Blessed Assurance sung by Third Day (5 min)
Though their future looked bleak, their discouragement turned to relief when they learned God’s plans for them were for good and not for harm--to give them a future and a hope. (See Jeremiah 29:10-14) When we find ourselves in overwhelming circumstances, like those captives, we too can breath a sigh of relief and rest in the promise that despite how life looks at the moment God’s plans for us are always good—to give us a future and a hope. We can count on it!
Do not fret; only believe
—Jesus (Mark 5:36)
