The way we interpret the Holy Scripture is determined by our perception of God. One God, who spoke the Word and it was. Creation by His will. He decision, His plan. Most of the Hebrew, Christian and Islamic world will agree with this revelation of God who is Spirit. His plan is unfolding.
“Remember the former things long past,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is no one like Me,
Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things which have not been done,
Saying, ‘My plan will be established,
And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’;
Calling a bird of prey from the east,
The man of My purpose from a distant country.
Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass.
I have planned it, I will certainly do it.” (Isaiah 46:9-11 NASB)
Cannot be clearer than that. God’s plan will be accomplished according to His good pleasure. Surely His will be done. Sadly, most part company failing to believe God’s plan. They lack faith that hopes in the love of God. Instead trusting their own plans, they fail to receive God’s gift of grace, salvation.
“In the exercise of His will He gave us birth by the word of truth, so that we would be a kind of first fruits among His creatures.” (James 1:18 NASB)
Are you still with me, birthed by His word of truth? Then rejoice in the certainty of your faith. Jesus said it was finished, and He is the Word of God. Hallelujah!
God’s plan will be, ask Jonah.
