For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. –Jer 29:11-14 (NIV)
His children will be mighty in the land;
the generation of the upright will be blessed. …
Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,
for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man.
–Ps 112:2-4 (NIV)
‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty. –Zech 4:6 (NIV)
For Young Christians (Also for parents, grandparents, pastors and youth leaders):
There is popular message being disseminated to the youth in America today that you will not have a future as great as your parents but must be prepared to settle for less. This thought comes from the pit of hell and should be cast off since it is the intention of the enemy.
But your Father in Heaven has plans for you to proper you and give you hope and a supernatural destiny in the future. It is the intention of the Lord that you become even closer to Him than your parents and miracles and the ‘supernatural’ become a natural part of your daily life. In the past, work and occupations were considered as separate from ones spiritual life and ministry but no more. They are to be lived as one and the same.
You will not be limited by the might of the US economy nor by the power of the US military but through the Spirit you will receive vision, direction, blessing and an open door for the future. You are destined to be mighty in the land and your light will shine forth in the darkness.
