Good morning God bless you,
Today I’m starting with the scripture Jeremiah 29:11 “ 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 wants to prosper you, He doesn’t want to harm you, He wants you to hope in Him and He has a future for you. It is the Lord that is planning to do all these for you. Sometimes you may go through difficult times, it feels like their is a drought in your life a emptiness but let me tell you, God is able to cause rain to fall in the dried place, He is able to fill that emptiness. Maybe you want to hear God speak to you and it seems so quite, know God is working on your behalf.
See God cause you to sacrifice things so He can bless and give you more. Abraham needed to sacrifice his son Isaac, the sacrifice happened in his heart. God made Abraham father to nations.
Job lost everything all he possessed, his family all was lost but later God blessed him twice more than before. You see sometimes before experiencing a financial breakthrough there seems to be a big drought before God blesses you in the way He is gonna do. Maybe it’s not a financial breakthrough you need but a total recovery in your health, even so God can prosper you. Hope in the Lord.
Every time there is a shifting coming it requires you to sacrifice things, it causes you to fight even bigger demons than you’ve already conquered. Every time you need to loose somethings to gain better things God has in store for you.
Recently I lost a friend, the situation cost me a lot of pain and I thought God if it is this what you want so be it. I was hurt and didn’t understand at the time what was happening. I thought I was wrong. But then it came to me, sometimes you may face opposition not because you are doing something wrong but because you are doing something right. Sometimes when a shift is coming it causes you to loose some people because the place where God is taking you not everyone can come along with you. It may hurt at the time but know that God never intended to harm you it is all a process for where God is bringing you.
The word says those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength (Isaiah 40:31). Now it may feel you have no strength left and that your spiritual armour is warn out, but the Lord will renew your strength when you hope in Him. You may be tired but keep pressing on, those who quit are just quitters but those who press on will be victorious.
For a second here let’s talk about Judas the one who betrayed Jesus with a kiss. It may sound strange but thank God for him, because without him there wouldn’t be a betrayal, without betrayal there wouldn’t be crucifixion, without crucifixion there wouldn’t be the death of Jesus and without the death of Jesus there wouldn’t be a resurrection. And it is through this resurrection that I am assured that I will have life and life in abundance through Him. That my future is secure in the hands of the Lord that holds the whole creation in the palm of His hands.
You see we can plan a lot of things but only the plans of the Lord will prosper.
Proverbs 19:21 “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”
Psalm 33:10-11 “The Lord foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples. But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.”
I hope you will be blessed by this writing. Be empowered by the Holy Spirit of God.
