It’s true! And even though sometimes it feels like things are taking their time, or plans are not happening, things are always, always, always in motion. Think about a musical or a play, behind the scenes is usually even more busy than what’s happening ON the stage. So right now, as you are reading these very words, God is busy at work behind the scenes of your life, working and weaving everything together according to his wonderful plan. Below is the architect’s blueprint by Walt Disney Imagineering for the Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom, Disney World. Just as this castle was meticulously planned before it was built… the blueprint for YOUR life has already been planned, not only before you were born, but before God even said “let there be light.” Ha ha I feel the little girl in me getting a just a little bit excited about this pic…
And you know what? And once the plan is in place, there is actually nothing that can stop it. I’ve been sick with a silly throat infection the last three days, and last night as I was laying in bed, eight words just flashed into my mind like lightning. Nothing can stop God’s plan for my life. So what does this mean for us? We all have dreams and desires in our hearts, we’re believing and declaring, and often waiting for things to come to pass, but what we can see is “the stage”. We can’t see “behind the scenes”. Anyway, last night as those eight words of truth exploded into my mind, they took over every negative thought, doubt and question and released a flood of hope and encouragement. So in addition to coughing and spluttering, I was also very encouraged last night! And I pray that as you read these words the same thing will happen to you. May be filled with fresh hope today! Xx
Did you realise, without you even thinking about it, the sun rose this morning?
Nothing could stop it.
And guess what, it’s going to set tonight. Nothing can stop it.
Think about the last beach you went to… even though you’re long gone,
those waves are still coming in. Nothing can stop them.
In Winter, the snow is going to fall. Nothing can stop it.
As the rain and the snow come down from heaven…
And do not return to it without watering the earth…
Making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater…
So is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will NOT return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:10)
So just like nothing can stop the sun rising, or setting, or the waves coming in, or the seasons changing… NOTHING can stop His plan for your life! It might seem slow in coming to pass but…
So be encouraged today okay. Things are happening! Behind the scenes, right at this very moment, God is busy at work, preparing, planning, weaving and working things together so you can be released into the glorious destiny he has for you. There is no other day like today, and something amazing is awaiting you.
Always cheering you on… Nat x
Ps… here is what the Cinderella Castle looks like after being built… from the blueprint.
Pretty amazing hey.
