A Messianic Daily Devotional
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” Jeremiah 29:11 NAS.
Whatever delays, disappointments, setbacks, or heartaches are chaffing your soul raw today, they will not hold back the overwhelming blessings, prosperity, favor, and future plans the God of the universe is weaving in your life right now. If you will trust Him, He will make all things new! Take hold of new hope that explodes into faith and brings you into a fruitful plain.
The Hebrew word for hope here is tikvah from the ancient root kavah meaning to bind together; to expect. The concept is not abstract but tangible as cord that binds two or more objects. When we exercise hope, we are bound together with the promise of joyful expectation about tomorrow!

Working it into daily life…
Offer the one pain or disappointment to God in prayer. Ask the Lord to reveal the way through this problem that it may be healed and used for good in your life. He will give you steps that may require you to risk, like forgiving someone or asking for forgiveness. Meditate on the scriptures and see what healing God will bring in your life and what a path new beginnings He creates.
