I heard those jokes about telling God your plans to make Him laugh, and i have hear people say you never know what He will do, even though the Bible tells you what He can and will do. I know it appears confusing sometimes, but He is not the author confusion, that’s the other side. He is all about peace.
I realize it tell you to have childlike faith, yet to grow up in Him. It says He will answer prayers but often we don’t see results. It doesn’t mean He didn’t answer, it doesn’t mean we didn’t believe. We have an enemy who derails things. But God is greater.
So I decided to look at some verses. I may want to do it this way but God has His ways. Just for fun well look at what the Bible says about, but God…maybe He has new plans after all.
As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. Genesis 50:20
But God himself will shoot them with his arrows, suddenly striking them down. Psalm 64:7
But it was to us that God revealed these things by His Spirit. For His Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. 1 Corinthians 2:10
My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever. Psalm 73:26
We can make our own plans, but the LORD gives the right answer. Proverbs 16:1
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
But God released Him from the horrors of death and raised him back to life, for death could not keep Him in its grip. Acts 2:24
But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Romans 5:8
