He is Unthwartable

 “I know that you can do all things;
no purpose of yours can be thwarted…”

Job 42:2

 

When is the last time your plans were thwarted? Given any day and our plans can be redirected, realigned and reworked.  But not God’s plans. No purpose of God’s can be thwarted.  He is un-thwartable!  We cannot mess up His purposes. Job declared God’s un-thwartableness after he had been through some of life’s worst tragedies.  He lost his possessions, his children and his health. Surely there was some mistake and God’s purposes for Job got mixed up with someone else’s blueprints – right?

Not according to Job.  As he wrestled with understanding why this happened, God made it clear that His plans and purposes are much bigger than what we can see. He is in control of the entire universe. Nothing slips through His fingers. Nothing messes up His plans. He is able to bring redemption from even the worst of situations.  His ways are not our ways. No one can take away the purpose He has set out for us.
