Each Monday we post a short passage of scripture with questions to help you start the week off well.

“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).

God knew His own thoughts toward these exiled Jews in Babylon. They did not know or did not remember His thoughts toward them, so God wanted to state them in writing through the prophet Jeremiah.  While God was speaking directly to the people of Israel, that promise extends to all His children today. 

Consider the passage and think about these questions as you start your day.

  • According to this verse, what is the purpose of God’s plan for your life? 
  • What is God asking you to do in this new year?
