Ref Isaiah 46:9-10
We’re living in perilous times in the world today. Humanity is shaken. There’s pervading fear all around. Life and livelihood are disturbed. Daily routine is interrupted. Things aren’t the same as we know them.
Isaiah 46:9b-10 says, “I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.’” GOD determined the end and result of all things from the beginning. He foreknew and determined all things and all time – from beginning to end. Nothing that happens take Him by surprise. In fact, nothing can happening outside of His foreknowledge. GOD has no crisis or disaster. Crisis or disaster must receive His permission to happen. He is in charge and in control of all things.
GOD does not experience anxiety, fear or panic, because He determined the end from the beginning. Nothing that should not happen will happen. Nothing that should happen will fail to happen. Remember He says, “My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.” GOD is the boss and owner of this world. He’s the Creator of all things, and everything is happening perfectly as it should. This is why at all times we need to be led by His Spirit, because He knows the thoughts, meditations, mind, plans and purposes of GOD. We need to be hidden with Christ in GOD.
GOD who has begun a good, glorious work in you will continue and complete it, until the day Christ returns. Nothing can deter Him from accomplishing it. If we’re still waiting for Christ’s return, GOD is still working in you. He said nothing will stop it until Christ returns. So whatever happens against you before Christ returns cannot stop what GOD has begun to do in you and with you. Therefore, by all intents and purposes, we have no need to fear, to be anxious or to panic. We only need to be faithful, patient and ready for our GOD.
GOD knew you before you became an embryo, a fetus. He determined your life and the length of your days. Nothing happens by chance in life. He causes everything to work together – in agreement – for your good. Don’t be afraid, everything is meant to work out for your good. In these times, it’s natural for people to fear, it’s a human response. However, don’t allow that fear to change your focus, vision and resolve – because nothing can change God’s plan for you. Most believers have faced the worst of times, and conquered by their faith in GOD through His Son, Jesus. Remember, Holy Spirit is here with us and in us. So how can we fear or perish if He’s here for us? God’s not taking chances with your life.
Everything is happening perfectly as it should
