As I streamed live to Jenetzen Franklin at Free Chapel in Gainesville, Ga yesterday it’s like God slapped me in the face with these words “Seek Him”. One of my all time favorite scriptures is Jeremiah 29:11-13 but most people stop at verse 12. Verse 13 is of most importance …“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. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
I am so guilty of this… Getting so caught up in the busyness of life that I forget that without God I am nothing! “My only power and success comes from God” 2 Corinthians 3:5. Do we realize that our plans, our businesses, or our goals are not fully reachable without God?
Where do such creative desires come from? God, Who is our Creator! And when God gives you a wide-blue-sky mindset, you’ll never be happy living in a mental birdcage. Are there times when you’ll feel afraid and uncertain about what to do? Yes! Fear and faith are two sides of the same coin, and they’ll always be part of your thinking. But the one you choose is the one that’ll determine your future—and you get to choose!
He only wants 10% of our time and finances… Is that too much to ask?
Choose to SEEK HIM and our Faith will grow much larger than our fear can because we truly realize that it is The God within us enabling us to do what he has called us to do!
