The Promises of God:
"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" (Jeremiah 29:11).
Another translation says "a delightful end" - what a promise! First of all HE is thinking about us! Not as we picture Him (someone trying to catch us doing wrong) but rather thinking of us with thoughts of PEACE!!! Thoughts of PEACE and NOT EVIL!! Are you understanding that? Clearly those that attribute evil to God do NOT know HIM! Another translation says "to give you a future and a hope!" Now that's good news! When life gives a one two punch leaving us winded and not knowing quite what hit us - we can still KNOW that HIS thoughts towards us are peace and although WE may think our life is over - HE still has a "future and a hope" for us! Hallelujah!
