Bigger Than Circumstance

God’s plan is not a game of chance
Nor thwarted by mere circumstance
The dreamer cannot dream away
What God hath said of judgement day
Nor can the schemer with flawed scheme
Usurp I AM, nor we esteem
Our understanding better than
God’s wise and providential plan

God’s plan unfolds in spite of us
There is no flippant ‘just because’
Where Love and mercy, hope and grace
Supersedes evil’s dying place
And Faith is our sole defense
No one exceeds Omnipotence
His changeless Charter bigger than
The bravest brainchild of a man

God’s plan is oft misunderstood
We cannot always see the good
As we the face-value assay
Of circumstance; of gold and gray
But God, before the days of man
Knew every tittle of His plan
We who are wise should place our trust
In He who holds our frames of dust

 Many, LORD my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare. Ps. 40:5

But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations. Ps. 33:11

LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago. Isa. 25:1

Yesterday our message was entitled the Perfect Plan; its 'messenger' a young, 'new' member in the congregation; Andreas Dimond who moved here from Germany. Listen here to be taught and encouraged! 
You can click on the links to previous messages as well. We are blessed to have a great variety of godly speakers at our church, in many stages/ages of life!
