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. (Jeremiah 29:11 ESV)
Dear Heavenly Father, When we stop to consider the BILLIONS of people who have lived… the BILLIONS of souls that have been created in YOUR image…. It’s staggering. But the Bible tells us that not only did You create us all individually, but that You have a plan and purpose for each of us. That’s mind-blowing to me. I thank You and praise You, God, that when You designed us, You didn’t leave us to fend for ourselves, but You are invested in our lives and well-being. Everything that You allow to happen is something You can work to Your glory and purpose. Even when we can’t see it. And even when we forget to believe it. Thank You, God, for being our Rock and Redeemer, our Savior, and our Deliverer. And for being the very Architect of our existence. We love you and praise You. Please help us magnify You in all we say and do today. In the Holy Name of Jesus, Amen.
