If you look at the two Bible passages above carefully, you will discover that one word is common in both, and that is the word “end”. Proverbs 23:18 states that, “For surely there is an end...” and that is the truth. Everything and everyone in life has an end, but there is an end that God desired for His children and that is what He called the expected end in Jeremiah 29:11. The expectation of God for your life is according to the end that He has ordained for you. Let me show you the meaning of that end from the following passage: Romans 8: 28–30; the word predestinate in the above means to set the destination from the beginning. For Jeremiah the prophet, the destination, the end that God set for him was to be a prophet to the nations. In the same way, there is an end that God has set for you in life and all His thoughts and expectations concerning your life are towards making that end come to pass. Understand that the expectation of God over the life of a man which is born out of divine destiny is what informs the thoughts of God concerning him.
Your life may not look like it is going towards the God-desired end but He is constantly thinking about it for you. Do you know that when God looks at your life, the thought that occupies His mind towards you is, “What I have to do next to make sure that what I intended come to pass, not what the devil intended or what men intended.”
What constantly occupies God’s mind concerning you is how to bring into manifestation, the end that He intends for your life. You will be defeated in life if you lose sight of the fact that God has some thoughts concerning you. Your life and existence is a manifestation of the thoughts of God. You are not a mistake on the earth. Your birth was not an accident; it was a manifestation of divine thinking. God thought about you in eternity. Actually, one can say you are God’s idea originally and not your parents’ idea. It therefore means that your very life on the earth should be a construction of the thoughts of God.
