You Have A Bright Future

celebrate Jesus Son of God

SCRIPTURE

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

~Jeremiah 29:11 NLT

QUOTE

The moment you start blaming others; your risk of failure increases.

~Yaakov

my thoughts red

The physical universe is a reflection of spiritual realities. Jesus taught spiritual truth using images from the natural world. We must remind ourselves that Jesus created both realms, the natural and the spiritual. Jesus reminded us that His Father is always at work and He has the ability to work through all things natural or spiritual, good or bad. We have a tendency to give up when negative things happen but God can use the negative to produce the positive. We live in a world of opposites and God can use one just as well as the other.

Light-Darkness
Good-Evil
Love-Hate
Hot-Cold
Wet-Dry
Peace-Emity
Male-Female
Success-Failure
Pleasure-Pain
 

Whereas most folks prefer day, night is necessary. We sometimes wonder why God allows evil but if there was no evil, could we know good. If we had no knowledge of war, peace would mean very little. If we did not know failure, we could not know success. The fact that negative things happen to us does not mean that God is against us. God is always working in our favor for His glory. God has a plan for you which gives you a future and a hope. Don’t quit; don’t even give it consideration. Walt Disney went bankrupt seven times. Donald Trump went bankrupt once. Henry Ford never graduated high school. Albert Einstein could not read until he was seven years old. Colonel Sanders was broke and homeless at the age of 62.

  1. Take responsibility for your sins.
  2. Don’t make excuses: make plans.
  3. Keep your eyes on Jesus
  4. Remember: failure is not final unless you quit. Don’t quit.

P.S. There is only one way to heaven-Jesus and one way to hell-not Jesus.
