"For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."
These words from Jeremiah 29:11 are some of the most well known in the Bible. What isn't as well known is that they were spoken to people who had just been carried off into exile and told that they would be there for 70 years.
In today's world, we look for a day without coronavirus. That is the future we want. But God says that we can thrive in the midst of exile and captivity. Be encouraged that you can be fruitful and multiple in the midst of this difficult season.
