    God's Plan Is So Much Better

    June 29, 2012

    I have taken a break from writing but I’m back. Since June 3, 2012, the Rock has been calling on God to hear us from heaven and send revival. The good news is He has. We can say this because scripture states very clearly that when we seek Him we will find Him. So now we are just waiting for revival to come. We live in a time where everyone has a plan. Men and women alike are coming up with plans so that we can build the kingdom. God gave me the verse in Jeremiah 29:10, This is what the Lord says: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my good promise to bring you back to this place. 11 “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. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.” God has always made it clear to me that He has the plan for me so why look elsewhere. The bible is the plan and it is enough. So we are seeking with all our heart and following God’s plan wholeheartedly. I am amazed at how many people follow man’s plans and then call it God. When you hold up scripture, man’s plan fall short and in many case look nothing alike yet people continue to follow in the wrong direction. I believe it is time to once again be followers of God and then expect immeasurable things to take place among us. We believe that just as the seventy years were up for the Israelites in captivity we too will be released from the power of the evil one and will see the captives set free once again and the New Testament church will stand once again in power. The powerless church will be no more. Right now we have family and friends who have been banished to the distant lands and in exile. God has given us a promise that He will bring them back. So if you family and friends who knew the Lord but have not lived for Him there is hope. “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.”
