Lamentations 3:37 ” Who can speak and have it happen if the Lord has not decreed it? “

As it tells us in Proverbs, the Lord’s purpose always prevails…for no pivotal event in the course of history happens unless the Lord first ordains it.  And for the human mind this is far too difficult to take in and understand.  But to add to this confusion, the next verse goes on to say, “Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that both calamities and good things come?” (Lam. 3:38)  That’s when we need to be reminded that God’s ways are not our ways, but that God is always in control.  For it tells us in Psalm 33:9-11, “For He spoke, and it came to be; He commanded, and it stood firm.  The Lord foils the plans of the nations; He thwarts the purposes of the people.  But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of His heart through all generations.”
