Farm Wife Devotions: God has a plan
There are so many things that are “up in the air” in farming…
When to sell wheat
What crops to go with this year
Is this the year to re-invest or save money
Is that storm on the horizon going to decimate our crops?
And the list goes on and on.
But the one thing that is NOT “up in the air”, is God’s love and plan for us.
That is not to say He wouldn’t allow us to make a poor choice or that He will keep anything we see as “bad” from happening to us. After all, He’s given us the ability to choose.
But right here in Jeremiah, God promises His people, the Israelites, that He has a plan for them that is good and a plan that will give them hope and a future! I am not a Jew, but because of what Jesus did on the cross, and because I have put my faith in Him, I am one of God’s people. So that plan for good, a hope and a future, is for me too!
What a reassurance! The God of all creation. The God who is all powerful and omniscient, has a plan just for me. A plan just for you! And it’s for your good!
Father, when I begin to worry and wonder about our future, help me remember that You have a plan for my good. I may not “see it” or understand the plan, but I will trust you to see it through. Thank you for the hope and the future that gives me! Amen!
