The Veil of Expectation

“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

Unmet expectations

Do you have a long list of expectations for your life? The veil of expectation has broken my heart numerous times. The human response is to make plans and to have goals. You can find yourself behind the veil of expectation when you only focus on your plans and will not consider other ideas. Have you been spending excessive time working on a plan God never intended for you?

God’s plans

Prayerfully consider this Scripture verse and consider the veil:

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)

This was written when Israel was going into exile. The Israelites would be working through a very challenging time. Should you expect anything less?

The unveiling

Think about your life choices, your career, your hopes and your dreams. Do you sense the Holy Spirit bringing new ideas to mind? God created you for His purpose. Your talents, skills and sphere of influence are all part of God’s created plan. Can you honestly say you are pursuing His plan for your life over your own plans?  You can easily make a plan and run with it, but shouldn’t you remove any veil that hinders the voice of God asking you to follow His plan?
