A Settled Confidence


Jeremiah 29: 11 tells us of His plans for us. He wants His children to prosper and not fail.

Do you believe this to be true? Do you trust God’s plan for your life? Do you have a settled confidence in that God wants only the best for you?

What do you do when life doesn’t go as planned? How do you handle a sudden change in plans?

Do you panic or fall apart? What does this message say to God?

As I look back on my 20’s and 30’s, I see a woman struggling to find her way. Yes, I knew God then, but it wasn’t like we had a close relationship. I didn’t trust easily and always wondered why everyone else seemed to be having a good life when mine was falling apart.

The answer to all my problems was right in front of me and I failed to acknowledge it.

I didn’t have confidence in myself, let alone God.

But, God never gave up on me. He pursued me every day, until I let go and let Him take over.

Trust me, the peace and confidence God still gives me is breath and life to me.

Seek the settled confidence that only God can give.

1 Timothy 2: 3-4 – “This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”
