In the midst of all this it is easy for me to forget something very important- God has this covered.
The Job replied to the LORD:
I know that you can do all things;
no plan of yours can be thwarted.
The LORD Almighty has sworn,
"Surely, as I have planned, so it will be,
and as I have purposed, so it will stand."
Since God has a plan and a purpose for us and these girls we are waiting to hear about, then there is nothing that will be able to keep his plan from happening.
There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan
that can succeed against the LORD.
Not slow social workers, not a broken system, not somebody else's vision of where these kids should go, and not my ideas of what would be best- none of these things will succeed if they are against God's plan.
Many are the plans in a man's heart,
but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.
I had to write this down today for myself, because it is so easy for me to forget these things and start to worry and fret and wonder how everything is going to turn out. I am so glad God is trustworthy, I must keep my eyes on him.
And we know that in all things
God works for the good of those who love him,
who have been called according to his purpose.
