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
Do you get excited when you think about all of the wonderful things God has in store for your future?
I know I certainly do. In fact, at this time in my life I am extra excited.
You see, in 35 days I’ll be celebrating my 35th birthday. (wo-hoo :))
I’m doing my little happy dance here because as great as my 34th year has been, I know God has even greater things to come!
So, over the next 35 days I’m preparing myself for the increased prosperity that’s coming my way. I’ll write down the visions God has given me. I’ll examine the resources I’l need. I’ll look at what’s worked well in the past and what I need to improve on. This time is very important for me and I don’t take it for granted.
Why? Because over the past 34 years (with mush trial and error) I’ve learned that prosperous living isn’t something that just happens. There’s some work you have to do to get ready for it.
Take a look at Jeremiah 29:11 – God plans for us to prosper. This scripture tells me that prospering in life is not accidental or haphazard. It doesn’t just happen. Prosperous living requires more than just wishing or intentions. It requires preparation and planning.
Oftentimes we get so caught up in the end result that we rush right in and fail to make proper preparation to ensure our success. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying – “if you fail to plan, plan to fail.”
Today, I’m challenging you to have a purposeful approach to your prosperity. Don’t just wish for it – plan for it!
