DAY 3 - God Promises Good Plans for Your Life

For 
I 
know 
the 
plans 
I 
have 
for 
you,” 
declares 
the 
Lord, 
“plans 
to 
prosper 
 you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will 
call 
on 
me 
and 
come 
and 
pray 
to 
me, 
and 
I 
will 
listen 
to 
you. Jeremiah 29:11-12

These 
powerful 
words 
are 
part 
of 
a 
letter 
from 
the 
prophet 
Jeremiah 
 to 
the 
Jews 
who 
had 
been 
exiled 
to 
Babylon. 
Their 
beloved 
city, 
 Jerusalem, 
had 
been 
destroyed, 
and 
the 
people 
had 
been 
carted 
away 
 from 
the 
land. 
Things 
could 
not 
have 
been 
much 
worse. 
Yet 
this 
was 
 what 
God 
had 
promised 
if 
the 
people 
continued 
their 
disobedience.

Reading 
1 
and 
2 
Kings 
will 
quickly 
reveal 
the 
depth 
of 
the 
people’s 
 faithlessness. 
So 
great 
is 
God’s 
love, 
however, 
that 
he 
promised 
to 
bring 
 his 
people 
home 
again 
(see 
Jeremiah 
29:10). 
Then 
follows 
the 
amazing 
 promise 
that 
God 
has 
plans 
for 
them—good 
plans—that 
give 
them 
a 
 future 
and 
a 
hope. 
When 
they 
pray, 
he 
will 
listen.

As 
God’s 
people 
today, 
we 
also 
can 
claim 
this 
promise. 
God 
does 
have 
 plans 
for 
us, 
plans 
to 
prosper 
and 
not 
to 
harm, 
plans 
that 
will 
give 
us 
a 
 future 
and 
a 
hope.

God’s 
plans 
are 
good. 
Thank 
the 
Lord 
for 
the 
promise 
of 
good 
plans 
full 
 of 
hope.

God’s Promise to Me
•I 
have 
plans 
for 
your 
life.
•When 
you 
pray, 
I 
will 
listen.

My Prayer to God
Thank 
you 
for 
your 
plans, 
Lord. 
You 
promise 
that 
when 
I 
pray, 
you 
will 
 listen. 
Help 
me 
persevere 
in 
seeking 
you. 
In 
seeking 
you, 
I 
know 
that 
I 
 will 
find 
you.
