Where havoc is powerless…

Over the last year, I have watched some people wreck havoc on the lives of others. And the sad thing is these people sincerely believe they are doing the right thing. They count the suffering they inflict as unfortunate but acceptable.

And for us who have endured this havoc? It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that these people have ruined God’s plan in our lives. It is easy to blame them for binding up God’s hands. But there is a verse that puts things back into perspective. God says, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’ (Isaiah 46:10)

It is a definitive statement. What God wants in our lives will happen. No one can thwart it. We can stand strong.

  1. Sorry to hear this, I can totally empathise.
    We go through many trials and tests, I am sure the Lord is looking to see how we handle stuff in this life as it will have relevance both now and in the life to come.

  2. Such a sad truth that this is so common, i too see it continue to keep happening but
    .. Praise God what a fabulous Scripture to move forward and hold onto.
    Lord may your Kingdom be seen in our churches and in our lives amen
