“‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares The LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart,” Jeremiah 29:11-13.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,Nor are your ways My ways,” says The LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts,” Isaiah 55:8-9.
“For I know the plans that I have for you. They are plans to help you.
They are plans to cause you to know that I want you to be all that I want you to be.
I will stretch you, and I will mold you into the image that I want to make. But know that your ways are not my ways. For I always have a higher purpose in mind.
For many think that they have a plan for their life; they think that this plan is the right one.
But I tell you that you cannot see the end from the beginning. You don’t know what the outcome would be.
For you see only with your human eyes. Your sight is limited. Your vision is limited to only what you see in front of you.
But if you would grab a hold of my hand I would show you the distant mountains and vistas.
The world is unraveling,” says The LORD.
“What you see in front of you is only temporary, but I AM eternal. It is time to get your houses in order.
For the wind will blow hard against this nation that you are in. It is not my will that any would perish, but some have chosen not to accept Me as their LORD and Savior.
My plans are to prepare you for what is ahead. Yes, I want to give you a hope and a future, but that hope and that future is to be found only in Me.
But if you put your hope in My Future, then you will be brought through the calamities that are coming.”
