Day 23 - 28 Day Challenge

God's Plan

Reading Acts 23 today I was reminded of Psalm 2.

Why the big noise, nations? Why the mean plots, peoples? Earth-leaders push for position, Demagogues and delegates meet for summit talks, The God-deniers, the Messiah-defiers: “Let’s get free of God! Cast loose from Messiah!” Heaven-throned God breaks out laughing. At first he’s amused at their presumption; Then he gets good and angry.

Some people had an agenda that was opposed to God's agenda. They wanted to kill Paul and put an end to his message of hope for the world. God had other ideas.

(v11-12)As far as God was concerned Paul was going to Rome and no matter how many people made an oath to frustrate God's plan there was only going to be none winner.

No matter how desperate the situation looks God's plan will ultimately take place so we need to take the advice Jesus gave to Paul when he came to him in the night: Be brave.

The fat lady has not sung until God has spoken.

I don't think it's always about opposition to God,but we 're just afraid of the unknown,of what will happen to us.Remember Jonas,at the end,to get him to destination,God used a fish.
