1. You will not be stranded spiritually, for the angel’s of The Lord are encamped around you, Amen.
2. You will only shed tears of joy.
“The God of all comfort keeps watch over your weeping.”
3. Sickness will be far from you:
The LORD will keep you free from every disease. He will not inflict on you the horrible diseases you knew in Egypt, but he will inflict them on all who hate you.
4. The Good we’ve been looking for, will the found, Amen.
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of The LORD for all ways, Amen.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
5. When you call one helper, 100 will answer.
“The angel(s) of The Lord encamp around those who fear The Lord.”
But as in all ways it is brimming! Get ready to spill forth.
The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.
Psalm 34:7-9 King James Version (KJV)
6. Goodness will follow you naturally (with Mercy) Amen.
6. Awesomeness will follow you naturally, Amen
7. Good tidings are yours, Amen.
“Glad-tidings” occurs in the King James Version in the translation of the verb euaggelizo, “to tell good news” (Luke 1:19; 8:1; Acts 13:32; Romans 10:15); in each instance, except the last, the Revised Version (British and American) translations “good tidings.” The verb is also very frequently translated in the King James Version “to preach the gospel,” the original meaning of which word (god-spell) is “good news or tidings” (Matthew 11:5; Luke 4:18; 7:22; 9:6; 20:1); in the first two passages the Revised Version (British and American) substitutes “good tidings,” margin “the gospel”; in the last two instances “the gospel” is retained, the American Revised Version, margin “good tidings”–the gospel or good tidings being the announcement of the near approach of the promised, long-looked-for salvation and kingdom of God; in Romans 1:15; 15:20; 1 Corinthians 1:17, etc., the King James Version has “the gospel,” namely, that of God’s reconciliation of the world to Himself in Christ; the Revised Version (British and American) in some passages substitutes “good tidings,” or gives this in the margin; but “glad tidings” stands only in Romans 10:15.
Y’all, this is a collection. Meditate, claim AND know, Amen.
8. You will not ‘bury’ Your loved ones, without the appropriate fullness of life as promised
Yes, we will be ‘temporarily’ separated but for a short while, to and with them no time has elapsed, as we have shared ‘time’ is a Earthly thing! For to further explain this it was written “A thousandis years is as a day and a day as a thousand years in The presence of God our Father, Amen.
I was going to ple short in parentheses. There is no ‘time’ after life, Just being.
Like many Christians, in hard times I have found myself considering Jeremiah 29:11, which says “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.” It is reassuring in the midst of trouble to know that God has a plan for us, and that it is a good one. But while these words written specifically to the exiled nation of Israel are not untrue regarding the modern day Christ-follower, stripped of their original context they can be confusing and unhelpful.
Furthermore, there is a danger in holding on to our own idea of what the Lord’s plans for our welfare, future, and hope include. Instead, we need to let the whole of God’s Word define his planned goodness to us. Our Lord has been very clear in the New Testament about his intentions regarding those who have come to faith in his Son. And as we continue to place our trust in him, we begin to see that these plans are deeper and more satisfying than even our own ideas about “the good life.”
The following 20 verses have helped me gain a clearer grasp of how God plans to provide for my welfare, future, and hope. They have changed my perspective on my circumstances and helped me to grow in gratitude for Jesus and the gospel of salvation that, by faith, has made these promises mine.
God’s Plan Regarding Your Welfare
1. The Lord will provide for your daily needs like food, housing, and clothing.
Therefore, do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. (Matthew 6:31-33)
2. The Lord will provide you with the help of the Holy Spirit, so you are never alone.
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. (John 14:26)
3. The Lord will provide you the way out of temptation.
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. (1 Corinthians 10:13)
4. The Lord will provide you with his joy.
These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. (John 15:11)
5. The Lord will provide you with what you need to do his will.
Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. (Hebrews 13:20-21)
6. The Lord will provide you with spiritual strength.
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father…that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with powerthrough his Spirit in your inner being. (Ephesians 3:14,16)
7. The Lord will provide you with eternal protection.
So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; What can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:6)
8. The Lord will provide you with great blessings that will correspond with things lost.
Jesus said, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life.” (Mark 10:29-30)
9. The Lord will provide you with a chosen role in his body, the church.
But as it is, God arranged all the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. (1 Corinthians 12:18)
