We are God’s Visionaries: Imagine (think and see what God says)

(Ephesians 3:20) Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,

Imagine God’s Good Plans: 

(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 hope and a future.

1.“I know the plans I have for you …

” Yada: Ginosko – that close type of knowing, touching, seeing, tasting, experiencing.

“There are only 2 ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle, the other is as though everything is a miracle.” Einstein

2.Plans for peace – ‘shalom’. good health, prosperity, security. (and they were in babylon)

3.Plans for hope – expected end. So what do we do?

(Jeremiah 29:12-14a) 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.”

2.Trust Him, Seek Him. 

(Proverb 3:5-6) Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; (6) in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

3.Get a God-given plan. 

(Proverb 29:18)Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdomʼs instruction.

4.Take small steps towards it now. 

(Zechariah 4:10a NLT) Do not despise these small beginnings, for the lord rejoices to see the work begin,

-Foundational decisions?

-Change?

-Sacrifice?
