“Stopping the Lord God’s Plan”

The history of the world, as recorded in the bible tells us man has been on the earth for 6000+ years. That is a long time for the Lord God to put up with us.
Now the Lord God had a plan and certainly over 6,000 years of human participation in His plan, how often has the Lord had to change course? In other words, how far off of God’s plan has man taken us?
We are exactly where the Lord knew we would be. We are at the exact millisecond of where the Lord planned we would be.
The bible is filled with examples where man might have thrown God’s timing off.

Please read the following verses to see one of these events.

Ex 1:15-2:10

15 The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah, 16 “When you help the Hebrew women in childbirth and observe them on the delivery stool, if it is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, let her live.” 17 The midwives, however, feared God and did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do; they let the boys live. 18 Then the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and asked them, “Why have you done this? Why have you let the boys live?”19 The midwives answered Pharaoh, “Hebrew women are not like Egyptian women; they are vigorous and give birth before the midwives arrive.”20 So God was kind to the midwives and the people increased and became even more numerous. 21 And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families of their own. 22 Then Pharaoh gave this order to all his people: “Every boy that is born you must throw into the Nile, but let every girl live.”

Chapter 21

1 Now a man of the house of Levi married a Levite woman, 2 and she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him for three months. 3 But when she could hide him no longer, she got a papyrus basket for him and coated it with tar and pitch. Then she placed the child in it and put it among the reeds along the bank of the Nile. 4 His sister stood at a distance to see what would happen to him.5 Then Pharaoh’s daughter went down to the Nile to bathe, and her attendants were walking along the river bank. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her slave girl to get it. 6 She opened it and saw the baby. He was crying, and she felt sorry for him. “This is one of the Hebrew babies,” she said.7 Then his sister asked Pharaoh’s daughter, “Shall I go and get one of the Hebrew women to nurse the baby for you?”8 “Yes, go,” she answered. And the girl went and got the baby’s mother. 9 Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this baby and nurse him for me, and I will pay you.” So the woman took the baby and nursed him. 10 When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him Moses, saying, “I drew him out of the water.”

Do you understand what just happened? Pharoah was trying to get rid of all the men who might give him trouble. (He felt he could keep the females under his control) Every measure he undertook to kill the baby boys was thwarted by God or God’s people,
And of all things, the baby boy he would have most wanted to kill, Moses, is raised in Pharoah’s household by Pharoah’s daughter. Indeed, Moses is Pharaoh’s step-grandchild.
Brothers and sisters, we are much better off being part of God’s plan than trying to stop it. What God says either has been, is being, or will be completed. Little old you and I will not change anything about that plan.
Indeed, we have a choice. We can fight God’s plan or get on board with His plan.

Perhaps you remember this older song, with a subtitle of the gospel train. How many of you remember this?

Get On Board (The Gospel Train)

Cedarmont Kids

Get on board, little children

Get on board, little children Get on board, little children

There’s room for many-a-more

I hear the train a-coming’

I hear it close at hand

I hear those car wheels rumblin’

And rollin’ through the land

Get on board, little children

Get on board, little children

Get on board, little children

There’s room for many-a-more

I hear the train a-coming

She’s coming round the curve

She’s loosened all her steam and brakes

Straining every nerve

Get on board, little children

Get on board, little children

Get on board, little children

There’s room for many-a-more

The fare is cheap

And all can go

The rich and poor are there

No second class aboard the train…

Get on board, little children

Get on board, little children

Get on board, little children

There’s room for many-a-more

Have a tremendous day in the Lord,

Let everything that has breath (this includes you) Praise and thank the Lord.

Be Blessed,

Be a Blessing;

Amen
