Most everyone has something they are hoping for and believing to receive. For some it may be a better job, or a promotion. For others, it could be concerning their finances, or excelling in school. Still, with others it could be related to personal relationships, health issues or family matters. The point is, we all have something we are hoping to receive or achieve. But let me ask you something: Have you committed those hopes and dreams, needs, and desires to God? Have you gone to Him in prayer about His plan for your life? If not, then you may be setting yourself up for a big disappointment. Why? Because God already knows exactly what you need and what’s best for you. And He has already made provision for you to receive those things. He said in Jeremiah 29:11, New Living Translation, “For I know the plans I have for you…They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” The Message says it this way: “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” Think about it: As His child, God has taken special care to plan your future and make sure you have everything you truly need, and rightly desire. That’s makes you pretty special! It’s OK to have hopes, dreams, and aspirations. And it’s good to put forth the effort to make those things become a reality. Just make sure you consult with the One who holds your future in His hands. Make sure you know that your hopes and dreams are part of His plan for your life. Then, you can look forward to a bright and prosperous future—with no concerns of failure. You can know that God is working on your behalf, and He will see that you have everything you need and desire because it’s His will for your life.
