Power Verse # 4 - Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Jeremiah 29:11

God never intended any harm to befall His children. In fact, it is His good pleasure to prosper us in all that we do in accordance with His will. In everything that we will encounter in life, how gloomy some of them maybe, God always gives us hope for a better future. Remember, Jesus Christ came that we might have life, and have it to the full. If we position ourselves to become channels of God's blessings to our fellowmen by obeying His will and by walking in His ways, then God will pour down upon us showers of blessings that we can never contain. It is best to seek God's purpose for our lives that in so doing, we will align our lives to God's purposes thereby assuring us of continuous blessings and love from God.

Power Verse # 3 - Romans 8:28

"All things work together for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose."
(Romans 8:28)

This verse affirms the goodness of God to all who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior, and who have surrendered their lives to Him. They are called children of God and co-heirs with Jesus Christ in the kingdom of heaven. But this does not mean that God's children will be immune from trials and persecutions. As their characters are molded to suit after the pattern of God's perfect vessels, to do good works and glorify His name, the children of God will undergo sufferings, trials and persecutions. These are not punishments but a process of purification and molding of character. And God gave man this verse that reassures that whatever happens in the lives of His children, these are all good and their purposes will be revealed in God's perfect time when God's children are finally transformed from glory to glory until they reached the whole measure of the fullness of Jesus Christ. This is a verse of tender reassurance of God's love, mercy and grace to His beloved children.

Power Verse # 2 - Philippians 4:19

"But my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:19)

This verse virtually unlocks the portals of heaven so that God's abundant blessings and provisions should rain down upon us. This verse affirms our total dependence on God for everything that we need in life, whether spiritual, physical or even financial. We should not worry or fear the uncertainty of the future for God said, "let tomorrow worry about itself." He taught us to pray for our daily bread because He wants us to always focus on the source of all blessings and provisions in life. This verse is also a very powerful prayer that can be addressed to the Father, in the name of Jesus Christ and through the power of the Holy Spirit. We should pray it with a humble and expectant heart, fully believing that God will always keep His promises and answer all our prayers.
