Plans

My husband has been building a table for our living room the past few days. 

After studying the plans and thinking of all that he would need, he went to the store and bought the lumber and other supplies required to make the table. 

There will be a day when it will sit under the mirror we have on the wall and it will be sanded and stained to a dark brown hue. 

Although it doesn’t look like that yet, I know that it will be. 

My husband could see from the plans what the table was going to look like. 

God had a plan for His people at a specific time in the Old Testament as these words spoke of:

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

God has a plan for us, too. 

Right now. 

Today. 

He wants to give all who will turn to Him a future and a hope. 

He wants to offer us forgiveness. 

He wants to have us with Him for eternity. 

The plans He has for those who love Him are good. 

God can see that His plan is best. 

He knows what we are going to be when that plan is complete in us.
