The Plan

I have spent the last few months transitioning from NYC to Birmingham; getting settled into my job, my house, and my church. I have transitioned rather well and I am now somewhat settled into my new location. Now that I am settled, I have found myself wondering what the next step is for Broken Ministries and Me. Being completely unsure I decided to listen to a sermon series that is all about Discovering Your Divine Destiny. One scripture that I heard during this series repeatedly was Jeremiah 29:11 which says "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.

I want everyone reading this to understand that God has a plan for your life. It is a plan that is filled with hope and prosperity, not hurt and destruction. God has a great plan for each and everyone of us, regardless of where you've been or what you've done or how bad you feel like you've messed up. His mercies are new every morning and He has a plan for you greater then any plan you could develop on your own. The first step of the plan is to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and to be born again.

Psalm 139:16 says your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. God isn't making the plan up as you go along. He already has it.

Jeremiah 33:3 says "Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come." He is waiting for you to ask Him so that He can reveal to you the secrets that He has for your life. The things that He wants to do in you and through you. The places that he wants to take you and the things He wants you to accomplish.

Like I said earlier, I don't know what my next step is but I know that God has a plan for me and that He will tell me if I ask Him. This week I am going to start praying the plan out. I don't just want to know the next major step is. I want to know what His plan is for me daily. What does He want me to do today? Each day and each step is vital to the big picture. You don't wake up one day to a newly built house. You have a blueprint that is followed day by day and each step in that blueprint is vital for the house to be built correctly and on a solid foundation. I want my life and my ministry to be built correctly and on a solid foundation. I want to live out His plan everyday of my life. I want to be able to say I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. I want to hear God say "Well Done"!

I want to encourage you today; whatever you are facing remember that God has a plan for you and it is a plan for a hope and a future, a plan to prosper you and not to harm you. Spend some time with your Daddy God and ask Him about it so that He can tell you about it.

Much Love,
