Why Your Plans Will Fail, But Everything Will Work Out By GOD's Grace

I was meditating on a few things this morning and thinking about the wisdom of GOD. There are countless times when I have made a plan and what I planned just did not work out that way. No disclaimers, my plan simply failed.

This has not always been the case. There are a few instances where I can actually recall my plan working out just as I planned - but this is the exception, not the rule.

Why do our plans fail? How can we have peace when they don't come to pass? Proverbs 16:9 says:
A man's heart devises his way: but the LORD directs his steps.
My best explanation for plans failing is based on the fact that we as humans do not have enough information to actually make plans. Think about it:

  • We do not know the future
  • We have no way to plan for the unexpected circumstances that might occur

The Names Of God in The Old Testament

God as we know Him has always been and always will be. He has no beginning and no end. His wisdom is shown throughout the cosmos and our home, planet Earth. 

When Moses was called by God to go deliver the children of Israel, he asked God who should He say sent him? 

God replied, "I AM." He further explained that He was " I AM that I AM."

Seems kind of weird for a name, right?

After the Israelites were delivered, they wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. During this time, I AM revealed who He was by His what He did. 

God revealed who He was by what He did. 

If you feel lost, confused or struggle with unbelief, please use this as a reference. Call on The Lord and watch Him show up. He knows your heart, so you don't have to be fancy with your words or know what to say - simply call out to I AM and what Him become what you need!

Keep pressing. Your labor is not in vain. 

Trials and Tribulations and Their Disguised Blessings

We all have them, and we all wish that they would go away -- forever. I'm talking about trials and tribulations.

As the people of God, we must endure trials and tribulations. The world goes through their own as well. However, the purpose behind ours is unique. These detested things offer hidden blessings and provide lasting wisdom that will help us and others as we continue to travel the narrow road, on our way to the strait gate.
