We humans keep brainstorming options and plans, but God’s purpose prevails. ~ Proverbs 19:21 (MSG)
The Lord speaks and says,
This is your sign for Me; for I place it in your hands and put you on the side of the road as a sign for others who are lost. They will see this and charge you with answers – What do you mean? How can you not know where you are going? Of course, you know your final resting place is with your God! Be of good cheer! Why do you stand there that way?
And this is your reply to these – No one knows all of the places God will take them until the time of His return! Be certain of this – you can be of great good cheer in understanding that His will is being done in your life! What else is there?
Destination after destination- there are many- as you go along on your way to the next place you thought you would be. What happened? You ended up somewhere else!
“How did I get here?” you ask. “I don’t even know how this happened!”
Was it poor planning on your part or Mine? No!
Was it a mistake or a last minute change of plans? Of course not!
This is indeed the very path I have carved out for you – set in stone before your beginning! YES, In stone!
And in the hearts of men, it may seem like there is confusion, yet they long to know the course and the destination. ‘As the wind blows, God will show us’, they say. ‘And as we travel, signs will develop. Here on earth, we know the roads, and our destination must be near, or a familiar sign will appear!’
But I say,
STOP the longing for a sign and KNOW ME WELL. I AM the SIGN for which you search! I AM THE DESTINATION you seek. There is none other- no place to go or be that is more important or official, but RESTING in Me!
There you will find all of the longings of your searching and there you will see the lengths to which I have gone to show you these things.
With assurance, you can say – I have found the right place!
Here is my premium destination and the place I belong always! RIGHT HERE – in the heart of my FATHER- the LOVE I long for is my home eternal!
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.” ~ I Corinthians 1:18-25 (MSG)
