God’s plan will prevail
God’s purpose will always prevail…
This reminds me of the story of Jonah.
God told Jonah to speak to the people of Nineveh to turn away from their sins. But Jonah, instead of going God’s way, went the other way. Got himself and others in trouble to the point of death.
And as a result, He got swallowed by a whale or big fish [Pinocchio anyone?]
Finally, after 3 days and nights, he landed on Nineveh and went on to do the works of the Lord.
This post is to tell you that God’s plan will prevail
This leads me to talk about God’s plan for you.
Yes, we have the choice to follow God’s plan for us or reject it.
But either way, His plan will always prevail whether you’re in it or not.
This is not to be mean, but it reminds you that we have the God whose love for His people is immense (John 3:16). He does not want to punish His people but rather bless them and overflow them with His Love.
Therefore, God uses people to tell other people about their sins to come to repentance. He qualifies them not because they are able but because He is sovereign and is able to do so.
He wants them to know that their understanding does not see everything. It’s limited. It directly leads them astray from focusing on Him.
He knows all things! He created all things.
Therefore, what He has given to you, He can take away. Why? Because He’s sovereign. He knows what is best for you and His will.
Do you ever wonder why sometimes you have friends for a particular season, then all of a sudden you both no longer communicate anymore?
That may be due to God removing this person from your life because He is pruning and preparing you for His will, His blessing, and His purpose for your life.
God’s purpose will always prevail. So why fight it?
Personally, I feared the unknown. I did not give myself away so that God can fully use me. I was afraid. But the Bible said that we were not given a spirit of fear but of power, love, and sound of mind (2 Timothy 1:7 NJKV).
Plus, faith drives me to believe that God’s word and promise will sustain me and keep me in perfect peace because I trust Him (Isaiah 26:3).
He wants you to be in HIM always because He knows what’s best and will take care of you.
But do you entrust Him with that care?
Do you entrust Him enough to let Him change your life 360?
But if you do not want to receive His plan for you, that is your choice.
I don’t know what is going to happen on the other side of that choice.
Because He can either leave you with that choice or bring you around so that all you can do is abide in His will.
You may see this as a forcing or unfair act, but I see this as submission in a good, honorable way. Because why should I fight against a GOD who created the Heavens and the Earth? Who gave me breath? And who made you & we?
