For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Eternal, “plans for peace, not evil, to give you a future and hope—never forget that. Jeremiah 29:11 (VOICE)
In life, all believers should come to know and understand the Sovereignty of the Lord! As such, He is the supreme authority in heaven and on earth, and He has to power to do whatever He pleases! Hence, His will will prevail! But, sometimes, due to misconception or lack of understanding we fail to submit to His authority and choose to do otherwise! When we do, it comes as no surprise to Him because He knows how a carnal mind thinks and behaves! Although we are busily going about life in our own way, His plans for us never change! In fact, He patiently waits for us to realize that our plan for our lives will never work! In effect, He will allow us to live uninterrupted in self-destructive plans until He has had enough! In our minds, we believed that we were in control! However, He has always and forever will be completely in control! When we know and understand that, why would we want to live outside of God’s best! As such, He offers us tranquility and peace in a chaotic and confused world, to protect us and do what’s best for us, and a hope that will sustain us and never disappoint us! Since we’re in a position to choose, I choose God’s plan over my own! Do you?
