Day 01 -You are important to God

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Life can beat us down with trials, sorrows and debilitating worries.

God’s messages about our future hope can deeply encourage, inspire, uplift and motivate us. One of the saddest concepts in any language is contained in the word hopeless,” When people have “reached a point in life where they have lost all hope, that is tragic and indescribably painful. It can happen on a battlefield or in a hospital room; in a marriage or when we feel indescribably alone; when we’ve given our very best and know it still won’t be good enough, or when we know we failed to give our best and others are going to suffer because of our inadequacy. Hopelessness can attack people from many different directions, but at its core it consists of: • Facing terrible circumstances. • Feeling there is no way out.

The terrible circumstances can have many roots: abuse, family dysfunction, poverty, injustice, being cheated, oppression, social isolation, alienation, loneliness, etc. These can lead to anxiety, counterproductive thoughts and addictions, depression, apathy and suicidal thoughts. The awful conditions we face might be visible to all, but they can also be hidden and our suffering invisible to those around us. However, in all these situation we can understand that we are important to God. And been important to God means that there must be a way out of our conditions as we are encouraged in Corinthians 10:13
