Igniting Inspiration Week #13 Unbroken Promises: He Will Prosper You

Good Sunday morning, lovely! (Or just Happy Sunday to others in different time zones ; D)

*sighs* Here we go.

Okay so this week, Igniting Inspiration is going to be a bit different.

(don’t worry, it’s a good different.)

Every week for the past 12 weeks, I have always looked forward to the Saturday morning when I can sit at the kitchen table eating pancakes for breakfast, and gather some beautiful quotes, and hilarious MEMES to bring sunshine to the lives of others! And it makes me so very happy seeing how much you all seem to love it, and look forward to it just as much as I do!

But recently I’ve been thinking, and I want to change up what I am doing with Igniting Inspiration. I absolutely love spreading happiness, and hope, and joy to others through amazing (and wonderfully aesthetic) quotes, but I have felt as if it wasn’t truly coming from my own heart, as if I was always just using somebody else’s words. Of course, I am a huge quote person and I love when you find that one quote that literally hits you right in the heart, but when I am showing light to others, I also want it to be through my very own heart, and words.

So, here we are.

You may or may not have noticed that this past week, I haven’t posted anything. Week #13 of Igniting Inspiration was supposed to be last Sunday, but I decided to take a break and reflect on the past 12 weeks of the series before I just jumped right into the next. (Life also got a little crazy, so a break for some time to myself and not having to worry about posting was really nice.) It got me thinking how I really wanted to change the series just a bit!

So, this week I am going to switch it up, and if I find I love it, then I will probably continue doing it this way for the rest of the time!

For Week #13 of Igniting Inspiration, I am going to be spreading encouragement and love from my very own heart through a short Bible study, on one specific topic. This weeks topic is going to be Unbroken Promises: He Will Prosper You. I plan on doing this topic as a series, and for the next few weeks I will do the topic of the unbroken promises of God!

I really felt like I needed to write about this, because I have personally been struggling with doubt, and have had real anxiety about what my future holds recently. To be completely honest I really get scared about these things, and it hurts not knowing the answer to many questions. But I have found great comfort in seeing the promises that God has for me, that he will never break.

As I am digging into these promises, I want to share them with you all, and bada-bing bada-boom! We have our own little group. 😊

I am no preacher. Just a girl who is discovering Jesus, and who wants you to discover him with her.

Oh, did you think I am just gonna completely forget about the quotes, and the MEMES?! Uh-uh, nooooooo sir! Haha, my love for quotes and MEMES shall never fade, so at the end of the post, I will still continue to include some lovely quotes, and hilarious MEMES! xD

(Srsly, what would Igniting Inspiration even BE without the MEMES amiright??)

Let’s go ahead and dive into this weeks promise! And don’t forget to stay till the end for some encouraging quotes, and the amazing MEMES for some laughs to kick off this new week! xD

Alright imma keep the Devo short and sweet for ya, so here we go! 😉

Unbroken Promises: He will Prosper You

Alright, who here has ever worried crazy about their future? … Mkay, anyone here ever felt afraid that their future won’t go as you have planned now? Anyone just been so scared about what they really want but may never get?

No, it’s okay! Be completely honest. Because I am standing right there with you sista.

I have definitely felt really weird about these things before, and still seem to do it all the time! I mean, I already have so many hopes and dreams and things about what my future may look like, and thinking about that makes us feel really good, doesn’t it? We start thinking “Oh God is definitely going to give me a happy life, and all of these amazing things and I will be happy no matter what!”

But then we start to doubt. We feel afraid of the thought that life isn’t going to have everything we want, and dream of. And that’s because it isn’t.

Life won’t have everything we want, and that really does suck but there is another promise God has given us in place of that. Actually, quite a few promises he has given us in place of that!

Just take a look right here at Jeremiah 29:11

“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 a hope and a future.”

In this verse, God is promising us that he has plans for us and he knows exactly what those plans are! He knows every itty bitty detail about what our future will look like, and he is in control of all of it! Our future will most likely look so very different from what we expect it to be, but we just have to remember that God is in all of it, and he does everything for our good. One of my favorite quotes is, “God wrecks your plans when he sees that your plans are about to wreck you.” And it is so true! God’s plans for us are always for our good, because that’s just how much he loves us.

