My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all My good pleasure.
Is God in Control?
When you look around at all the problems the world is facing, it’s easy to let fear fill your heart. No matter how much nations talk, war often seems inevitable. Unknown pathogens, corruption, and crime make it easy to wonder if God is really in control.
God Has a Plan
Before creation began, God had a master plan for this universe. He didn’t just wind up creation, then sit back to watch it run down like an old clock. From the beginning, God has been moving the world forward to His conclusion.
We may not understand why God allows one nation to prosper and another to fail. We can’t imagine why He allows evil empires to exist, but He is in control.
Proverbs 21:1 says that God holds the king’s heart in His hand, and He directs it according to His will.
A ruler may have incredible power and seem to be in total control of his country, but God still moves Him as needed to accomplish His plan. A leader may declare his independence from God, but that doesn’t stop God from working. Nothing happens that God has not given His stamp of approval.
His Master Plan
Nothing happens in your life that God hasn’t approved. Just as God accomplishes His master plan in the world, He is accomplishing His master plan in you. You may not see it yet, but God is fulfilling His perfect will for you. He takes pleasure in bringing about His good plan in your life.
If your heart is full of fear or worries about the future, relax; God has things under control. If you are overwhelmed by the direction the world seems to be going, remember God is fulfilling His master plan for creation.
If you have fear and doubts about your own future, remember, God is accomplishing His master plan in your life.
Look at that verse again.
My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all My good pleasure. – Isaiah 46:10
Make these confessions.
God is working in the world around me to accomplish His good will.
God is working in my life to accomplish his good will in me.
I will not fear because God is in control.
I confess my dependence upon Him so He can fulfill His master plan in my life.
