WFW: Isaiah 55: 8-9


I always keep this verse in my heart. I may not able to memorize it verbatim but the context is very clear to me. When things seems not in accordance to all my plans, this is the first thing that God will impress into my heart followed by what I firmly believe that EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON.

Recently, I went through a lot emotionally. Though it wasn't over yet but I am still hopeful that soon I can get over it and everything will be okay. I was also confronted with my future plans together with my significant other. I am the pessimistic type trying hard to be positive by all means. Though we are working on it but at the back of my mind, it is God's plan that shall prevail. 

"Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails."
(Proverbs 19:21, NIV)

Yes indeed.


I knew that if it is really by His will, everything will work out smoothly. Even at this very moment as I wrote this piece, I can hear God's whisper in my ears "It is not your thoughts nor your ways, It is all MINE".


Not unless, He will grant it out of His Permissive Will instead of His Perfect Will. 


Well, I would still prefer for His Perfect Will, no matter what.


Amen.
