If you’ve ever watched as meteorologists give the weather reports, then you know not all their forecasts are given with 100 percent accuracy. In fact, one recent report showed that a 7-day forecast can accurately predict the weather about 80 percent of the time; a five-day forecast can accurately predict the weather about 90 percent of the time; and a 10-day or longer forecast is only right about half the time. While those may be impressive odds when preparing for what’s ahead weatherwise, none of us would want those kinds of odds when it comes to forecasting our future. We would want our future to be forecast with 100 percent accuracy. Thankfully, as believers, we don’t need a meteorologist, fortune teller, or anyone else telling us what to expect further down the road because God has already given us His forecast for our future. Jeremiah 29:11, English Standard Version, says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” One definition for welfare is “the good fortune, health, happiness, prosperity.” That’s what God says He has in store for you. Everything you need to succeed today, this month, and the rest of your life has already been planned, prepared, provided and worked out for you by God. He sees you in the future—living and enjoying the blessed life as He intended. Be encouraged today to know that, because He loves you so much, God has a prosperous plan for you. His forecast for your life is a solid, dependable plan that He will make happen for you.
