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. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. – Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NIV)
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. Then you will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you. – Proverbs 2:6-11 (NIV)
Are you searching for a strategic partner to help you to get to the next level? Perhaps you’re constantly searching for an affluent person who has the right kind of connections who will serve as the game changer for you. Perhaps you are looking to an employer, a well-connected person in the community, the government or a close relation.
Perhaps you have been sifting through a sea of people for so long that You have grown cold to the humanistic interaction with those individuals. After all, you’re in hot pursuit of identifying that strategic partner who will grant you access to a breakthrough, so much so, it’s essentially like speed networking. Once you realize that individual can’t deliver what you’re in need of, you rush to the next one in line.
Nevertheless, an individual may be the pipeline that God uses to transport to you what’s needed for your advancement but God and only God is the Source. He is The Door, the only entry point to gain access. He is our Strategic Partner who has a vantage point like no other. As we humbly approach our Daddy God with praise, thanksgiving and joyful expectation, He will grant us exactly what’s need to carry out His purpose and plan for our existence.
Lord, thank You for being my Strategic Partner and Source who has everything I need for advancement in every area of my life. I praise You for the fact that I’m not even called to make things happen in my own strength but to look to You for a strategic plan that in the end, ensures that I fulfill my purpose on this earth and gives You the utmost glory.
