Devotion for August 11

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.”

With the return of the Olympics i am compelled by all the “never-give-up” stories of athletes reaching for their dreams. My dream is for God’s people to recognize Him, bow down in humble adoration, and strive to complete the race he has begun; to tell your friends and neighbors: love others as if the world really is on fire!
