Advent Devotion 14

God Has GOT This!

By Anne-Britton Arnett

 

Jeremiah 29:11   For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.

 

Morgan and I had the opportunity to hear Christine Caine in September at a Joyce Meyer conference.  She was very high energy, which Morgan loved, and had some fantastic insights.  In this time of uncertainty, with the change in leadership of our country, she shared an amazing point of view that I thought would be good for all of us as Christians to reflect upon.  To paraphrase what she said:  Do you think God is up in heaven saying, “Oh my – what will happen to us?  Look at the United States of America!  What are they doing with their election??  O-M-Me!!!!”  (I love that humor.)  She continued, saying:  No – of course not!  God has GOT this.  His plan is bigger than our plan, and we need to learn to trust Him.

Let us all to continue to pray Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”

The plans HE has in mind are bigger than us!  He has amazing plans in mind for each of us, during the Advent season and continuing on into 2017.  I’m so excited to see the path He has laid out for each and every one of us.

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for continuing to hold us in the palm of Your hand.  We know that your eye is on the sparrow, so how much more do You have in store for us!  Continue to give us strength and hope in our times of doubt and fear. Amen.
