God’s Plan For You Goes Far Beyond What You Can Ask, Think Or Imagine! (Ephesians 3:20)

God has a plan for your life and His plans are always for the welfare and future of those who are His. The Hebrew translation for welfare is shalom, meaning “complete state of well-being; fulfillment, peace and prosperity.” Even in the midst of sadness and disappointment, God always has plans to give His children hope. His designs for you are not for evil. The plan for your life and the circumstances you’re dealing with at this very moment are designed for you to call on Him and seek Him. When you seek Him, you will find Him. (Matthew 7:7) Absolutely nothing that is happening in your life is a surprise to God. His plan is to use everything for your good and His glory. (Romans 8:28) I encourage you to trust God and believe He is at work in your life and greater is coming!

“I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future!” (Jeremiah 29:11) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, however I may feel and whatever I may face today, I expect You’re working for my good in all of it. I trust You in all things and cooperate fully with Your plans for me! I humbly pray, in Jesus' name, amen. Have a great day and a great weekend! Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you are extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes! In His service, Jacob

Today is a day of new grace, mercy and love from our heavenly Father, so we have nothing to fret or dread about this day. (Lamentations 3:22-23) Whether you’re reading this at the start of your day, the middle or the end, God is with you, God is going before you and God is faithful to keep His promises! (Matthew 1:23, Deuteronomy 31:8, 2 Corinthians 1:20) I encourage you to celebrate what an incredible life you’ve had so far: the many blessings, the accomplishments, and yes, even the difficulties and delays, because they have served their purpose and every trial you face was allowed by God for your ultimate good and His glory! (Romans 8:28) God has a reason and by faith, you will see it, but for now—take a moment and truly think about who created this day and everything in this day, and rejoice and be glad in God’s wonderful gift to you!

If You’re Waiting On God, You Won’t Be Sorry! (Psalm 25:3)

Patient Endurance Is What You Need Now, so that you will continue to do God's will. Then you will receive all that He has promised! (Hebrews 10:36) Waiting for God’s timing is never wasted time, it’s important to strengthen us and mature our faith! (Philippians 4:13) Those who seek the LORD know that God’s resources for us are unlimited! (Ephesians 3:20)  The scripture tells us, “after you have done what God wants you to do, you can receive all He has promised you!” (Hebrews 10:36) Not some, but all! If you wait on God, don’t quit, don’t run away from the problem, pace yourself—you will receive what God promised in abundance physically, financially, relationally, emotionally, according to His perfect will! (Isaiah 40:31, Galatians 6:9) I encourage you while waiting, to remain positive, keep your expectations high and let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions louder than your words! (James 2:14)

“I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future!” (Jeremiah 29:11) “I am the LORD! If I say it, it will happen. There will be no more delays!”(Ezekiel 12:25) ~ God

Blessed Is The One Who Trusts In The LORD, Whose Confidence Is In Him! (Jeremiah 17:7 NIV)

Jeremiah 17:8 goes on to say, “They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green and they never stop producing fruit.” When the heat of battle or impossible circumstances arise, even a child of God can easily become tempted to be worried. Trusting God doesn’t prevent us from feeling discomfort or being uncomfortable in a situation; however it does allow us to be placed in a position where we seek the Lord’s presence, provisions, guidance and promises. There we find—there is none greater than our Lord! (1 Samuel 2:2) With one spoken word—God can instantly align all! (Genesis 1) God has conquered all and rules over all, for all eternity! (John 16:33) You can trust God has everything under control and He will work it out for your good! (Romans 8:28) I encourage you to pray without ceasing and continue seeking His Kingdom, no matter how you feel—God is able to make every grace overflow to you, so that in every way you will always having everything you need and excel in every good work! (2 Corinthians 9:8 HCSB)

“Never worry about anything, but in every situation let Me know what you need in prayers and requests while giving thanks. Then My peace, which goes beyond anything you can imagine, will guard your thoughts and emotions!” (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, just as You have never failed those who trusted in You in past generations, I know You will not fail me. I choose to trust You, to believe in Your Word and act upon it, no matter how I feel, because You promise a good result. (Romans 8:28) I humbly pray, in Jesus' Name, Amen. Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you are extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes! Have a great day! In His service, Jacob...

Visions / Dreams Delayed Does Not Mean Denial!

