  • The Failure That Saved A Life
    Tuesday, December 5, 2017
    William Cowper was 32 when he decided to end his life. After several attempts that failed, he tried to hang himself, but was cut down, unconscious but still alive. Then one morning for a reason unknown to him, he reached out for his Bible and opened it up to the Book of Romans. He opened up his heart and received the Lord. His life was changed, and years later he’d write the famous hymn which begins,“God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform.” Cowper was thanking God that all of his own plans failed and only God’s plan came to pass. You need to do the same thing. When your own plans fail, remember the plans of William Cowper. God has something better for you. The way of the flesh is death, but God’s way is life and His will for you is blessing. So, every time your own plan fails, thank God. He’s got something better. As the Lord says, “I know the plans I have for you, plans for welfare and not for calamity, to give you a future and a hope.”
    From Message #1910 - Your Heavenly Pattern and Your Earthly Tapestry
    Scripture: Prov. 16:33
    TODAY'S MISSION - Give thanks today for any of your failed plans that have led to the plans of God being accomplished in your life.
