My Destiny

My Destiny

01 November 2011

Reading: Job 23-24; Mark 11-12


13 Once he has made his decision, who can change his mind? Whatever he wants to do, he does. 14 So he will do to me whatever he has planned. He controls my destiny. (Job 23:13-14 NLT)

Job spoke a lot of truth as he processed through his pain, his grief, and his loss. His conclusions were not always correct because he was working in the dark. He couldn’t see all the factors that bore on his situation. But his theology was pretty solid most of the way through.

When I’m going through things I don’t understand, my processes and conclusions could get pretty weird if I don’t stick to what I know to be true. I’ve got to realize there are factors in the equation I’m not aware of.

I want to think right thoughts, say right words, and leave the results in God’s hands. He knows what’s going on!

My destiny is in the hands of the one who loves me most!


Father, I know you are wise, powerful, and that your every decision and action toward me is motivated by love. Please help me remember that when I can’t see my future and when I can’t understand my present. I’m glad you’re in control of my destiny. Amen.
