Everyone has dreams, relationships, businesses, money, and things we have a plan for. If we release it over to God, God will increase it.
This week, I had a plan for a business idea that I was excited about. I had my idea of what I could do to make things happen. There is a saying, “if you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans. The previous blog, “fast and pray, God will show you the way,” is what happened to me this week. On the last day of fasting and praying, I got my answer concerning my business idea. It was no accident that I stumbled upon a video on the internet of a female gospel singer with a clothing line. She stated that she had her plans and knew some people in the fashion industry to call to get the business going. She said God spoke to her, saying not to call anyone. Just trust Him to do it, so people will know it was the hand of God. God wants to get glory in every area of our lives. His ways are higher than ours and better than we can imagine. She said God told her to speak and that He will lead her to the right people. She told God aligned her with the right people who licensed her business without a dime out of her pocket. An inner voice spoke to me and said whatever you need, I am! I started praising and magnifying God. I released my idea to God, and now I am at peace knowing God’s got me!
Isaiah 55:1-3;8-9 Amplified Version.
55 “Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no money come, buy grain and eat. Come, buy wine and milk Without money and cost [accept it as a gift from God]. 2 “Why do you spend money for the not bread, and your earnings for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, eat what is good, and let your soul delight in abundance.3 “Incline your ear [to listen] and come to Me; Hear, so that your soul may live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you, according to the faithful mercies [promised and] shown to David.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts higher than your thoughts.
Acknowledge God in everything you do. It is good to have plans but give them to God; His plan will never fail. God wants the best for all of us, just like a parent, lover, or friend very close to us.
Speak the word of God over your relationships, dreams, money, and business. Dispatch angels to do battle on your behalf. Lastly, thank God every day for Him leading, guiding you, and placing the right people across your path. Every perfect gift comes from above. It has been predestined before the foundation of the world. Some people may not see it and will try to discourage you. Do like David going up against Goliath. When his brothers tried to discourage him, he paid them no attention. David kept his eyes on the reward, spoke about what he was going to do, and in the end, defeated the giant. Hold fast to your confession, no matter how it looks. You keep saying it; it will get in your heart, you will start believing it, and faith will come. Once faith comes, then comes the manifestation of it.
Release it; God will increase it!
Prayer: God, I thank you for creating me for a purpose. God, you know the plan you have for me. Plans to prosper me, not to harm me, to give me hope and a future. I release my goals and plans to you. I acknowledge you in all my ways, and God, you direct my paths. You said in your word that the Lord orders the righteous man’s steps. God, I repent for trying to make things happen on my own. I listened to your voice, spent time with you, and eating was good without money because it was free. God, you paid its call through the sacrifice of Jesus. God, I thank you for the journey. In Jesus’ name! Amen.
