Do You Believe the Best—or the Worst?

Published Date: September 3, 2018

SCRIPTURE:

“…For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope…”
(Jeremiah 29:11 NLT)

DEVOTIONAL:

Reading online or watching the news on TV can be depressing, and even scary sometimes. Terror, suicides, aborted babies, young people on drugs or confused about their identity…the list goes on of the tragedies, anger, division and fear that plague our cities and the world.

You might feel that it’s hard to remain positive, especially if troubles hit close to home or affect those you care about. “Where is God in all this?” People wonder. “Why did He let this happen?” It’s true…we live in a fallen world filled with sin and evil.

But, if you know the Lord, you are not without hope. God’s Word is full of good promises for you and your loved ones, even in the midst of all the chaos. Believe and confess the Word over your health, family, finances, community and country.

Focus on Jesus and not on your problems, fears or doubts. Open your eyes and your heart to see and embrace God’s good plans, knowing that the Lord will protect you from disaster. Don’t look back, but look forward to the hope-filled future God has ordained for you for such a time as this.

PRAYER:

Lord, I thank You that even in the midst of the seemingly unsolvable problems in our world You have good plans for my family and me. Our future is bright and full of hope as we place our faith in You, both now and for all eternity with the Lord. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
