Jeremiah 29:11

Jeremiah 29:11
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

The plans that God has for you are great indeed, both in this life and in the life to come. God has made you a royal priesthood. He does not want you to think small of yourself because when you think small of yourself you are downplaying the work of God in your life and not giving Him glory. It is not humility that makes you look down on yourself, what humility does is to make you look up unto Jesus and not to yourself as your source and provider.
When the lord talks about an expected end here, he is referring obviously to your life in this earth, because there is no end in the life to come, it is everlasting. God wants you to have a fulfilled life more than anyone else, even more than you. One of the primary works of the devil is to make us lose consciousness or never come to the realization of this fact.
When you have come to understand that God wants the best for you, then and only then can you rest in Him and can you indeed be free of anxiety in the midst of much contradictions. Your rest in God will facilitate a trust in Him that will make you consciously want to live your life in accordance with His will no matter how hard it might seem.
 One thing I need you to know today is that God has a plan for your life. You have a file in heaven, you are that important. God did not bring you to this earth without having a detailed plan for your life; you are not an orphan in this word.
One of the ways you can make sure you are walking in God’s will for your life is by making sure that you love God and that you are doing what He has called you to do per time.
