The LORD said, “Surely I will deliver you for a good purpose…” – Jeremiah 15:11
God purposes to do so much for us, in us and through us!
God purposes to save each one of His children through the salvation freely offered through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. We need only trust that God has purposed it, and by faith receive God’s beautiful and merciful love gift of salvation.
God purposes to transform each one of His children through the renewing and cleansing, freeing and healing of our lives – our minds, hearts, thoughts, words and actions. God’s great purpose for each of His children is to make every one us – conform every one of us – to be more like His Son Jesus in all that we are in our innermost being and in all that we do, say and express.
God purposes to use each one of His children as loving, reconciling, grace and truth sharing ambassadors of our Lord Jesus Christ. God purposes to equip each of us with the filling of the Holy Spirit and with the power of His living and active Word.
Our God purposes so much fullness of life, now and for all eternity, for each one of us as His children! We need to trust our God, whose purposes will be achieved!
“So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” – Isaiah 55:11
