Thwarted


I love the word

THWARTED.

Try saying it ten times or just once

and you will love it too.

Besides just saying it,

it is my favorite word

in the Bible

as it brings

PEACE in the midst of wait

JOY in the midst of despair

&

it acknowledges that

GOD IS GOD

and

HIS ways are the best ways

because

HE knows what HE is doing~

"I know that You can do all things,

And that no purpose of Yours can be THWARTED." Job 42:2

THWARTED

comes rolling out of the mouth of

Job who also said~

"What I always feared has happened to me.

What I dreaded has come true." Job 3:25

Job who also said~

"I hate my life and don't want to go on living.

Oh, leave me alone for my few remaining days." Job 7:16

And then after 41 chapters of loss and despair

Job says it~

"I know that you can do all things;

no purpose of yours can be thwarted." Job 42:2

THWARTED

defined by my little brain~

God will do what God will do & whatever

He does will be the best for you & I

and no one can stop Him.

THWARTED

defined by

JESUS~

“With man this is impossible,

but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

Hmm...

think about it the next time you say the word

THWARTED

because

"For I know the plans I have for you,”

declares the Lord,

“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
