“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
…the Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love, therefore, I have continued my faithfulness to you.
For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.
Set up roadmarkers for yourself, make yourself guideposts; consider well the highway, the road by which you went.

Set up road markers for yourself, make yourself guideposts, consider well the highway, the road by which you went.
