but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails." (Proverbs 19:21)
Today I watched a building come down. Wood, brick and mortar all piled into trucks and hauled away. The effort that was made to accomplish this was no small task. Several men and machines worked to bring this structure down. Organization and planning had to be done several days in advance for everything to flow smoothly and still there were issues that had to be addressed during the process. Most issues occurred because of the unwillingness of the workers to accept the plan put in place.
In everyday life we deal with issues that need to be brought down in our life. The effort that was made, for our piles of pain and sin to be hauled away, was no small task. Just One Man did all the work that needed to be done. God has an eternal plan that allows everything to flow smoothly. However, there is still one issue that remains in the process that must be dealt with. Your willingness to follow the plan.
God help us through your Spirit to read and follow Your Word. Amen.
