Jeremiah 29:11-13

Topic: The P.L.A.N.S that God has for you and the P.L.A.N.S. you should have for God!

It is a blessing to know that God has some plans for you.

It does not matter if you are young or old, God has some plans for you.

It does not matter if you are a male or female, God has some plans for you.

It does not matter if you are rich or poor, God has some plans for you.

It does not matter if you are black or white, Latino or Asian, God has some plans for you.

It does not matter if you are educated or not, God has some plans for you.

It does not matter if you are single, married, widowed or divorced, God has some plans for you

It does not matter if you are Baptist, Pentecostal, Methodist, or Catholic, God has some plans for you

It does not matter if you are employed or unemployed, God has some plans for you.

And the reason why I know that God has some plans for you is because God said it himself in the Word of God that He has some plans for us.

Now in Jeremiah 29:11-13, in the King James Version, the scripture says,"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."

It is a blessing to know from this scripture that God has us on His mind, and He is constantly thinking about us. In last week Sunday School lesson, we learned that God constantly has us on His mind, and He never forgets about us, for in Isaiah 44;21 says, "Remember these things, O Jacob, for you are my servant, O Israel. I have made you, you are my servant; O Israel, I will not forget you."

And because God is constantly thinking about us, He has some great plans in store for us because if you look at Jeremiah 29:11-13 in the New International Version, the scripture says," 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."

Also if you look at Jeremiah 29:11-13 in the New American Standard Bible, the scripture says "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. "

In the New Living Translation, Jeremiah 29:11 says," For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. "

So we see in the Word of God in Jeremiah 29:11 that God has plans for us to be blessed abundantly, for Jesus Christ himself has said in St. 10:10 that "I came that you might have life, and have life abundantly", and in 1 Corinthians 2:9, the Apostle Paul has said, "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

Now, if we were to attempt to discuss all the plans that God has for us, we would be here for eternity because God has so many plans in store for us.

Psalms 40:5 in the New International Version it says, "O LORD my God, you have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them."
