Lord is Good to all and he has Good plans for us

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]

We all know God is our creator and being the creator he should be having plans with making us come to this world. When we think of plans, the way and purpose of planning  we should not compare it with the way planning is done by us. We make plans with a self in mind. We also plan for others, usually whom we know, just because that person is close to us or we consider ourselves close to them. Here if if we are planning for others we have a self in mind. But when we are trying to understand the plans made by our creator, we should first erase all thoughts we have about planning and the concept behind it. This is because if we try to understand plans of God with our SELF in mind we may not be able to completely understand the purpose of those plans.

God is the creator of the entire mankind, and the plans that he has for us is only because he loves us. It only this love that he has for us, which motivated him to make plans for us along with our creation. We can find the love God has for us ion the following bible verses:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." [John 3:16]

So we can conclude that he had done all that we see around us, our family, our profession everything just because he loved us. When we also start loving others the way God loves us, we will start think good for them. This is a very basic nature. For us this nature depends on situation and scenario, but for our creator this nature of loving us if not the one which changes time to time.

but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
[Romans 5:8]

Even when we were sinners we were loved and still loved.. and this was just because he loved us. Now lets see the kind of plans God made for us. Again I would say that we should not try to understand it based on our way of thinking. The verse in context Jeremiah 29:11 says that Gods plans for us are for welfare, and for a future and hope. All these terms are good terms which will help us get a life full of blessing and prosperity. This verse that is been mentioned is not for a single person or individual, but for the entire humankind. 

If we read this verse more clearly, we see that this is not been said by a prophet or an individual or a information passed to us casually but it says that this message was as "declares the Lord".  The word Declare... means saying something with seriousness and emphasizing the topic. When we or any one declares  a news or information it has its own level of intensity and importance, secondly the importance of the information increases based on who is that declaring the information or message. Now when we put all that we had read till now into a single sentence we can say...

Lord our creator, with total seriousness and emphasizing the topic, is saying that he had made good plans for our prosperity, welfare and hope for everyone who can read this message. 

What else we need to know more than this that the one who had made us is also capable and authorized more than us in making plans for our life. Let start looking to our creator to know the plans he has for us and ask him to provide us the patience and faith to stand firm on receiving those in our lives.

Lord is Grace...
