Jeremiah 29:11 - For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Ephesians 1:3-6 - Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.
Ephesians 1:13-14 - In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee (down payment) of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.
Dear God, it is sometimes very easy to lose focus on Your plans for me. Worries about the future caused by the GOP hatred and other world events often try to distract me. Help to focus more clearly on You and Your plans for me, though not so focused that I actually end up losing sight of it. I have an inheritance in You because You chose me before the world even began. How wonderful is that! Thank You. In Jesus' Name, Amen!
