“My God plans on prospering me today!” (Jeremiah 29:11) – Creflo Dollar
And all God’s people said…Amen! Lord, we receive Your promises and thank You for Your unending mercy and gracious love.
I want to dig into this a bit because promises like these tend to make some Christians uneasy and I don’t want any of us to misunderstand the deeper message of this faith inspiring graphic. Our God wants to prosper us but our God is not a genie. He doesn’t live in a magic lamp waiting to pop out and grant us three wishes. Our God certainly doesn’t have a prayer request hotline called dial-a-wish. Instead, we kneel before an all-powerful God to humbly present what needs we can see with our limited vision, all the while insisting that His Will be done because above all things He knows what’s best for us. And we praise Him for all He has done and will continue to do in our lives. And we know deep inside our selfish hearts, God is infinitely better than having three wishes.
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.”
His Word says He wants to prosper us but we must remember that doesn’t always look and feel how we think it should.
Isaiah 55:8-9 8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. 9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Our answered prayers may not always be what we thought we needed or asked for. We must remember, no matter the situation or circumstance we find ourselves in, we must fervently thank God through it all because according to Jeremiah 29:11, He has hopeful, prosperous plans for our future, and that dear friends is faith inspiring 🙂 Remain steadfast in your trust of the Lord. #GodIsGood #Faith
I humbly pray that the Lord uses this message to renew and restore your faith and trust in Him, as well as, igniting within you a passionate obedience to live out His Will.
God bless you.