God’s Plan Regarding Your Future
10. The Lord promises that one day you will be with him.
In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. (John 14:2-3)
11. The Lord promises that one day his work in you will be complete.
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:6)
12. The Lord promises that one day you will be like Jesus.
Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. (1 John 3:2)
13. The Lord promises that one day you will see his face.
No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever. (Revelation 22:3-5)
14. The Lord promises that one day he will wipe away every tear from your eyes.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. (Revelation 21:4)
God’s Plan Regarding Your Hope
15. The Lord gives you hope that you have a rich inheritance.
I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints. (Ephesians 1:16-18)
16. The Lord gives you hope that the promise of the gospel is securely laid up for you in heaven.
We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints, because of the hope laid up for you in heaven. Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel. (Colossians 1:3-5)
17. The Lord gives you hope that death is not the end.
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. (1 Thessalonians 4:13)
18. The Lord gives you hope that you are not destined for wrath, but salvation.
But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. (1 Thessalonians 5:8-10)
19. The Lord gives hope that you have been born again to a new life, one day to be revealed.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you. (1 Peter 1:3-4)
20. The Lord gives hope that you have seen God manifest in Jesus.
He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. (1 Peter 1:21)
Everything We Need
Does this list encourage you? Indeed, in Christ, God has given us everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). And he will continue to provide for us richly until the day we see him face to face in glory. Because we have been promised abundant and eternal life that is secure in heaven waiting for us, we can be confident that nothing that could bring us lasting eternal harm can touch us.
Personally, I know his agenda concerning me is good because he sent Jesus to earth to live and die and rise again so that, by faith, I might know him and be with him forever. While my circumstances may be painful, he is working out his desire that I grow up into the image of his Son, put off my old sinful destructive ways, and find my satisfaction in him above all else. The evil I see prevailing in my own life is an opportunity to hold tighter to these promises, longing for the day when all oEnemiesf God’s good plans will come to their righteous fulfillment.
In Jesus, our God has provided a way for us to live the life we were created for: to glorify and enjoy him forever. And that, my friends, is his truly good plan for our lives.
Wow! Y’all this was started to be a quick ‘list’ of declarations. I see clearly now why The Word is The Word. It is ALL ONE, Amen.
Our list has become an “I had best go read it myself!”
9. Enemies pursuing you, will miss their target
The Bible is a book about God, not the devil.
The Bible doesn’t answer every question about warfare, nor does it grant us permission to focus our attention on the devil. Any approach to warfare that magnifies the devil’s power does not reflect biblical spiritual warfare.
Satan and his forces are real.
Some argue the concept of Satan and demons is only a first-century attempt to explain evil, but the Bible reveals them as real, supernatural beings who oppose God and his people. Our attempts to explain away these forces do not negate their reality.
Satan, however, is not our biggest problem.
We face three enemies: the world, our flesh, and the devil (Eph. 2:1–3). In some cases, the three are so interwoven that it’s difficult to tell them apart. Our primary problem is not Satan, though. We are our biggest issue.
God reigns, even over the enemy.
There is strife between human beings and the serpent because God put that conflict there (Gen. 3:15). That strife would lead to the cross, where the death of Jesus would break the back of the powers (Col. 2:15). Now, God sovereignly uses the spiritual battles to make us the followers he wants us to be.
The enemy we face is a defeated foe.
Satan has been bound through God’s judgment and through the cross; is being bound through the preaching of the gospel; and will be bound for eternity. We do genuinely wrestle against principalities and powers (Eph. 6:12), but the devil and his forces have never been outside of God’s control.
Warfare is the devil’s attempt to deceive and divide believers.
Since the Fall in the Garden of Eden, the devil has tried to bait us with false teaching, lure us into sin, and turn us against each other. He does this to keep us from glorifying God and doing the Great Commission. He seeks to devour us (1 Pet. 5:8) so we can no longer be a light to a lost world. The summary I commonly use is that the enemy wants us to mess up (fall into sin), give up (get discouraged), get puffed up (live in arrogance), split up (divide), or shut up (quit evangelizing).
But we are not on the defensive in this battle.
Yes, we’re to stand against Satan (Eph. 6:11, 13, 14), but standing is not simply waiting and deflecting the arrows of the enemy. Even Paul, who called the Ephesians to stand, sought their prayer so he would keep proclaiming the gospel boldly even when he was imprisoned (Eph. 6:18–20). His own “standing” meant that he would faithfully evangelize even if the war cost him his life. We put on the full armor of God not so we can defend ourselves, but so we can march into the enemy’s kingdom to do the work of the Great Commission.
