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)

BEGIN TO FOLLOW THE LORD’S PLANS

My brothers and sisters, sometimes we feel that life has thrown us a curve ball and every time we swing at the ball we miss. So why are we feeling this way about life itself? We realize that things do not always go according to the way we plan them, and because of our plans we find ourselves getting further and further behind in our financial affairs, in our relationships, in obtaining that job promotion that we have been waiting on for so long, and even without with our spiritual walk with God because we don’t seem to have enough time to pray and study.

The further behind you get the more discourage you become. So what must you do to turn your life around? Let us look at the Scripture here in Jeremiah chapter 29 verse 11. The Lord says, for I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Now in our subject we said to you, “BEGIN TO FOLLOW THE LORD’S PLANS.” You see the problems that you have been experiencing in not being able to achieve success in your life has been because you were following your own plans instead of following the Lord’s plans. You were leaning and depending upon your own understanding instead of leaning and up depending upon the Lord.

The Lord has told you that he has plans to prosper you and not to harm you. The Lord never makes a promise that he does not keep. Not only did the Lord lay out specific plans for you he also laid out a specific time frame in which these plans would bear fruit. However, if you are not willing to follow the Lord’s plans you will always find yourself swing at curve balls and missing them. The Lord went one step further and said, he had plans to give you hope and a future. How much clear could this statement be for you? If you truly want to succeed in this season I suggest to you that you must, “BEGIN TO FOLLOW THE PLANS OF THE LORD!”

      Thank you friend for your response, and yes, as we progress through life that “curve ball” can become an issue if we allow it. May you always find joy and peace in the presence of the Lord. Be blessed.
