Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NLT)
11 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. 12 In those days when you pray, I will listen. 13 If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.

Jeremiah wrote a letter from Jerusalem to the elders, priests, prophets, and all the people who had been exiled to Babylon by King Nebuchadnezzar. In the letter Jeremiah told the people to plan to stay where they were for a while. They were to make the best of where they were: building homes, planting gardens, marrying and having children. They were not to be dismayed but instead they were to know the Lord had good plans for them that would give them a hopeful future. When they prayed and sought God He would be there where they could find Him.

Our God wants to give us a future with hope. While life around us seems chaotic, God is still is still God: perfect, powerful, all knowing, loving, merciful, gracious, holy, ever-present, omniscient and more. God wants us to come to Him in our moments of joy, distress, happiness, sadness and seek Him out for answers. God tells us if we look for Him wholeheartedly we will find Him. I am sure there are many today who needs answers only God can provide. Stop today, pray, and then listen for God to speak in your life. He is there waiting on you to come to Him.
