord’s House today! God bless your week ahead, ~ Rhonda White
