Today's Daily Devotional

“I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

04/17/09 God wants you to prosper. Do you find this difficult to believe at times? Are you confusing your idea of prosperity with His? What comes to mind when you think of how you’d like to prosper? Making money? Having lots of stuff? Living in the biggest house on the block? Driving the best car? Donating lots of money to lots of charities? Now take a moment to think of it from God’s perspective. What do you think He means by prosper? He wants you to be saved, for sure. He wants you to grow and become like His Son, Jesus Christ. He wants you to love Him. He wants you to love your neighbor. Those things will make you complete. Those things will bring you peace. Those things will make you prosperous.
