The Light Daily Devotional – The Thoughts of Peace
Focus: The Thoughts of Peace
WORD FOR TODAY
Everything the Lord allows you to pass through is tailored toward your peace. The expected end of your ordeal in the heart of God is not evil but a glorious future and hope!
“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 NKJV
The word of God considered today, is the message of the Lord to His people in captivity. The Lord allowed their enemy to overpower them and take them captive but yet His word to them was that His thoughts towards them are that of peace. Whatever the Lord allows you to suffer, experience hardship, delay or loss; His thought towards you is peace.
There is a beast in every man called the sinful nature which is very stubborn and will never submit to God’s will. Hence, the Lord sponsors various situations of life to bring us to the end of ourselves to tame this beast. Do not waste the dealings of the Lord in your life; this is because there is a purpose God wants to achieve with every situation of your life. There is an offense to be avenged when your obedience is complete. Cooperate with Him to have the life he wants to give you!
+ What are your thoughts towards God?
Prayer: Lord! Fulfill your purpose in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: The thoughts of the Lord over you in every situation you are passing through is to ensure that you have a future and hope!
Have a Blessed Week!
