I’ve joined my blogging friends for a new facet of my blog, called His Encouragement, inspiring scriptures shared each Thursday. My hope and my prayer is that these scriptures each week will bless your heart and encourage your soul.
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.
Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
I love the last phrase of this verse- to give you an expected end. Why do you think it says “an expected end?”
I thought of three reasons why.
First, because He’s already in your tomorrow! God is not confined by time and space as we are. He not only sees the future. He’s already there. He knows what’s going to happen in your life. Nothing that will happen to you will catch him off guard. He’s not going to say, “Oh, no! I didn’t see that coming. Now, what am I going to do?” It’s so wonderful to know that He is already there.
Second, I believe it says “an expected end,” because of His promises in scripture, we can expect what our end will be. According to Romans 8:28 (KJV), “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” We can expect that anything that happens in life will work out for our good and for His glory, if we allow it too.
Thirdly, it says “an expected end,” because as children of our Heavenly Father we know where our life will end. IF we have accepted His son as our Savior, we have this confidence that we will spend eternity in his presence. He is the victor over sin and death!
