Another Job Interview
Oh Lord, it’s another job interview. This could be a new beginning or another disappointing failure. God, he needs a success—he’s had so many disappointments. Could this be the job that he will finally stick with? Will he find fulfillment and responsibility with this position? Will he discover his passion and purpose in this job? Will they even consider him for it?
For I know the plans that I have for you declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not calamity—to give you a future and a hope.” (NASB) Jeremiah 29:11
DECLARES the Lord! Not suggests the Lord, not mentions the Lord, not a postscript from the Lord. The Lord DECLARES—“I know the plans I have for you.” This seems pretty certain! God knows the future and His plans are for good; they will not harm us. This is TRUTH. God has provided a blueprint for a hopeful future. His agenda is divine and unshakable. God DECLARES his personal plan for each of us, which promises boundless hope.
Lord; direct my son to your plan for his life. Thank you for the confidence I can have in your divine design for each of our lives. I will rest in the assurance of your provision of grace, strength, hope and love. I release my worries and give my son to your plans.
