For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11).
If you have been in church long enough, you have heard this verse quoted a thousand times during senior recognition day. You may have heard it during a sermon when it comes to finding God's will. This verse was even quoted in the movie "Soul Surfer."
We know this verse to be true because it is in the Bible. The question is, is this verse a promise for us? Voddie Baucham explains who Jeremiah 29:11 was written for:
