Our Omniscient God

Do you love Fall colors?

I sure do.  🙂

With that in mind, I couldn’t wait to take a vacation to visit friends and see their beautiful home in New England.

can God's plans be thwarted?

Couldn’t you just stare at those beautiful trees changing color forever?

Our omniscient God created those spectacular displays of brilliant color because it pleases Him.

New England, this time of year, is just breathtaking.

Fall in New England

I have to admit; it was hard to leave. I lost myself in the beauty of the landscapes, the changing colors of the trees, the scenery rich in history, and the delicious seafood.

It was such a great time and, I’m particularly in love with birch trees.

can God's plans be thwarted

I’d love to have a birch tree here in Texas, but I’m afraid the heat would kill it, the tree would fall, and then bonk somebody on the head.

Guess we’ll have to go back to Boston again!

Power of God: A Lesson To Remember

When we were in Boston, we attended a church service at a delightful country church as well visiting our friends’ Sunday school class.

One of the questions posed during class time: Can God’s plans be thwarted?

What does the word “thwart” mean?

And why does that word look so funny? 😉

Thwart means, among other things, to prevent something from happening.

In our hearts, and also as Christians, we know the answer to that question is a resounding “No.”

God’s plans never fail.

Ever, Ever, Ever!

So we have what our hearts tell us, but what does the Bible say?

Does Scripture back it up, so we have an answer when skeptics come calling?

Yes, it does!

Right here, in the Book of Job:

*2I know that You can do all things,

And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted. – Job 42:2. (NASB.)

Our most powerful God answers to no one.

**13 “Even from eternity I am He,
And there is none who can deliver out of My hand;
I act and who can reverse it?” Isaiah 43:13. (NASB).

God’s providence is never thwarted.

Not by any earthly king, ruler, dictator, political leader, religious leader, foreign council, government, or agenda.

Here are some additional supporting verses of God’s sovereignty from Scripture.

Isaiah 14:27

Isaiah 40:22-23

Daniel 4:35

No one can thwart God, block God, frustrate God, surprise God, stop God, trip Him up, confuse Him, tie His hands, trample over God, dethrone Him, double-cross Him, outwit him, or restrain Him.

No matter how dark this world will get, God is in charge.

Our Omniscient God Provides An Escape Plan

Scripture tells us the world will fall under a massive deception. God will allow it to happen, but there’s an eternal escape plan. As Christians, we know what it is.

We must accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and put aside the deceptions and apostasies created by man.

We are living in a world desperately in need of His saving grace.

God bless
