"Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD. -Jeremiah 29:11
This morning I am thanking Jesus for his goodness. "No Matter What!" (even though my phone fell in the water and doesn't work right, it isn't fully paid for yet and I don't have insurance on it) God is still God and he is a GOOD God and my lips will praise him.
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.
When God looks at us He sees us from the future.... WOW! that is such a big deal. Little things in life can get our focus off of God and his plan for us. When we only see the small finite things of today we tend to be troubled and frustrated. God is looking at a much bigger picture.
He sees us growing everyday and he guides us in the way he wants us to go.
He sees the crowds of people in front of me and how they are being impacted. He sees the TV show I am on that is spreading out to goodwill to many many people across the nations. He sees the lives that are being changed through the words of my mouth and the touch of my hands.
Look into the future and know the desires of your heart are GIVEN TO YOU by your Father. Speak them over yourself. See them coming to you now.
Take some time and WRITE out the things you desire to do in your life. Write them out as if they are already happening. Time has no constraints to God, so what happens in 10 years is the same as today to God. God is Spirit and our Spirit connects and interacts with His Spirit. Don't think the desires you have are merely YOUR desires. They have been placed there by GOD.
Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart's desires. Psalm 37:4
Why would he give you your hearts desire? Because he placed them there!
