Salvation Sunday: You're My People

This reading really got me today. Really love the verses in Jeremiah. Jeremiah 29:11 speaks that God knows the thoughts He has for us. He knows the plans for our lives. He knows what is supposed to happen in our lives. He says that He knows the plans. The plans that He has for our lives is a prosperous plan. The will of God is that all would not perish. God wants us to be successful. He doesn't want us to be in a lifestyle that will cause harm to our lives. The issue is do we trust God to guide us? Do we trust God to lead us through our lives? God knows the beginning and the end. The thing is that God gives us the power of choice. Therefore, if things are not working out the way we thought or not prosperous, then that means it might be us not trusting God!! 

In Jeremiah 30, it says "You will be My people, and I will be your god!!" The way for God to allow us to be successful is for us to trust Him. It's for us to put our trust and faith in God. How do we do this? We do this by seeking God. Israel Houghton sang a song that says "I will search for you and I will find you. I will find you with all my heart." Love that song!!! If you're looking for an answer from God, seek Him. Jeremiah 29:13 says "And ye shall seek me, and find me , when ye shall search for me with all your heart." 

You want something specific? Couple of things to do: 

1) "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33

2) "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." Matthew 7:7-8 

So if you want something, ask God. Seek God for the answers that you are looking for and watch Him take care of you. Remember God said, " And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God." (Jeremiah 30:22). Therefore, if He is our God and we are His people, then we can trust and know that God will take care of us and protect us if we let Him. Let God take care of you. Let Him cover you in all areas of your life. Since we are His people, we know He will protect us. Remember "If God be for us, who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31). Trust God and watch Him see you through. 

Stay blessed!!
