Evil Plans Will Not Prevail

Nothing goes by without God knowing about it. God knows all, sees all and hears all. He knows about the people at school who talk behind everyone’s back, the boss who won’t give his employees a break and the neighbors from hell. He is constantly tuned in to what is happening in our lives.

The plans of the wicked, no matter how big they are, will not succeed because God has the last word. Proverbs 23:12 says, “The Lord preserves those with knowledge, but He ruins the plans of the treacherous” (NLT).

As Christians, we have nothing to fear when the enemy strikes us. Whether our troubles stem from relational stress, financial burdens or sickness, God cares about what we encounter and He allows everything to happen for a reason. Any plans Satan has for us will not prevail because we belong to God. This should drive us every day to live for God despite what we come up against.

God has the power to change our circumstances no matter what they might be. He is always ready to turn evil into good and a test into a testimony. There is nothing in this world that God cannot use for His glory. With God in control of every aspect of our lives we can always expect that in the end, victory belongs to Him.
