“I will bless you with a future filled with hope—a future of success, not of suffering. You will turn back to me and ask for help, and I will answer your prayers.” (Jeremiah 29: 11-12, Contemporary English Version)
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to accept this benediction for ourselves? Wouldn’t it feel satisfying, safe, and assuring to willingly receive this blessing upon our future along with the awareness that we will always have a recourse for help should we need it?
So, let’s just do it! Let’s release ourselves with gladness and gratitude to this word from God. We have access to this hope for tomorrow, and it rests in accepting God’s blessing today. Let the struggling thought, fearing or fretting over the future, pause to receive God’s abiding promise right now. God’s Love is yours today. It is yours tomorrow. It will always be yours.
In this moment, we can receive this divine assurance. We can expect success and not suffering. We can set aside those beliefs that evil is inevitable or that we are somehow the exception to God’s rule of abundance and grace.
Gratefully realize that this word of God is yours. It comes from Truth itself just for you. You can expect the best. You can know that even if uncertainty does arise in your glorious future, you will always have a place to turn. God will lead you back on course, back to His intention for you and for all—to express His own glory and to be blessed today, tomorrow, and always.
