For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
I have learned with age and experience that I can never assume to know what someone else is thinking - what their motives are and what they're thinking. In fact, it's probably best to never let my mind stray in those negative directions and just assume everyone is on my side - even when I may be pretty sure they're not.
I love this verse because He makes it very clear to us - He's thinking about us - and He's thinking wonderful things about us!!... He's thinking about how we can have peace and joy and a wonderful future! Isn't it comforting to know He's thinking good things about you right now? No doubt about it!
