Just think about it, GOD CANNOT BE STOPPED.
This truth alone, will either put you in awe, or cause an incredible amount of anxiety for you, knowing that you can’t do everything in your power to stop your current situation or change your circumstances.
I think we often go through life thinking that we can “create” our own life. That we can design it just how we want it to look; that we can make it look just how we want to. But in all reality, in the end, we actually have nothing to do with it.
And that’s where we have the chance to allow our faith or our fears to carry us.
There is a lot going on in the world where we wonder why God doesn’t intervene in a certain way. Why He allows what He does. We often think He is just sitting back, watching what’s happening, when in reality, He is moving constantly, making others aware that He cannot be stopped, as much as people try to stop Him. In the end, HE WILL WIN. And I find an immense amount of peace in that.
What are you going through today, that makes this day difficult? That makes this day one of the best yet? Do you see God’s hand in it? Well let me tell you. He knows exactly what He’s doing through every single circumstance that I face. And I find my comfort in that.
There has been a lot in my life that I do not understand. I remember having an insane amount of pain after one of my open heart surgeries and I mentally was just crying out to God, why? Please stop this! I can’t do it anymore! The morphine they were giving me wasn’t working like they had hoped, and I kept thinking, why is He allowing this? But little did I know it was preparing me for yet another surgery weeks later. God had a purpose and nothing could stop Him.
On the flip side, I was told for a number of years that I couldn’t have my own children. Well folks, GOD CANNOT BE STOPPED. It the spring of 2014 when we heard the words with regards to pregnancy, “I see no problem with it,” God could not be stopped that day. No medical problem would stop His weaving of HIS ways in our life.
This is why I find great comfort in knowing God cannot be stopped: because my life belongs to Him, He will work out His eternal purposes for me. And nothing or no one can stop Him.
Isn’t that an incredible truth to behold? Especially as we live in a world that seems like it’s spiraling out of control? That doesn’t negate the fact that we still need to pray, but praying helps us gain the mind of Christ – offering our spiritual lives an eternal perspective that is easy to lose sight of amidst our circumstances.
So what are you battling today? What are you waiting on God for? What miracle are you hoping for? Just remember that God cannot be stopped and He will make His glory known, THROUGH YOU, for His eternal purposes will prevail! We will never understand the background work that He is doing on OUR behalf, because He cares and loves us. So always remember, God CANNOT BE STOPPED!
