Lots of people cry, give up, or even die because of the verdicts, or opinions of people whom they regard and trust. For instance, the doctors in their expertise may tell you that your case is terminal, a loved one may tell you, you are not good enough for them, or the teachers in school may say you are not intelligent etc.
Folks men do not have the last word in this world’s affairs! The human hand isn’t omnipotent. Your case isn’t over just because someone says it is. Men make statements; make plans and calculations, forgetting that there is a God that rules in the affairs of men.
Perhaps there are people who have told you that it is over for you, or who have told you that your hopes and dreams can never be realized, that you are merely building castles in air and so on. Well what they say about you or to you would be true is there was no God. But there is a God, – a God of power, of love, and He answers prayers.
I have heard so many people blame God when things go wrong with them, when their plans are broken, or when they lose a loved one. But this isn’t suppose to be so, because when a good God loving person suffers, it is because God permits it, because it is his will, and it is a blessing even though you don’t know it.
Our plans are continually broken or derailed by life’s changes and challenges, but God’s plans for us are never altered.
Never leave God out when making your plans for the day, week, month or year. Never be discouraged when in the pursuit of your dreams, everything seems to be going against you. Even in your darkest and most discouraging moments, be of good cheer.
And know this, God’s plan for your life includes these challenges, disappointments, or adversity that are troubling you now, so take them in as part of His thoughts, and when you do, not one of them will mar the beauty, and success that God is trying to create for you.
