Jeremiah 29:11 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. (NIV)

We seek to know God’s will for our life but are we seeking His will for us each and every day.  We tend to get so wrapped up with the big picture we forget the small steps.  Life is a day to day adventure.  God has plans for us each and every day.  His plans are for us to prosper.  Prosper doesn’t only apply to finances and material things.  God wants us to prosper in a full and abundant life in Him.  The scriptures are full of God’s direction for us.  If we don’t read, study and meditate on them it is hard to get God’s direction for our daily walk.  Each morning we are to talk to and listen to God through the scriptures and through the Holy Spirit’s gentle voice within us.  He so desires to share His plans for us each day.  Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us 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.  We can’t expect our path to be clear to us if we don’t trust Him.  He also says in Jeremiah 29:12-13 12 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 hear.  Let us call on Him each and every day.  Let us present our day to Him.  Let us listen to Him for His instructions for our day.  He will make our path straight.
