God has a plan for your life. He is a master orchestrator of situations and circumstances and will work it all out for you.
Jer 1:5 “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
Jer 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
God will abundantly pardon. He is all about getting people saved, eternal business. He is trying to build character in you. He’s not concerned about the way you look, perfect on the outside, but miserable on the inside. God is interested in your soul.
You’ve got five assistants (senses). They help you negotiate in this world. We’ve got sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste. These do not help you at all in the Spirit, in fact sometimes they hinder. We need understanding and sight in the spirit. You can’t negotiate the spirit through our flesh. You’ve got to be able to see with your spiritual eyes.
God is in the spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and truth. Your life is in the hands of a master planner. His ways are higher than your ways.
He’s not trying to destroy you. He’s trying to get you promoted.
“The king’s heart is in the hands of the Lord.”
God will choose the man that will sit in the White House that will fulfill His plan. Everything is going to be all right. He really is concerned about you. He has a plan for you.
HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOU! He is concerned about your soul.
When stuff falls apart, we need to look to the Lord. I may not have lots of stuff, but I have eternal life. I will not trade my soul in for anything else.
We get confused when we think God has abandoned us or we think we’ve strayed somehow. Everything works for your benefit. All of it is working together for your good!
The hand of God is upon other men. He hardened the heart of Pharaoh and Nebuchadnezzar and Herod. He knows what He’s doing. It all works together in a song called life. Sometimes the most powerful portion of the music is in the silence.
In the pause of life, it’s not God withdrawing Himself, it’s all part of the plan.
God is right here working out His plan. Even our mistakes are part of His plan. Don’t mistake the absence of God for the perfect timing of God. It might be a fermata or a rest or a simple breath in the music. Are we still in this orchestra?
Why is it so dark? Don’t worry. God has a plan. You are not abandoned by God. He is fulfilling His plan in your life.
