God knows the plans he has for you. Plans to give you hope and a future. But there is a qualifier, an obedience clause. I call it an if/then clause. If you do this, then you get that. If you want to unlock God’s door to Jeremiah 29:11 then you have to turn God’s key of Jeremiah 29:12-13.
The key is calling on God and seeking him wholeheartedly not kind of – sort of – maybe today because you just played Tasha Cobbs on your morning commute to work. It’s running frantically after him like a mother who lost her child in the clothing racks of a department store (I used to be that child). The pursuit of God is that serious. You won’t find God or Jeremiah 29:11 until you search with everything that is in you.
“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. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV
