“God’s plan for man is different from the agenda that man has for himself”
Man has a plan for himself but we must learn to live after a divine order, such that our lives reflect the image and the person of God. We see the scripture say to us there are many devices in the heart of a man but the counsel of the Lord that shall stand.
Proverbs 19:21 There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.
To live by a divine order is to understand the counsel of the Lord for our lives. We need to understand that the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand no matter how much we try. It’s an understanding where we know that the hand of the Lord is upon us even like magicians knew in the days of Pharaoh about Moses
Exodus 8:19 Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, THIS IS THE FINGER OF GOD: and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.
We need the finger of God such that we can confidently move by the power of His Spirit, this understanding will birth an authority in us that we will become fearless trusting the Lord. We can’t actually give expression to the life of God in us without the divine order of God. Therefore, our lives must become a life well spent before the Lord daily that even our steps are ordered by the Lord because we belong to God. All men will then understand and see truly the finger of God in Ife lives, even when men harden their hearts, we see it as a stronghold but God sees it as a means to fulfill His desires for which He is behind the scene, what we need to do is to become a people that trust God well enough that we walk and move after the divine order of His leading.
