But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations. (Psalms 33:11)
No one can thwart the plans of God. He is Almighty. From the beginning, he weilds all power and everything, living and nonliving are subject to him. The Psalmist exhorts all in this manner:
Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the people of the world revere him. For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm. (Psalm 33:8, 9)
The Apostle Paul writing to the Colossians says this regarding Jesus,
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. (Colossians 1:15-17)
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. (Matthew 28:18)
As a believer in Jesus Christ, you must always remember that you serve an Almighty God. All authority in heaven and on earth is with Jesus. Even though circumstances in your life say otherwise, he can change everthing in a moment. He can change rules for you. He can make unyielding officials yielding. He can change governments for your sake. You are precious to him. If your plans are his original plans, he will make a way. It's only a matter of time. Hang in there. Keep praying. God bless.
Great exortation! What an awesome God we serve! Everything that exists, seen and unseen, is subject to His awesome power! I am a recipient of His divine intervention as it relates to changing the rules or laws for the benefit of his children. In the year 1993, I came to America from Haiti with just a visa which eventually expired. I did not know how I was going to be able to update or upgrade my status to "legal immigrant." In restropect, I am grateful to have had a work permit which I had to renew every year, but I was disheartened at times because I was still considered as an illegal immigrant in the country. Someone I knew had arranged a business deal for me to marry a US woman so I could obtain my green card, and I initially agreed to do it because I was desperate. But deep down, I knew this was wrong and the Lord would not be pleased if I were to go through with it. Therefore, I decided to back off and stop the process. I am so glad the Lord gave me the grace to obey Him in this regard. At that point I began to pray that the Lord would change the laws and bring about a new law that would make it possible for me to become legal in this country. It took a few years for the Lord's answer to my prayers to materialize, but it surely materialized in the end. A movement started within the Haitian Community protesting against the fact that certain immigrants are automatically eligible for a green card once they arrive in the US, and we Haitians get sent back if we are not documented properly. The movement grew stronger and stronger and made it to Congress, and finally a bill was produced which was signed by President Bill Clinton. I am happy to say that today I am a US citizen by the divine intervention of Almighty God! To Him alone be all honor, praise and glory now and forever! Amen.
