“ For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to  give you a future and a hope”. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Today’s scripture is a well-cited verse, especially when we look at what God has already decreed for us. Therefore, do not be anxious or afraid. Although our life is dependent on God, we do have a role to play as humans. Your role is to have faith in God and His word!

However, it is sad to note how in recent times, people are continuously displaced by economic recession, ignorance, poverty, diseases and terror attacks. These are painful moments that have impacted strongly on our confidence to live a peaceful and harmonious life in line with the purpose and plan of God. Nevertheless, God’s word is not in vain. He will surely do as promised, but we need to look beyond these bad moments and see a fulfilment of God’s promises in our lives.

God wants to fulfil His promises to you today but He needs you to agree with Him on that. To agree with God is to forget your present pains and confusion and focus on God as you work to resolve these problems.

The solution to our individual and collective problems lies with us, but we can only know it, or have a revelation of that when we are closely bonded with God.  Therefore, focusing on God gives you the abilities to see quickly through the veil of times to behold what we have to do to solve problems.   

When you believe in God’s word, and confess the word of God by faith, God speaks over your life and a change happens. Just like darkness rolls away to bring the morning, so will God untie you from the present confusion, pains and anxiety and move you to a new level of fulfilment and spiritual empowerment.

God has already spoken concerning His good plans for us; we, therefore, must make efforts to align with His word or promises by faith. When you align with God’s promises, He links you up with solutions to your problems and you begin to experience His favour and goodness.

Beloved, starting from today, focus on God as you work to resolve issues of life. He will bless your work and realigns you with His unfailing promises and love. He has already spoken concerning His plans for you. God’s word is not in vain!


Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I receive your word today by the power of the Holy Spirit. By your word, I am set free from my present limitations. I decree and declare breakthrough and healing to all areas of my life and I am set free from every emotional and psychological trauma. By thy Spirit, I cancel every sorrow, shame and reproach from my life NOW. I am ushered right now into a new level of material and spiritual empowerment. From this moment onwards, every spiritual and physical dynamic of my life is changed for good. Thank you, Father, Amen.
