The Lord of hosts has sworn saying, “Surely, just as I have intended so it has happened, and just as I have planned so it will stand, This is the plan devised against the whole earth; and this is the hand that is stretched out against all the nations. For the Lord of hosts has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back?”
Isaiah 14:24, 26-27 NASB
God has a plan. He is always at work fulfilling His plan. From the creation of the Universe even up to today, God is working out His plan.
We can willingly be a part of that plan or we can rebel against that plan but His plan will come to completion either way.
My hope is that you look to Jesus, our hope for eternity, and walk according to His plan.
What is His plan? It is written out in His holy word. Read it and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal.
🌹Start by seeking Him daily through His word, asking through prayer for understanding, wisdom, the revealing of His word. Ask for a heart, a soul, a mind that will love Him in it’s entirety. Then watch as the Father transforms your willing heart into the image of His Son, Jesus Christ.
Continually Seeking Him,
Then Joseph said to his brothers, “Please come closer to me.” And they came closer. And he said, “I am your brother Joseph, whom you sold into Egypt. Now do not be grieved or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life. For the famine has been in the land these two years, and there are still five years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvesting. God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant in the earth, and to keep you alive by a great deliverance. Now, therefore, it was not you who sent me here, but God; — Genesis 45:4-8a
God always has a plan. In good times and bad. Joseph had some good and bad in his life but he always stayed faithful, loving the Lord.
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. — Romans 8:28
Continually seeking Him,
Sarah said, “God has made laughter for me; everyone who hears will laugh with me.” And she said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age.” — Genesis 21:6-7
At just the right time, according to God’s plan, Isaac was born to Sarah and Abraham. Her response? “God has made laughter for me”.
I can relate. My granddaughter brings much laughter to my life, and joy. Sarah was blessed as she held Isaac and watched him grow. Being a grandmother I am fascinated watching my granddaughter grow. She brings laughter to my life that I haven’t had in a long time. Enjoy your children, grandchildren, and if so blessed, great grandchildren. Watch and laugh with them.
(Just have to add that she is better than a puppy when I walk in the room).
Continually seeking Him,
