We have a plan and a future because of God’s intentionality.
I remember very clearly one day when I was 11 years old, I answered the phone and on the other end was a man with a strong American accent. It was a Pastor friend of my Dads but my father wasn’t home so I asked if I could take a message.
He gave me a message but it wasn’t for my Dad, he told me it was for me.
He gave me Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future.
There have been many times over the years since then that I have clung onto this promise.
Whenever God speaks He declares His purpose for our lives. He promises us an extra-ordinary life but we have to reach for it and align our heads and our hearts to His intentions.
Gods blessings and abundance is only limited by “US”, not by His resources, power or willingness to give.
He wants to bless us and He has great plans for our lives but He leaves the process to us.
God takes care of the outcome but we take care of the process.
That means, we must take action and step out in faith. God specialises in working through normal people like you and me who believe in a supernormal God who will do His work through them.
Whatever God calls us to do or directs us to take a certain path, He always provides the resources we need for the situation.
There are always provisions that go with our dreams.
Allow yourself to go beyond your own intellect, beyond what you think you are capable of and believe in a God that can do exceedingly, abundantly beyond what we could think or even imagine.
Last week, God showed me more of His plan for me with this business.
To say it is daunting would be a huge understatement but I don’t want to miss out on anything that God has planned for my life and for my family.
It will take commitment, dedication and perseverance on my behalf because I am in charge of the process but God is in charge of the outcome and how reassuring is that.
We just need to be faithful, faithful, faithful and then we will be fruitful.
When God speaks to you, He creates a space for you to move into the promises and provision that He has for you.
We just need to match our intent with His. Don’t stand back, move forward and step into the life that God has promised for you.
