The Truth About You…Who I am
God Has a Good Plan for Me
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)
This Sunday we heard again about the story of Joseph. You can read Joseph’s story in Genesis 37 or you can watch this video as a reminder.
Man, Joseph sure was having a bad day, wasn’t he? More than a bad day, he was having a bad time altogether!
- Why did God let good and bad things happen to Joseph? (Read Genesis 50:20: You planned to harm me. But God planned it for good. He planned to do what is now being done. He wanted to save many lives.)
- How can God use bad things for good? If you were Joseph, would you have kept following God during the bad times?
- How can we keep following God, even on bad days? (pray, talk to our parents about it, remember that God has a good plan for us)
- Can you think of anything else in the Bible that seems bad, but was used by God for good? (Jesus’ Rescue!)
God can take the very worst day EVER…and he can use it for good. If we are a part of God’s family, we can trust that he will always take care of us, even if we go through some bad days. All we have to do is remember that God has a good plan for us and that helps us trust in him!
Watch this video and remember that God doesn’t only have a good plan for you and for me, he has a good plan for ALL of creation!
