September 2: God (Still) Has Plans For You
These words from Jeremiah 29 are found on coffee cups and Pinterest art. They remind us that God has plans to bless and proper his suffering people. But make sure to read the context. Jeremiah spoke these words to people who had been taken captive in war. And they were not about to go home. God had great plans for his people, but they didn’t involve a quick fix to all their earthly problems. In the same way, God’s plan to prosper your spiritual life might not be the path you prayed for.
