Jeremiah 29:11> 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.
God had a plan for us even before we entered in to our Mother's womb He knew us. His ultimate plan was to give us life through Jesus Christ and to redeem us from sin and destruction. In Roman 5:8, God's word clearly shows us and God proves His own love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.Our hope and future is in Christ Jesus.

Nehemiah 8:10> The joy of the Lord is your strength.
Joy. It's not a warm, happy feeling you're supposed to have now and then when things are going well. It's much more than that. Joy is one of the most powerful spiritual forces in the world. Look again at Nehemiah 8:10. If you were to diagram that scripture and remove the phrase, "of the Lord," you would find what it's truly saying is this: Joy is strength. The two are interchangeable.
That's what makes joy so crucial. You can't live a life of faith without being strong in the Lord—and when God wants to make you strong, joy is what He uses to do the job! Joy is not just a state of mind. It is not a fleeting emotion. Joy is a very real force, and the devil doesn't have anything that can stand up against it. Just as fear has to yield to faith, discouragement has to yield to joy.
Since joy is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit, you already have it residing within you. But you must develop it, confess it and live by it if you want to enjoy its power.

2 Corinthians 13:5> Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you ; if not, you have failed the test of genuine faith.
The Bible depicts in the story of Job, a great example of a man's genuine faith in God. God allows the Devil to test Job with tragedy to prove to the Devil that no matter what you do to Job that he is a faithful man of God and he will not curse me. Job loses everything and in the midst of his tragedy Job examines himself and after all the testing, Job says to God though you slay me yet will I trust you. What an awesome example of Faith! We should follow the example of Job. James 1:3 tell us as a believer, that when your faith is tested, you learn to be patient in suffering. The big question is, Is your faith genuine? When you are faced with tragedies, trials ,and test, how will your faith prove out? Will you be the light of God or will you dwell in darkness?
