Today’s Scripture“...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, KJV)
The Scripture says that God declares “the end from the beginning.” When God planned out your life, He started with where He wants you to end up, and then He worked backward. His plans for you are “to give you an expected end.” The good news is that you don’t end in defeat, in failure, in disappointment, or in heartache. You end in victory, fulfilling your destiny. You can live in peace, knowing that in the end, all things are going to work to your advantage.
But there will be difficult seasons in your life when it looks as though things didn’t work out. You may be in a difficult season right now, and it may look as though your dream has died. You have to remind yourself that’s not how your story ends. The Most High God has already planned it for an expected end. If you’ll keep moving forward, He’ll weave it all together. He’s already established the end.
A Prayer for Today“Father, thank You that in the midst of a very insecure world that I can rest in the security of knowing that my end has been set, knowing that You always cause me to triumph. I believe that You are working all things to my advantage. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. ~Joel Osteen
