Recently I had a conversation with some friends. He’d been involved in an unfortunate incident and had injured himself and required medical attention…and the incident was a bit embarrassing. As we chatted, I told him “God has a plan that we don’t see. You could have left on time and been involved in an accident and totaled your car or worse…have been killed. So, we just have to accept that this is part of the plan we don’t understand.” I went on to elaborate just a bit on how this has been true in my own life.
Later, I received a text from the man’s wife thanking me for the encouraging words. She said it was just what her husband needed to hear that day. I sent her a reply and said “We don’t get to see the plan, but we know who designed it.”
There is a lot of truth in that statement. And I believe it with all of my being. I read this recently in a Bible reading plan/study I was doing using the You Version Bible App. The study is called Pray Continually: Devotions from Time of Grace. Day 3 had this statement:
occurrences that have to happen first.
