‘… EVERY PURPOSE OF THE LORD SHALL BE PERFORMED’
Even in the midst of pain, separation and disappointment, you’re still in God’s protective custody. With Him nothing ‘just happens’. ‘Coincidence’ is what takes place when He decides to remain anonymous!
Look at Jonah: God sent him to Nineveh but instead, he boarded a ship headed in the opposite direction. Now it ‘just happened’ that a storm blew up. He was dumped overboard, a great fi sh swallowed him, threw him up three days later and the fi rst words he heard when he hit the beach were, ‘Go to Nineveh.’ You can go the easy way or the hard way, the choice is yours! One thing is certain; every purpose of God shall be performed!
A little girl was running to get to Sunday school on time, praying, ‘Lord, don’t let me be late.’ Suddenly she tripped, fell and got her dress dirty. Getting back up she brushed herself off and said, ‘Lord, You know I don’t want to be late, but You don’t have to shove!’
Sometimes God gives us a shove to: a) get us out of our rut or b) get us over our fear.That’s because He’s in charge. He’ll ‘take you, break you, and make you‘, in order to carry out His will. Satan has never once been able to abort God’s plan. In sickness,poverty, abandonment, betrayal or mistreatment, nothing ever ‘just happens’. Behind the scenes, God is orchestrating everything. Romans 8:28 tells us that, ‘…all things work together…according to His purpose,’ including the things you’re going through right now!