Satan battles against us because we are God’s witnesses to the world.
When the apostle Paul described lostness, he often framed it in terms of spiritual warfare. Non-believers follow the prince of the air (Eph. 2:2). They are blinded by the god of this world (2 Cor. 4:3–4), bound in darkness (Col. 1:13, Acts 26:18), and caught in Satan’s snare (2 Tim. 2:25–26). His goal is to keep us from proclaiming and living out the gospel that sets people free.
The offensive nature of this battle demands evangelism & discipleship.
Evangelism requires intentionally taking the light into the darkness. Discipleship then requires teaching others to understand their position in Christ and to put on the full armor of God. If we don’t evangelize, non-believers remain in Satan’s kingdom. If we don’t disciple, we send believers into the war unarmed. Both can result in tragedy.
One of Satan’s subtle strategies is to entice us to operate in our own ability.
David the shepherd boy took on the giant in faith and dependence, knowing that the battle was not his in the first place but rather the Lord’s (1 Sam. 17:47). When he became the king, though, David sought to know just how mighty his own forces were as he leaned more on himself than on God (1 Chron. 21:1–5). The enemy delights when we go there—when we’re much more like David the king than David the shepherd boy.
The very task of missions places us in the sights of the enemy. Because we are seeking to reach non-believers, develop strong disciples, and plant healthy congregations that plant more congregations—all of which means that we are offensively engaging the enemy’s territory—we can know that the enemy will fight back.
We needn’t fear, however. In the power of God, we must simply love Christ and live and speak for him in such a way that God is glorified and an already-defeated Satan is threatened (Acts 19:11–16).
9. Enemies pursuing you, will miss their target.
‘Nuff said above.
10. All your projects will be completed.
“Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means.”
2 Corinthians 8:11
“Being confident of this very thing, that He Who hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the Day of Jesus Christ.”
Y’all, I will apologize for the ‘brevity’ here, but it is AND was necessary:
Are ye so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
11. You will not have enough space because of “too much/so many” blessings.
“Then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.”
There are conditions though!
“Do not forget My teaching,
but keep my commands in your heart,
for they will prolong your life many years!
Uh! We shared this above. Yes! I admit IF we knew exactly what awaits….boy! Catching a peek would be impossible to ‘wait!’ BUT do you have The Lord on your side and The Spirit within you?
Forget not: “Love is patient…”
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.”
God will bring you peace and prosperity, Amen.
Let Love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favor and a good name in The Sight of God and man.
What must we do? Another condition!
Trust in The Lord with all your heart!
We must lean not on our own understanding; Read, study and as we used to say in high school “Cram” your spirit with The Word! Stuff it in, let it spill over (like your barns, Amen)
In all your ways submit to God,
and He will make your paths straight (gives you insight! Yes, success, but How? Overflowing barns that cannot hold the plenty?) At times The Word is ‘difficult’ to grasp! Open your spirit, ask for guidance for
“The sky is no limit for God, but it lies beyond your reach. God knows the world of the dead, but you do not know it. God’s greatness is broader than the earth, wider than the sea. If God arrests you and brings you to trial, who is there to stop him? God knows which people are worthless; he sees all their evil deeds. Stupid people will start being wise when wild donkeys are born tame. Put your heart right, Job. Reach out to God. Put away evil and wrong from your home. Then face the world again, firm and courageous. Then all your troubles will fade from your memory, like floods that are past and remembered no more. Your life will be brighter than sunshine at noon, and life’s darkest hours will shine like the dawn. You will live secure and full of hope; God will protect you and give you rest.”
Who created all good upon the Earth? It is hard to grasp. Pluto, Mars, even Jupiter! No grass, Animals, signs of life? Think on this!
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear The Lord in knowing His Persona, it is for YOU to learn! Yes, I used to attend ‘fellowship’/Sunday school/Christian Camps etc. I wanted to be fed, actually ‘needed’ to be fed. Check this out:
“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”
1 Corinthians 13:11 King James Version (KJV)
It goes further “and shun evil”
Persistently avoid, ignore, or reject (someone or something) through antipathy or caution.
