The Christian cop out: ‘God has a plan for you’

“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.

We’ve all seen this verse stamped all over graduation cards, written on letters addressed to people suffering from great loss or on the Instagram of some teenage girl going through her first break-up.

The phrase, “God has a plan for you” has become the Christian go-to answer for all situations of heartbreak and uncertainty. It sounds like a sweet sentiment, but I am afraid it is becoming an unhealthy habit.
