Wisdom Series Pt.1

The BIG message—GOD has a plan; if you are wondering, SD, what does that have to do with me or how I live my life? Well, I am happy to answer that for you. As I have shared in earlier blog posts, when we seek God’s wisdom for direction and instruction, the outcome is always ‘good.’ Simply put, those who sought His wisdom received His best for their lives. 

Jeremiah 29:11 Modern English Version says, “For I know the plans that I have for you, says the Lord, plans for peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Now this is a common theme throughout the Holy Bible.

Only Believe – S3-DE4

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Hebrews 11:6 (NIV), says: 

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” 

Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)

Proverbs 3:5-6, NLT 

Devotional 

We go through phases in life where trust is required to move forward. However, trusting can be difficult. Imagine that someone is asking you to jump out of a plane for the first time. And, you don’t know if the parachute will come out or where you will land.

It can be a pressing task trying to trust when you aren’t certain of what is ahead. Unquestionably, if we knew the future it would be great, however, knowing it doesn’t require faith.   

God requires us to take a leap of faith! When we trust God, we are saying to HIM that we have faith in HIS plan, not ours. It’s not always clear what that plan is but the Word of God tells us, 

“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” Jeremiah 29:11, MSG
