For I know the plans that I have for you, says the LORD, plans for peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
As God promised to salvage and rebuild the ruined lives of His people after they were carried away into captivity for their sin and rebellion against Him, so God still salvages and rebuilds ruined lives today by calling lost and condemned sinners to faith in Jesus and His cross for pardon and forgiveness and then recreating them and giving them new hearts by the gracious working of the Holy Spirit through God’s Word.
O gracious and merciful God, I have sinned and ruined the life You gave me. Forgive my sin for Jesus’ sake and renew my heart that I may live for You. Amen.
