Scripture from Deuteronomy 32 caught my attention. We do not know or have power over death but God does know. Job Chapter 14 says that people are born into trouble and “We cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not”.
The chapter reads to say that God knows when he creates us what our purpose is and how much time we have to do it. Job 14:5 says, “Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;”.
The chapter speaks about a person’s destiny, life, and death. We are born into trouble and sometimes it does not matter how hard we try to make something happen, the inevitable happens anyway as if it is meant to be.
Sometimes God will allow us to intervene and sometimes He has another plan. We can be encouraged by knowing that God is in control and that His will will be done in the end. God has a way of turning bad things around to make good things happen. We just have to have faith that God is in control and stay close to Him in prayer to see it.
