Elevated Faith

A Coronavirus Reality

After Boris Johnson the British Prime Minister was admitted to intensive care on Monday night, it made me think about all the dreams and successes of our youth that won’t be fulfilled. What are you doing to bring your dreams to pass today? Are you getting prepared? Do you have clear direction? Are you taking the necessary steps of faith? Accomplishing dreams and success is intentional.

You may not know what steps to take right now, but God has a good plan for your life. If you’ll do your part to seek Him and begin to make plans to succeed before it’s too late, God will guide you. He will direct your steps. He will make dreams come true. You don’t have to vaguely go through life unfocused. God wants to show you His plan. He wants to pour out His blessing, direction and favour on you, and see you living a life of victory.

Today, make plans to succeed, take no thought about tomorrow. Write down your goals. Make time to evaluate where you are in life. Evaluate your finances, your career and your relationships. Don’t go another day, week or month without having a plan for your future. Daily evaluate how you’re spending your time, money and love for family and friends. If you’ll go beyond dreaming and start making plans to succeed, trust God’s promises that He’s going to direct your steps, He will lead you down the path of success and purpose in all areas of your life — beginning today.

“The mind of man plans his way, but the LORD directs his steps.”

(Proverbs 16:9)

Pray With Me

Yahweh, I can’t stop thinking about those lives and loved ones that have been lost, and all those dreams that have gone in this world. Father, help me to see clearly the plan You have for me today and every day. Help me get focused and prioritise my spiritual dreams and purpose. God, I submit every area of my life to You, and trust that You are working behind the scenes for my good. God, after seeing what is happening in this world, I have decided I can’t waste another moment outside of Your will. Order my steps Lord and comfort those that mourn, in Christ’s Name! Amen.

Hi! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I came to check it out.
I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my
followers! Terrific blog and outstanding style and design.

Great article Pastor Ray! This quote comes to mind: ‘Wish for the best but prepare for the worst’ and in times like this, its very important to not give up and lose hope when ‘plans’ have fell through because of this pandemic. I know my younger self would of been devastated but my older self agrees with you. We need to plan for the future but also trust that God has our back and have faith that he will guide us to a brighter future.

My goals these days are very passive, but still powerful. With so much out of my control, I just want to rest in God’s provision and promises. To trust Him in this uncertainty, that He has saved me from sin and death. He will sustain me for His purposes while I have breath. This is the goal these days. Trust Him.
