The Lord’s Hand Reaches Thru All…

4 Apr

Grand Haven Snow, April

Job was hurting.  Job had been thru it all. Loss of children. Loss of home. Loss of possessions. Illness. Questioned by friends over his lot in life as it all seemed to fall apart.

Yet, thru this Job says to the Lord, “I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.” Job 42:2

What a statement from a man who was currently in a state of suffering!

I find myself asking, “Do I trust in the Lord enough to say that in the trials I face, big or small, “Lord, I know your hand is in my life. You see all that goes on and I trust you to lead me thru each day?” Hmmmm…sometimes, I don’t “give the Lord enough credit”. Pretty embarrassing, right?

I think we all fall into that trap of believing He cannot be thwarted, but when it comes to the details we want to step in and take control. As Steve Brown (Key Life) says that’s not believing in His sovereignty (I paraphrase.)

So, as you tackle life, muddle thru it at times, or sail thru it without a care, “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus”, 1 Thessalonians 5:18, and nothing can stop the Lord from doing the absolute best for you in your life – “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11

The Lord’s will cannot be overcome by anyone or anything. Hallelujah!! 🙂 Remember, “For the Lord Almighty has purposed, and who can thwart him? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?” Isaiah 14:27

And, whether you think your in control or you are fearful of others control/influence/affect in your life, remember this too, “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21

May your day be bright, Sarah Marie:)
