Psalms 46:10 brings us the universal scripture “Be still, and know that I am God.” Being still can be one “tall” order when epidemic trouble is playing out in your life. But, when you come to the beautiful realization of just who God is, you will know His thoughts toward you are not evil in any way. God actually desires to have your trust. Your full trust in Him opens up the door for Him to guide your life into beautiful and fulfilling endeavors.
“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. The definition for “thoughts” in this specific verse means, “plans, purpose, invention”. The word “thoughts” seems small, but when you catch on to the fact that it is interpreted this way, it makes it mean so much more. Not only does God think of us each in a very beloved way, He also has a plan and purpose for each person on this earth, if we choose to follow it. When you think on that, doesn’t it just make your heart leap?
Now, This doesn’t necessarily mean that life won’t bring you problems. What it means is that if you place every facet of your life in His omnipotent hands, He will, without exception, work out everything for your good! What a wonderful feeling it is to know that even in trail, you can have peace, sweet peace every day! Peace in knowing that God’s plan is perpetual no matter your circumstance. He is faithful, never failing and always working on our behalf because of His magnificent and extravagant love for us, His children. Praise Him!
