God’s Abundance: Your Future (#924)

Good morning.  We will continue our series today on God’s abundance.  As we’ve seen in the last number of sessions; God has tremendous abundance.  Abundance of righteousness, abundance of an ability to call on him, abundance of financial supply; in just every part of life, God has abundance.  What we’re going to talk about today is God has great abundance as far as plans for our future.  Some people get very worried about their future, they maybe rely on one thing and if that one thing doesn’t come through, they figure: we’ll that’s it: that didn’t happen, so I have nothing good to look forward to.  Or maybe they had only one or two things, they had like two options, and if they don’t work out, we’ll they’re toast.  Whereas, the reality is God has an abundance of great things in store for us; in the near term and in the far term.  And it is important to know that and be aware of the huge abundance God has for our future.  So we’re going to cover a number of different verses, looking at this from different angles today.  Let’s start in Jeremiah 29…

Verse Listing and Notes
Jer. 29:11-13              An expected end [NRS – a future with hope – 3615, tiqvah – hope, expectation, grounds for hope](vs. 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. (vs. 11 – NIV)
I Tim 1:1                     Lord Jesus Christ our hope
Col 1:3-5                     For the hope which is laid up (NIV: stored up) for you in heaven – vs. 5
I Pet 1:3-5                   Begotten us again unto a lively hope be the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead – vs. 3
Rom 5:3-5                   Knowing that tribulation worketh patience
This doesn’t mean, of course, that we have only a hope of future joys – we can be full of joy here and now even in our trials and troubles.  Taken in the right spirit these very things will give us a patient endurance; this in turn will develop a mature character, and a character of this sort produces a steady hope, a hope that will never disappoint us.
