“There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the LORD.” Proverbs 21:30
The LORD’s purposes will prevail! People can make plans, wise people can make plans, insightful people can make plans, but ultimately none will overcome the purposes and plans of the LORD! I must walk by faith and not by sight. Even when it appears that evil people are “winning” or that their plans are succeeding, it is not reality! In reality, in view of all eternity (not the moment) God’s plans cannot be stopped.
“I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please. From the East I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do.” Isaiah 46:10-11
“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21
“But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.” Psalm 33:11
“Then Job replied to the LORD: ‘I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted.’ ” Job 42:1-2
“Then Jesus told him, ‘Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen yet have believed.’ ” John 20:29
LORD, You alone are Lord and God! You own all things. You know all things. You are all-powerful! Nothing can stop your plans. As you have planned, so will it be. Praise your holy name! Thank you Father that I can trust all I am to all you are. I worship you as the one true God! Thank you for working your will out in my life. Help me to walk by faith and not by sight.
When we finally see the whole picture of eternity, we will see how God brought everything together to fulfill His purposes.
“In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will…” Ephesians 1:11
