For I know the plan I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plan to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
You know the verse above is so true and it is most accurate, despite what the enemy would have you believe. God’s desires only good for His children, God like any good parent want to see His children prosper, He wants His children to achieve and to be the best they can as well as to have the best.
First you must realise that in each of us God the Creator and Father of us all created us as a master piece, special, precious and uniquely in His own image and because of this He desires to see that we make it, He desires to see that we overcome the plot of the evil one who wants to destroy us.
The evil one is jealous he wants to be above God and he thinks the way to achieve this is to destroy God’s masterpiece, you and I. The devil who is an enemy to God and thus an enemy to us thinks if he succeed in destroying us he can then take our position, he thinks he can then gain entry to heaven, a place where he has already been evicted from, a place that he is permanently expel from. The devil our enemy thinks if he gains entry to heaven he can overthrow God and take what rightly belongs to you and me. So you see God’s purpose is to prosper you but the plans of the enemy is to steal what rightly belongs to us, that is why the enemy is trying so hard to keep us in the dark, he does not want you to realise how precious you are, he does not want you to know what goodness the Father have for you and how much the Father loves you.
But I am here to tell you the Father loves you His children and His creation and for that reason He sent his only begotten Son into the world to die for you. His Son dying is all part of the Fathers plan towards you, the plan to prosper you begins with the plan of salvation for all sinners.
This salvation is the forgiveness of sins, a free gift from God through the death of His only begotten Son to you and me. God’s only begotten Son paid the price for the sins of the world with His life, but in order for you to enjoy this gift you must first claim it and in order to do that you must acknowledge to God that you are a sinner. Each and every one of us have sinned and have come short of the glory of God (Roman 3:23) that is the reason why Christ the only begotten Son of God died because we are all sinners through the sin of one man Adam and only the death of a sinless man (Christ) could remove us from the hold sin has over us and place us back on the road to success, where we can prosper and have abundant life.
The Father’s love for you is so strong that He gave up His only begotten Son as a sacrifice in order to get you back to the place where you can prosper and have abundant life. God’s love is so great for you that He does not want to see you perish He desires to have you enjoy eternal life with Him.
All you have to do to receive and accept the plans God has to prosper you is to acknowledge His Son died for you, believe on his Son and confess, confess you are a sinner then confess your sins and know that God is faithful and just to forgive you and me all of our sins no matter how bad our sins are God can and will cleanse us from all unrighteousness as long as we confess.
