Where does your finish line create a starting point?
What is real prosperity?
What hopes does the God of Love have for you?
“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
Is it possible that real prosperity is only found on a bended knee and a humbled heart?
Could it be that “hope and a future” lies in an understanding that I am loved, safe, protected and cherished by The God of Love?
The thing about Grace is that the finish line of accepting Christ is the starting point of growth through being focused on Love- Not Law. Love is all about growth and becoming a blessing by learning to Love others. The law is all about doing and our effort which puts the spot light on us Not on others and Not on Love!
Yes He has plans for you and for me and Yes those plans are to prosper but prosper in His way which is Grace-Fully by learning from each and every moment how to be like the World’s Greatest Lover of All Times- Jesus!
The more you get your eyes off of your doing and see His already done action of Love the more you will realize that Hope is not built on effort or doing but rather its built on trust and faith that He knows what He is doing and He knows where you are right at this very second.
Here is a meditation for you. Find a time and a place where you probably won’t be disturbed. Maybe before you get up and while you are lying in bed or before you fall asleep. Take several deep relaxing breaths and relax your jaw. As you practice this get a picture of Jesus holding your hand and guiding you into a beautiful place of peace and rest and love. As you get this picture do this:
Breathe in and say:
“God has Love”
Breathe out and say:
“Plans for me”
Practice this until you until you are smiling because you know God has a wonderful plan for you this day!!
Don’t Worry- Be Grace-Full!!
