There are going to be times where God tells us to do something that doesn’t make sense. He may tell us to leave a good job to go work at a place that pays less. He may tell us to leave a relationship that seems promising. He may tell us to give money away that we set aside for ourselves.

When it doesn’t make sense remember Jeremiah 29:11.

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.

Whatever God tells us to do is to prosper us. The devil will tell us over and over again how stupid the idea is or how God is making our lives miserable but, he’s a liar. It may not make logical sense but, whatever God tells us to do ends in prosperity.

That job that pays less may be the catapult to fulfill our assignment and position us to receive double in salary. God could be saving us from a relationship where we’ll experience years of heartache. That money we gave away will bless someone else but God promises that it will come back to us with interest.

At the end of the day, in His own way, God desires to prosper us.