“he shunned fashionable society”
synonyms: avoid, evade, eschew, steer clear of, shy away from, fight shy of, keep one’s distance from, give a wide berth to, have nothing to do with;
snub, give someone the cold shoulder, cold-shoulder, ignore, look right through;
reject, rebuff, spurn, ostracize;
informalgive someone the brush-off, freeze out, give someone the bum’s rush, give someone the brush off
“he shunned publicity”
And doing so will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.
The Truth that is in The Word is overbearing! Amen.
Honor The Lord with your wealth,with the firstfruits of all your labors.
Give and it shall be given unto you, sow and you shall reap
It touches my heart: No sowing, no reaping! We all have the same soil, some may be rocky, some sandy, some well fertilized, but use what you have been given! Sow the seed and move over! God gives the increase! Where does rain come from? Sun?
Chil’ I can see so many minds on overdrive: Green houses, crop grow houses, agricultural technology…!
But Who, What do we ‘move’ to imitate?
12. you will understand God’s word like never before.
We touched on this above! Ask and recieve new understanding. A single verse can reveal so much in different ways!
Does scripture have multiple meanings? Is there ever an instance where one passage can have more than one meaning?
Scripture only has one objective meaning, and this is necessary for communication to be possible.
The location of meaning
An author can write a passage to have multiple meanings but it is impossible for the interpreter to uncover these multiple meanings. The only person that can uncover a multiple meaning of the passage is the author. For communication to be possible there can only be one meaning. Ultimately the objective meaning of the Bible is in the mind of God, who uses human authors to write an objective book. The meaning we want to uncover is not beneath the scripture (in the mystics mind), behind the scripture (in authors unexpressed intention), or beyond the scripture (in God’s mind) but IN the scriptural writings itself. We need to look at the Bible scriptures themselves to find out meaning
The Source of meaning
The source of meaning is not the imagination of the reader, for this would mean contradictory interpretations could both be correct. This would violate the law of non contradiction. Meaning is not determined by the reader’s imagination but rather inherent in the writing of the author.
Meaning needs to be extracted by proper tools, and the tools used for extracting meaning from the Bible are known as Biblical hermeneutics. We need to use the proper method in order to find the objective meaning. The proper hermeneutic is the literal grammatical method. This is the approach of finding what the scripture means at face value.
The Nature of language demands one meaning
The nature of language is to communicate, and in order for communication to be possible language must have a singular objective meaning. If someone is not interested in communicating something they can write poetry in order to inspire emotion. If interpretation is down to emotion then the interpretation is left to the reader. But God gave the Bible in order to communicate a message to mankind, and this message isn’t found in the emotion of the reader but the writings of the author.
In order to communicate an author puts words which when viewed together project meaning. This meaning then can be extracted by all readers who follow normal rules of communication. The same is true of God; for If God wants to objectively communicate to mankind then all passages of scripture would have one meaning for the reader to uncover. God does want to objectively communicate with mankind, and therefore all scripture has one meaning the reader should seek to extract.
One meaning but multiple significance
The meaning of the original recipients, is the same meaning we should extract from the text hundreds of years later. However despite scripture having one meaning it can have multiple significances or applications; this is true regarding prophecy especially concerning Christ. For example Psalm 22 is referring to David but the significance of the passage refers to Christ on the cross.
13. Angels will attend to you 365 days.
Mmmhmm; 366 days in a leap year (smile)
Angel: An angel is a messenger of God, characterized as having human form with wings and a halo. … It is used in The Bible to denote God’s attendants, with angels often depicted as being guardians of humans, an idea also found in ancient Asian cultures as well. We are ONE of the same seed, Amen. Each with their purpose!
14. Your ‘prayer life’/talking with God will be blessed. A goal?
“And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend.”
Oh Chil’! This is deep! Mind you WARNING! Being Mortal we can still go awry.
Have you ever had a friend/sibling that rubbed you the wrong way?
16. This season, your new ‘name’ will be ‘favored’, Amen. Just remember to share.
Stinginess? No worries! More goes out ‘CAREFULLY’ in faith, more comes in by The Awesome grace of God.
Common Christian teaching is that grace isunmerited mercy (favor) that God gave to humanity by sending his Son, Jesus Christ, to die on a cross, thus securing man’s eternal salvation from sin.
17. This season, the body of Christ shall see your gifts impact so many positively, Amen.
18. Peace shall be our portion, Amen.
19. Peace, joy, satisfaction, wholeness and good news shall envelop you and your family, Amem