The Vision Will Still Happen At The Appointed Time! It hurries toward its goal. It won't be a lie. If it's delayed, wait for it. It will certainly happen. It Won't Be Late!” (Habakkuk 2:3) Ecclesiastes 5:3 teaches us, “A dream comes with much business and painful effort.” In pursuit of our dreams, we can expect it can become more costly, uncomfortable and we’ll experience pain and delay. You may experience delayed healing, before healing, financial difficulty, before abundance, loneliness, before happily married, renting longer than expected, before owning your own home, however faithfulness starts small. (Matthew 25:21) Just because things aren’t exactly as you desire them to be at this moment or everything hasn’t unfolded as you would have desired—doesn’t mean God Almighty isn’t able to reach down and work through broken and imperfect vessels like us! (Jeremiah 18:6, Matthew 9:17) We’re God’s workmanship and before God built the dream, He built the dreamer. (Ephesians 2:10, Jeremiah 1:5) There’s more God wants to do through you for His glory greater than anything you’ve experienced so far! I encourage you to go through the hard part, whether it’s one minute or one year, the waiting room or the delivery room, Those Who Put Their Trust In God, Will Not Be Ashamed! (Psalm 25:3)

“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for! (Jeremiah 29:11) “I am the LORD! If I say it, it will happen. There will be no more delays!” (Ezekiel 12:25) ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: LORD, please grow my desire to please You and nurture my dreams that honor You! I ask when my heart grows weary, place within me the determination to press on and focus on Your greatness until my dream becomes reality! I humbly pray, in Jesus' name, amen. Have a great day and a great week! Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you are extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes! In His service, Jacob...

Keep Looking Up & Never Give Up! (Hebrews 12:2, Galatians 6:9)

All Of Your Help Comes From The LordThe Maker Of Heaven And Earth! (Psalm 121:1-2) It’s easy to allow feelings to take control of our lives, when life is hard, when we’re weary and we feel like we’re in a valley. During those moments, we must always remember we have promises from God that doesn’t change like the weather. Promises that are true no matter how we feel, no matter what we’re experiencing, no matter the struggle we face—God is our place of safety! He gives us strength! He is always there to help us in times of trouble! (Psalm 46:1) If we’re walking by faith and resting in the promises of God, satan can’t easily distract us. We remain confident in what God has promised—He is able! (Romans 4:21) We’re not failures, we’re never quitters—we’re victors, trophies of God’s grace, set on display as a fragrant and an everyday reminder to satan of God's goodness! (2 Corinthians 2:14) I encourage you to remain confident in God who has begun a good work within you—He will continue His work, until it’s finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns! (Psalm 100:3, Philippians 1:6, Hebrews 12:2)

"Pray all the time and never give up!" "I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake or let you down! (Luke 18:1, Hebrews 13:5)

Pray This Prayer With Me: Father, thank You graciously for the plans You have for my future—a task only You could accomplish. (Jeremiah 1:5, Jeremiah 29:11) As I live a life of faith each day and my purpose for living—let every step I make be to Your glory. I humbly pray, in Jesus' name, amen… Have a great day and a great weekend! Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you are extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes! In His service, Jacob...

Words Kill, Words Give Life; They're Either Poison Or Fruitful—You Choose! (Proverbs 18:21 MSG)

There is power in you to speak those things that be not as though they were—the power of the Holy Spirit! (John 14:15-17) In Romans 4:17 ISV, God demonstrates His faith when He calls into existence things that don't yet exist. God is so powerful that He says things are so, before there is physical proof that they are so. (2 Corinthians 5:7 NLT) As He did at creation, in Genesis the 1st chapter, God spoke everything into existence and then it was so. We do not have to give in to circumstances around us, because God has given us the power to create with faith-filled words. (Proverbs 18:20, Mark 11:23) One may ask, “What if I start speaking and nothing happens?” My answer—question is: “What if speak by faith and it does happen?” What if you started speaking, “By His strips I am healed—Isaiah 53:5,” and you and those around you become healed? What if you started speaking, “My virtuous woman or my Boaz is on the way—Proverbs 31:10-31, Ruth Chapters 2-4,” and you find yourself standing at an altar or walking down an aisle? What if you started speaking, “My God shall supply all my needs—Philippians 4:19,” and all of your needs are met in abundance? Faith is believing the Word of God and acting on it, regardless of how we feel, regardless of what we see—we believe! I encourage you to meditate and speak the Word of God into your existence and experience what God is able to do far more abundantly above all you can ask or think, according to His power at work within you! (Ephesians 3:20)

"I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Nothing is too hard for Me!” (Jeremiah 32:27)  ~ God

Pray This Prayer With Me: LORD, I thank You for being an ever-present God, an almighty God, an everlasting God and a forever faithful God. I ask You to help me continually believe You for greater things in my life beyond what my human limitations can comprehend, so I may prosper and succeed! I humbly pray, in Jesus' name, amen… Have a great day! Never forget, in all circumstances, God loves you and you’re extremely valuable and important in God’s eyes! In His service, Jacob...
