Survival Mode

In these times of pandemic, lockdown and racial tension, many people today are living in “survival mode.” If they can just make it through the day, without stress and anxiety, they’ve accomplished their goal. Life can seem overwhelming and challenging. There are seasons that are more difficult than others. But God doesn’t want us to just survive, He wants us to thrive.

God, wants us to prosper (thrive) in all things. One definition of the word “thrive” means “to realise, reach and accomplish a goal, despite circumstances.” That means you can prosper in all things no matter what is going on around you. You don’t have to settle for a below average year; you can have an extraordinary year despite these unprecedent times.

Today, you may be planning on just surviving, but God is planning on you thriving. He’s planning on overflow and abundance. It’s time to get in agreement with Him. It’s time to walk in His ways. It’s time see your dreams come to pass. It’s time to thrive, because God has a plan for you to prosper and not just survive!

“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” (3 John 1:2, NKJV)

Pray With Me

Yahweh, thank You for the gift of life. Thank You for Your protection during these unprecedented times. Father, I cast my cares on You, knowing that You care about me. God, please remove anxiety, stress and negativity. Help me to see the good plan You have for me, so that I can thrive the way You intended, in Christ’s Name! Amen.
