My eyes will watch over them for their good, and I will bring them back to this land. I will build them up and not tear them down; I will plant them and not uproot them.
Jeremiah 24:6 NIV
God Will Build You Up
Canada needs to ramp up home building by 50 per cent just to keep pace with immigration, according to a report released in February of this year. At that time, the country was on track to break ground on about 210,000 housing units this year, according to Desjardins Securities. But the Desjardins report says about 100,000 additional housing starts are needed this year and next, as Canada gets ready to admit a record number of immigrants.
What kind of plans would you make if someone said to you that they would ensure that those plans would not fail? Most of us would go ahead with confidence and plan for our greatest dreams to come true. I have good news. Your Creator has a plan for your life, and nothing, absolutely nothing, will be able to thwart those plans. Jeremiah 24:6 speaks to this: “My eyes will watch over them for their good, and I will bring them back to this land. I will build them up and not tear them down; I will plant them and not uproot them.” God had a plan for His people, Israel. He was building a people for Himself and He would call them to represent His love and holiness. It was all pointing to the nation He would build through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. He is now building a people for Himself from every tribe, tongue, and nation, and nothing will stop Him from doing that. As Jesus told His disciples, He is building His Church and not even the gates of hell can stand against Him. He will work His plan out for your life as well.
These have been words from the heart.
