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.”

“He know the future, and his plans for us are good and full of hope. As long as God, who knows the future, provides our agenda and goes with us as we fulfill his mission, we can have boundless hope. This does not mean that we will be pardon from pain, suffering, or hardship, but that God will see us through to a glorious conclusion.”

What does God have to do to get your attention? We are so caught up on the wrong things when it comes to following Christ, when you read Jeremiah 29:11 some of us automatically think that it’s going to be an easy walk but guess again. What would you want God to choose, your eternal safety or your earthly comfort? (Please choose wisely) I woke up this morning with a heavy heart, thinking about bill even before giving God thanks, but I stopped myself and prayed asking God to forgive me and thanking Him for waking me up this morning, then I had my devotion and off to work I went. As I was driving into work I heard Gods’ voice saying “COMPARTMENTALIZE YOUR MIND,” Huh! with my brows up and a smile on my face I said, OK Lord! Now how do I do that? I can hardly think straight is what I was saying to myself, as the day went on I kept hearing the same thing being repeated in my head. Now I tell you this my day was already being attacked with negative taught, bad news, and worse news, how can I do this with all this distractions in my head(SILENCE YOURSELF). I took a break and sat in silence and just stilled my mind for a while then everything was made clear, a diagram came to me with all the different categories of my life in my head but it was jumbled. JUMBLED,SCRAMBLED,TOSSED UP! So now I have to rank what I’m seeing, easy some might say but I say “REALLY, REALLY NOW! God has a wonderful sense of humor.

I took a piece of paper and started to list every item that I could see: Jesus, Me, Bills, Tithes, Girlfriend, Family, School. What is wrong with this list? Everything is wrong with this list, I felt convicted as I was writing so I just scrapped that piece of paper and started a new one. The new one went like this: Jesus, Tithe, Me, School, Bills; what has priority over Christ? Nothing. What Takes Priority over Tithing? Nothing, after you work you bless God with 10% of you gross income, HUH! Really? Yes, Really! I struggled with that for a while, I used to pay my bills first and then pay God. Think of that as giving God your left overs, would you want Him to give you his left overs? NO! I still struggle with that sometimes to be honest with you but I getting better at it.

We place God somewhere in the middle of our agenda when he should be our number 1 priority. I know we have bills and some of us are getting paid next to nothing, but guess what? The God I server has never left me yet, not one time EVER! I mess up everyday, I even short change Him on some occasions, but He still hasn’t left my side. So why can’t I be more obedient to the God who loves me so much that he sent His only son to DIE for my sins. Come on man, I can do better, I will do better. “What does God have to do to get your
ATTENTION?” The Proof is there, we are just being blind, caught up in our own ambitions, greed, lustful desires, and heaven know what else, but I pray in the name of JESUS CHRIST THAT you to let that go and run after God with all your heart and soul and you’ll see an entirely new life in Chris Jesus.

Why is trusting God so difficult? Is it because you see so much death, poverty, unfairness, and the list can go on an on but the most challenging statement is how can I trust in a God I can’t see. I laugh so loud when I hear that, here’s my answer “YOU WOKE UP TODAY!” some even have an excuse for that. It’s hilarious when placed in the face of danger how the most unbelieving person finds God, God is real I see HIM everyday. I believe in Him so I see Him, call me crazy I will take that, call me whatever but what I know is that I don’t have to see HIM to see HIM.

Heavenly Father, in whom I place my entire life I ask that you open my spiritual eyes so that I may not walk by my sight but only walk in your faith. This isn’t an easy journey but I know that you are with me. In your son Jesus Christ name I pray. AMEN!

Worry; what does it mean; why do we do it?

” Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are YOU not much more valuable than they? Who by Worrying can add a single hour to his life?”

” And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field glow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more for YOU, O YE of little faith? SO do not worry, saying, ‘what shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’or ‘What shall we wear?’ For only PAGANS run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first HIS kingdom and HIS righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Matt 7:25-34

1) Worrying damages your health.

2) Worrying causes the object of your worries to consume your thoughts.

3) Worrying negatively affects the way you treat others and reduces your ability to trust God.

Planning for tomorrow is time well spent but worrying about tomorrow is time wasted. I know that sometimes it’s difficult to distinguish between the two, when careful planning and thinking ahead about your goals are executed all while¬†trusting Gods guidance there’s ¬†no need for worries. Worriers are consumed by fear and finds it very dificult to trust GOD.

DO NOT WORRY!!!!

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK!

JUST BELIEVE!
