“Many a time they have afflicted me from my youth,”
Let Israel now say—
“Many a time they have afflicted me from my youth;
Yet they have not prevailed against me.
The Sovereign Lord will prevail in His eternal plan.
You get the impression that God has an idea about what He is going to do! History isn’t just careening out of control with God desperately trying to grab the reins! The Sovereign God controls all of the events of history for His purpose. As He declares through Isaiah:
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” (14:24).
Have you felt lately like someone is messing with your life? Well, there is absolute no need to worry about that because no matter what anyone does, he or she cannot abort God’s plans for your life. He or she can only put obstacles in your way to hinder His plans but he or she cannot abort them.
The truth is that God the Father has a plan, set in stone, for each and everyone of us. He has had it since the foundations of the world and that plan will absolutely and definitely come to pass. God’s plans are designed for a specific time and season. Nothing can derail them. Nothing happens before its time. God’s timing is perfect. He is never too early or too late. When you understand and believe that fact, nothing should trouble your mind ever again.
You must keep trusting, praising and believing that God’s will, and way, will prevail. Do not allow the enemy to torment you with the “what if’s” of your life. Believe in God and know that no plan of His can be thwarted! The meaning of “thwart” is, “to hinder, obstruct, frustrate or defeat a person plans, etc. The synonym for thwart is “frustrate,” which means: “to cause to have no effect, bring to nothing; counteract; nullify…to frustrate plans. To prevent from achieving an objective; foil, baffle, defeat…to frustrate an opponent; thwart implies frustration by blocking or acting in opposition to a person or thing moving toward some objective.”
God’s plans will always come to pass.
“And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the Lord, to deliver thee.”
Anyone who fights against God’s will, even if he perceives himself to be making headway, is ultimately fighting a brick wall (Ps. Ch. 2).
Anyone who thinks he can obstruct, prevent, or defeat God’s plan is only going to injure himself (Exodus 15:7; 1 Sam. 2:10; Ps. 68:1, 2).
Those who are faithful, God helps, but the arrogant, the greedy, and even those who align themselves with rebels, will incur upon themselves disaster, distress, and pain from God’s hand (2 Chron. 19:2 // Luke 1:50-53 // Eph. 5:6).
It is a spiritual battle you are in my friend. It is not a flesh and blood fight. What the devil meant for evil, God will work it out for good, in your favour my friend. No need for you to worry. People will continue to hinder God’s plans for your life but they cannot stop it no matter how hard they might try. Study the life of Moses, Ruth, Joseph and Job and you will see and be encouraged. No one can nullify GOD’S plans.
Human’s plans will always fail. When their plans fail, it is often because the planner has overlooked some detail. Something unforeseen arises, and suddenly plans collapse. This is because every detail was not taken into account. God’s plan is all-inclusive. It is based on God’s omniscience (knowing all), so that everything past, present, and future is taken into account. God’s omniscience includes all things which will actually occur, as well as all things which could possibly occur. Every contingency is taken into account in God’s plan. God’s plan is for all creation, things in heaven and on earth, things visible and invisible, thrones, dominions, rulers, and authorities (Colossians 1:16).
God’s plan includes seemingly insignificant details. It excludes “good luck” or coincidences. When Joseph wandered about in a field looking for his brothers, he did not just happen to be found and told where his brothers had gone (Genesis 37:14-17). The fact that the pit into which Joseph was thrown was empty was no coincidence (37:24). The passing caravan, which was headed toward Egypt, was no accident either (37:25-28). The fact that Ruth would “happen” upon the field of Boaz, a near kinsman of Naomi, was not mere chance but a matter of God’s providential control (Ruth 2:3).
This is to show you that no matter what anyone does to you – (suppresses you, overlooks you, denies you, rejects you, oppresses you) – God has taken and factored in all those things in his plans for you already. They are not mere coincidences. Don’t let those things get you down. God has everything covered. God’s plan is unchangeable and nothing and no one in this universe can stop that plan. We have Genesis and we have the Book of Revelation. God has a plan and it will come to pass, and nothing can stop it. Nothing can thwart that plan.
