God's Awesome Plans...
“I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted.” Job 42:2
After chapters of complaining and probably things not going well, God has now spoken. Job did exactly what any human would do, sit still and and be in awe and wonder. God is powerful above all things. He can do a things that we cannot fathom, he will complete things and bring them full circle. God is the beginning and the end.
I love this verse, it just makes you sit and reflect upon God. It make so you sit and just say wow. No plan of his can be thwarted. No plans of his can be changed, revised, or stopped. When God sets it in motion, it’s good as done. I know it’s hard for me to fully comprehend this. Especially when I’m in the middle of a problem. Like now. I thought God wanted me to do something, but it has been so far very difficult. Daily I am faced with obstacles and filled with a little doubt about the direction I am on. Or one area of my life suffers because of decisions I felt the Lord guided me too. But this verse is encouraging to me. It is encouraging me to hang tough and know that if God sets something up it will be done.
Lord thank you for the encouragement for today. Help me as you see your plans more clearly and move to trust that it will not be shaken.
