“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.”
Jeremiah 29:11 (TLB)
“For I know the plans I have for you . . . They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper. . . .
Jeremiah 29:10 (NLT)
. . . “You will be in Babylon for seventy years. But then I will come and do for you all the good things I have promised, and I will bring you home again.”
Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD, “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29: 12,13
Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
John 6:34 (NLT)
“Sir, they said, “Give us that bread every day.”
“Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”
John 6:41 (NLT)
“Then the people began to murmur in disagreement because he (Jesus) had said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.”
John 6:48-51 (NLT)
“Yes, I am the bread of life! Your ancestors ate manna in the wilderness, but they all died. Anyone who eats the bread from heaven, however, will never die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread, however, will never die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and this bread, which I offer so the world may live, is my flesh.”
John 6:53, 55-56 (NLT)
So Jesus said again, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you cannot have eternal life within you.. . . For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.
John 6:60 (NLT)
Many of his disciples said, “This is very hard to understand. How can anyone accept it?”
John 6:66 (NLT)
At this point many of his disciples turned away and deserted him.”
John 6:67 (NLT)
“Then Jesus turned to the Twelve and asked, “Are you also going to leave?”

But Simon Peter answered Him , “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. And we have come to believe and know You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
