It is comforting to know that no matter what we face on our journey we can rest assured that God has a plan. Sometimes the plan is obvious while other times the plan appears to be hidden, at least from us. But God has a plan.
God has a plan for every trial, sorrow, heartache and difficulty we face. It may not seem like it when we are going through the difficult times but we can rest assured that our infinite God has a divine plan.
There are those who do not think God's plan is fair to them. Let's face it, life is not always fair. But God has a plan.
Some do not like God's plan as it pertains to them. Others simply reject God's plan out of hand. But, still, God has a plan.
We don't always understand God's plan. Let's look at what God spoke through Isaiah the prophet:
Isaiah 55:8-9 (CSB) - "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways." This is the Lord's declaration. "For as heaven is higher than earth, so My ways are higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts."
So you see God's plans and ways are far bigger than ours. He sees the big picture. We see but a snippet of the picture. God is working His will out in our lives. Why are you facing what you are facing? Because God has a plan!
The world may be in a mess. But God has a plan. The church as we have known it is in disarray but God has a plan.
Some things will never the same as a result of the COVOD 19 coronavirus. I'm okay with that. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Perhaps God is wanting believers to get out of the rut they've been in for so long. Perhaps God wants to use this to get us outside the four walls of the building we meet in. I submit God is using this time to move His people "outside the box" of organized religion or religion as we know it today.
We can choose to get lost in fighting the political battle for a land we are just passing through or we can allow God to use us to affect eternal change in the lives of people as we move "outside the box" of organized religion. Which will you choose?
Remember, God has a plan!
Until next time...enjoy the journey!
