There’s always an element of shame when it comes to the promises of God. You ask yourself is someone like me suppose to be experiencing this? What will people think ?Why did God allow me or put me in a situation that makes me look like a contradiction. But then I remember Esther was an orphan before she became queen, Joseph a slave before being a leader, Elizabeth was barren before John came to life, Sarah was barren, Mary was pregnant while being a virgin . Because we know their names and their stories we hold them in esteem but so many of us are orphans, slaves, barren, empty people who the world probably doesn’t even think anything. We are people who probably have been tucked aside as Joseph thought to do to Mary. Despite it all God looks at us the same way he looked at Esther, Abraham, Mary, elizabeth, Jacob, Leah and he says I have a plan for you even if the rest of man doesn’t.
So rest in the fact and truth that the king and creator or heaven and earth has an incredible future in store for you if ONLY you will believe.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
