Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things that are not yet done, Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure’; Isaiah 46:10
When God put a calling on your life, He already factored in your stupidity.
Omniscience: the capacity to know everything.
Nothing takes God by surprise. God knows everything that will happen from the beginning through the end of creation, and thereafter. He also knows our thoughts, our hearts intentions and if He warns us about something… it’s because it’s in our capacity to stand firm through it all.
We are supposed to process the word, eat it, breathe it and confess it until it’s embedded in us. Even when our situations don’t match with what we are believing or declaring, we can hold on to our faith. If we stand firm, we’ll testify about God’s sovereignty and power.
The Lord prepares and warns us before hand. He gives us promptings, dreams, visions, and uses people to minister/prophesy to us too. The Bible foretells many things that are happening,and have been fulfilled throughout the years. But I find two stories in the Bible quite interesting, Hezekiah and Peter.
Hezekiah made a prideful mistake and brought the enemy camp into his home and showed them his gold. As aftermath, the Lord told Hezekiah to get his life in order, because he would soon die. The Lord added 15 years of life to Hezekiah after he turned to him in sincere prayer. Peter denied knowing the Lord Jesus when he was captured to be crucified. When foretold of the occasion, Peter was proud and said “Lord, I would never!” The greatest teaching in these stories is that our God is a God of second chances. Nothing we do, would ever catch God off guard.
The Lord God calculates the hearts and intentions of His people. He gives us the word to help us, equip us, change our direction and see us through to victory. He is for us and not against us!
Thank you father God, for your grace and tender mercies. I pray you continue to increase our faith and wisdom. May we rejoice in every season of our lives. May our hope be renewed, and our hearts restored. In Jesus name, Amen.
