“ 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.”Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
God Promises are True
I was listening to Mary Mary’s song I can’t give up now and I remembered how some years ago I had my breath knocked out of me and life almost brought me to my knees. I lost two good friends, I was betrayed in my personal, business and professional life by individuals I trusted and I learned how deceptive people can be. I learned that not everyone who calls the name of the Lord has a clean heart or the best of intentions towards others.
One thing I always held on to was God and his promises. You see, he catapulted me into greatness through my journey of brokenness and healing, so I can help others who are broken. I am in a much better place today, because of his grace and mercy, as he dumbfounded the naysayers and removed toxic people out of my life. He removed me from situations that would have destroyed me personally and spiritually, because the devil wanted to take me out. God kept me and today I am still standing.
Trust in his word
You may be struggling today with a situation, but I want to encourage you and to let you know that this too shall pass. The dark days will fade away to reveal the light of hope and promise, because God has great plans for you. He is a light in the darkness, a miracle worker, a promise keeper and a way-maker, so continue to pray for your breakthrough, have faith and trust the process, because he is just preparing you for greatness. Always remember, there is POWER in the name of Jesus and you WILL be more than a conqueror in the mighty name of Jesus!
