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.”
That was the scripture I chose to focus on. Then, a prophet mentioned it via a Periscope video, and he wasn’t particularly talking to me. As the prophet proceeded, he mentioned Deuteronomy 1:11, which speaks about God increasing you a thousand times and blessing you as He has promised. This scripture seemed relevant; however, it was even more poignant for me because I’d been seeing 111 excessively within the preceding days. He referenced Exodus 34 and God entering a covenant and enlarging MY territory. Although I was only watching the prophet’s video, wasn’t communicating with him, and he wasn’t particularly talking to me, I KNOW that message was for ME! How do I know? Well, I sowed a seed the previous day to enter into covenant with God for Him to increase my territory!
The prophet proceeded to say what Numbers 23:19 informs us: God is not a man that He should lie and once God tells me something, it means it’s already done. As I was listening, I was inclined to check my email and what appeared before me in the commencement of an inspirational email was Psalm 139:16, “All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Confirmation! God was informing and confirming that He’d already approved and written plans in my life, even before I was born into the physical realm.
What’s even more exciting is the literature in the email! It stated, “He’s written out plans for your good, plans to prosper you, plans for peace.” Wow! It’s as if Jeremiah 29:11 and Psalm 139:16 were combined into one sentence. Are you following me so far?
1. I chose to study Jeremiah 29:11 that day.
2. The prophet mentioned Jeremiah 29:11.
3. The prophet said when God tells you something, it’s already done.
4. Then, I read Psalm 139:16 almost the same time the prophet was saying what the Psalm states.
5. Not only did the email reference 139:16 and how my days were already written, but it also had literature regarding what Jeremiah 29:11 states (although Jeremiah wasn’t particularly referenced or written verbatim in the email).
6. And let’s not forget the three ones (111),
7. Or how the prophet just so happened to mention the covenant and territory increasing! (I’d entered a covenant regarding increase the prior day.)
And guess what? There’s more! As I was sitting at my desk with email still open on my laptop, and the Periscope broadcast still going, I glanced over to my right. On the right side of my desk, is where my Bible typically remains open on the last page that I was reading. It was still on Jeremiah and as I glanced over, my eyes met Jeremiah 29:10.
I’d already been feeling that once I finish THIS BOOK, God was going to move in an unthinkable way! As my eyes met Jeremiah 29:10, I felt something in my spirit and it seemed that I read this verse differently from prior times. As I saw, “When 70…are completed…I will visit you and keep my promise!” I just KNEW that God was confirming that when I finish this book (70…, you’re currently reading), He would fulfill what He’d already promised me.
And guess what? There’s even more! As you can see, there was definitely an overflow of God’s glory coming through so I started writing all that was occurring. As I was writing, the prophet stated, “God told me, ‘If you do this, I’ll do that.’ OMG! Seriously?! I’d just read and felt God saying that if and when I finish this book, “70…” God will move and then the prophet confirmed it! These things were happening almost simultaneously! Had I not already known God as I did at that moment, surely I would’ve thought I was going insane.
Note: When God fills your cup, you CANNOT contain it. He sends an overflow that is truly over the top and unfathomable!
Talk to God: He talks back!
