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. Scriptures are filled with many evidences to support that fact. Here are just a few of them:
For the LORD Almighty has purposed, and who can thwart him? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back? (Isaiah 14:27).
Then Job answered the LORD and said, “I know that You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted” (Job 42:2).
“There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the LORD” (Proverbs 21:30).
“The Lord foils the plans of the nations [the wicked]; He thwarts the purposes of the [wicked] peoples. But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of His heart through all generations” (Ps. 33:10,11).
”O Lord, God of our fathers, are You not the God who is in Heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in Your hand, and no one can withstand You” (2 Chron. 20:6).
”Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails” (Prov. 19:21).
”The Lord works out everything for His own ends –even the wicked for a day of disaster” (Prov. 16:4).
”The faithless will be fully repaid for their ways, and the good man rewarded for his” (Prov. 14:14).
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. It has a beginning, a middle and an end. What unfolds in your life is no mere chance. The Bible tells us the steps of a righteous man are ordered of God, not the enemy, not yourselves, but of God.
Live life as it unfolds before you. When you hear the small still voice, obey it. When you know what to do, do it. When you know what is right, follow that. When Jesus promises us “I will never leave you nor forsake you,” that is a promise that cannot be broken. Ask him to guide you in all your undertakings and give you wisdom in fulfilling your tasks. Be encouraged today in the fact that God cannot be hindered, by anything or anybody. Time, circumstances and situations cannot hinder God, the MAKER of all things. It doesn’t matter what is happening, how long you have been waiting, or the many obstacles placed in your way, God cannot be hindered.
He has an overall plan for your situation and it cannot be thwarted. God’s plan in your situation will stand. Isaiah 14:27 – For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? And His hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back? Our God cannot be restricted. No one can build a fence around Him. No one can set up a force field around Him. We can’t set up a situation where He can’t do what is correct. He will use stumbling blocks as stepping stones to come through for you. Trust Him. He is His only limit. He can do whatever he wants, whenever He wants. His desires, plans and will are the only controls that are placed upon Him. God allows obstacles, and chooses obstacles, to show his great might in situation after situation so that he alone gets the glory.
God Knows – By Deborah Ann
God knows what you need, even before you do . . .
He knows the path and the way that He has prepared for you.
God knows your future, good things are in His plans
but you must trust and believe and put your life in His hands.

God knows your troubles, they are in His thoughts
so give Him your faith today and let Him connect the dots.
God knows your desires, He has a purpose and design
they are yours to possess but to doubt – you must resign.

God knows your every need, they are all in His hand
so there’s no need to worry He’s got for you a perfect plan!
