For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
—Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)
Life’s circumstances constantly change. One moment life may be going great, and the next moment something painful occurs. Instead of trusting in God who never changes, we often trust in our changing circumstances. We forget that God is the same “yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
God is good. His thoughts toward you are of peace and never of evil. He is not the author of things vile. God inspires hope and promises His best. Trust Him when the seasons of your life change. Know His truth, and believe His promises in whatever circumstance life places you. When you live by faith in a world where things constantly change, life does not throw you. God is your certain foundation in an uncertain world.
The Holy Spirit is your teacher. Let Him guide you. The power of God lives within you. Believe it and experience His strength and His determination. God’s power—His consistency—His balance is yours to exercise every day. You never ask too much of Him. His provision is constant and unending. Living by faith in His grace brings abundant life.
“‘I am about to do something new,” the Lord proclaims. “See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. Yes, I will make rivers in the dry wasteland so my chosen people can be refreshed” (Isaiah 43:19, 20b-21a, NLT).
You are God’s chosen child. He is a fountain springing from within you and refreshing your hope. His promises are yours. His resources are yours. He makes pathways through the driest wasteland. His living water continually flows rejuvenating your life. Praise Him no matter what you see or hear around you. Believe in His revealed Truth for your life. Speak life to your promises. The peace of God rises from within you. And you know something new God has promised you is yours.
“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us” (2 Corinthians 1:20, NKJV).