When God tells us no to something we really want, we get pretty upset don’t we? I mean God promises us great things doesn’t he? Well, yes! He absolutely does! But the thing is, God promises us great and amazing things, but he never promises we will get exactly what we want. When God tells us no, or takes something away from us that we loved so much, he is using everything to guide us in the right direction! God’s “no” is not a rejection, its a redirection. So I can guarantee, it’s a very good thing whenever God tells us no. Sometimes, it’s a very good thing not getting what we wanted, because God still promises us something great. Greater than anything we ever dreamed of! We just have to realize, that we can’t have exactly what we want, and have Gods even better and amazing plans at the same time.

In all the years that I have lived, never once did a single thing go exactly as I thought it would.

And every single time, no matter how tough it was to get through the big and small, it all turned out great, and I was okay.

God also says in this verse, that he has plans to prosper, and not to harm us.

Lets look into the word prosper

Prosper, means to succeed, to bloom, flourish, to fly, thrive, grow, to live, to shoot up, to flower, do well, blossom, booming, to spread, to expand, advance, make a mark, to impact, go places, and to make good!

Does anybody else see what I am seeing? God is saying that he promises that we will succeed, we will bloom through it all, we will flourish, and fly, and thrive, and shoot up, and spread, and that we will make a mark in the world!

I really do believe, that God does want us to have a happy life. Even though our lives may seem to completely turn around, I think that no matter what God will give us happiness. I believe that God loves to see us when we are happy!

He promises us that we will flourish, and thrive, and bloom, and fly! I find that very comforting. God is saying that everything he does, is not to harm or to hurt or punish us! His decisions for our future our perfect in every way, and he does it all for our good. He promises us hope, and a beautiful future!

He promises that what he has for us, is perfect. Far better than what we may see as perfect, and we will be so grateful at some points that we actually didn’t get what we wanted but got what God wanted!

God knows so much better than we do. Sometimes I forget that simple fact but it’s so very true.

God has ruled over everything. The heavens and the earth, from the beginning of time. He has reigned over it for all eternity! So I think that in all the time he has watched this earth, compared to the very few years I’ve been here, then I think he must have seen a whooooole lot more than I can ever imagine! And, he has.

So, that concludes to say, that there is nothing that God hasn’t seen, heard, or felt. God watched it all, and he is in complete control no matter how crazy it may feel, I promise you that God has never let go of that steering wheel of life! Every single thing that happens, happens for a reason. It all happens for the greater good.

If you just trust him with all your heart and stand strong in your faith, and just let go of everything that has hurt you and hand it all to God, he will give you everything you are destined for. Everything that happens to you, is all meant to lead you back to him, and to make you stronger, and to prepare you for whats ahead.

There are so, so, so many things ahead, that you and I can’t even imagine right now. God is full of surprises, and I definitely believe God fits some humor in there too haha! We don’t know what tomorrow holds, it’s just something we can never comprehend. But we can trust that God has a perfectly perfect plan beyond our understanding, and it’s all going to work out. There are many things ahead, that even though I have no clue what they could be, I can’t wait to figure that out.

So hon’, Gods got this, okay? No matter how hurt you are, no matter how scared, no matter how doubtful you are, God is going to pull you through the fire. He is going to stand right next to you through it all. He is going to watch you bloom, and you will be happy, and joyous, you will fly, flourish, and thrive. And he loves you. He will never stop.

And that’s a promise.

Now, we are going to get onto the beautiful quotes for some extra encouragement and smiles! Lemme know which of the quotes is your favorite! ; D

  7. This was beautiful, Hailey. I love your idea of doing a Bible study. It’s definitely a fresh encouragement. Angst over the future is definitely something which I think a lot of people (especially teenagers) go through…And there are two verses which have really, really helped me with this…
    First, Romans 8:28: “For all things work together for good to them that love God, to those that are called, according to His purpose.” And I LOVE this, because it just shows that no matter WHAT happens, it will always, ALWAYS work out, according to His beautifully amazing plan. We can have peace in the thought that even when we don’t know what’s going to happen, God has it ALL under control. 🙂 ❤
    And then, John 14:27: "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid." I LOVE this verse, because it shows us that, even through our most anxious and hardest times, God can surround us in His peace.
    Hailey, just know that I am praying for you, that you will feel God guiding and leading you, and that you will have wisdom, with regards to the future. Love ya! ❤ ❤
