A Personal Statement
There is never an inopportune time to meet with the Lord. “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” (Jer. 33:3). Why? “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will harken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jer. 29:11-13).
Indeed, God does love us and has a plan for our lives. He will redeem us and restore us to Himself.
