It Can’t Be Stolen 1-28-2011
Jeremiah 29:11 was spoken to the exiles. But even in our exile before we knew God these words were true for us. For whom He called He foreknew His good plans cannot be thwarted. Everything about God in relation to you is a promise. To reconcile a sinner to himself is the patient work of love. Love by its nature will always possess a promise and a hope. A hope as true as the God behind it promises and hope by nature are futuristic because once the substance of the hope or promise arrives then they have ceased. So what I think most people lose when they get caught up in worries and concerns is their future. Psalms 84 says blessed men go through their valleys of weeping. Weeping may last for a night but joy comes in the morning. I would add it even comes in the mourning. You always have a future that cannot be stolen. Why are thou downcast oh my soul, wait for God, whom you shall praise again. Dorean’s future cannot be stolen by wicked men. The thought is laughable. How can men who have no future who live for their belly every moment steal what they don’t know exist? Scott and I will wait patiently for God to coral our enemies and to deliver them to us. 153 fish swam to the net the Lord put before them against all fish behavior. A mother cow never yoked left her calf to deliver the Ark of the Covenant. The future always comes to His beloved children. If you don’t understand this truth and it doesn’t subdue all your fears then you are living like a bastard. Don’t forfeit what cannot be taken from you.
