I have a name for you that no one else knows. That name is rich with identity, purpose, and your ultimate destiny. Do you want it? Search for Me in the secret place so I can reveal who you really are to Me and to My Kingdom. 


This is one of the most beloved verses in the Bible because it’s filled with such hope and certainty. you can just hear the Lord proclaiming it over you. I know I can.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” – Jeremiah 29:11

Did you know the word “thoughts” is interchangeable with the word “plans”? God is saying He has an actual plan for who you are supposed to be, what you are to accomplish for Him, and just how you are to accomplish His vision for your life. 

God wants you to expect and have great hope for where your life will end up. Not just for Him showing up in your life where you’re at right now. Problem is, many people are happy – even comfortable – with where they’re at right now.

People who are dirt poor only wonder about how they will survive. People who are doing OK often stay right there believing, “I’m not dirt poor, so I’m not in survival mode.” I have news for you, comfort and standing still is survival mode. 

You see, while paupers and those “getting by with a little left over” are busy keeping up, rich people and kings worry about their legacy. I’m not talking about money. I’m talking about identity. If you are a king, you are supposed to constantly consider your bloodline and your legacy. The kingdom should be better off because you are trusted with it.

Do you live like a king or a pauper when it comes to your identity? Are you searching out what the King of Kings says about you, claiming it, and standing upon His promises? If you’re not, you should be. Believing you are a King and acting on that identity is the only way to find your purpose and destiny. Leave a legacy. It’s that simple.
