Chapter 31

“I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.”

—Jeremiah 31:3

 

There are four things about the love of God that I’d like you to meditate on today.

 

First, God loves you. He loves you more than anyone else could ever love you!

 

Second, God’s love for you is eternal. Time cannot erase it. God loves you and He will always love you.

 

Third, God’s love for you is unconditional. This concept is hard to completely understand at times because of how conditional human love can be. Sometimes human love is dependent on how we feel about someone…or it’s dependent upon someone loving us in return. But God’s love is unconditional. Nothing you do or don’t do can alter it. 

 

Lastly, God’s love is incomprehensible! It’s immeasurable. What’s most remarkable about the love of God is that in spite of your sin and my sin…despite our failure and brokenness and worthlessness…He reached down and showed us His love by sending His Son to die in our place on the cross!

 

It’s my prayer that you’ll remember just how much God loves you today…and that as a result, you’ll be motivated to share God’s love with others.

 

God’s love for you is eternal, unconditional, and immeasurable!

Chapter 32

Ah, Lord GOD! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.

—Jeremiah 32:17

 

Today, you may find yourself in a rut. Maybe you’re in a place where you’re thinking, “Well, this is as good as it gets.” And perhaps you’ve settled for mediocrity. Mediocrity in your marriage… mediocrity with your children… mediocrity in your career. 

 

But God has so much more for you!

 

“Well,” you say, “I’ve got all kinds of problems… all kinds of issues in my life you don’t know about.” You know, that may be true, but God is bigger than your problems. As 1 John 4:4 says, “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”

 

So let me ask you today: What are you asking God to do in your life? Because God wants to do supernatural things in you… things you could never imagine!

 

Think about what God tells us in Isaiah 43:19: “Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”

 

In other words, God is saying, “Look! Can’t you see it? Can’t you taste it? Can’t you feel this new thing that I’m doing?”

 

God takes barren places in our lives and uses them for His glory. That’s when He does the brand new thing in our lives! And God wants to do something new in you.

Chapter 29

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

—Jeremiah 29:11

God has a good plan for you, and He has had it right from the beginning! That’s right; even before He laid the foundation of the world; God wanted your life to accomplish something wonderful for Him.

God believed in the plans He had for you so much that He sent His Son to die on a cross, so that you may be able to succeed for eternity. Because of that sacrificial gift of love, you can live your life according to the great hope and joy that He has planned for you.

None of us are perfect, and we will fall short from time to time.  But we can always get back on the road that the Lord wants us to be on.

God has a wonderful plan for you…and a wonderful destination.  But you must choose if you want to fulfill those plans. Make the choice today to live for Christ and walk down whatever path He takes you. And when you run off the path, stop, look to God for guidance, and get back on the right path.

God has great and unimaginable plans for you.  Plans for a future and a hope!

Thank God today that He has a plan for your life.
