Today’s Journal Prompt is:
Every once in a while, you learn something new from the Bible or about God. And through the last few months, I’ve learned one “new” thing about God. And that is:
It’s already been decided.
Everything that happens in our lives, has already been decided by God. Whatever may or may not happen, has been determined by an All-Knowing, All-Powerful God.
Is that not amazing? We may worry about an unknown situation, but the result has already been decided long ago.
Nothing takes God by surprise, while something may throw us for a loop, and completely catch us off guard. It was all God’s doing, and He knows what’s best for us.
We may question God’s plan, and wonder why He may be putting us through trials or something. But God knows what’s best.
Isaiah 55:9 says
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.
We just need to rest patiently in God’s care and unlimited knowledge.
No amount of worry or other emotions is not going to change an outcome. Because it’s already been decided by God.
Jeremiah 29:11 says
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
