1. For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
2. Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!
3. The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
4. Beloved, do not believe every spirit but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
