Divine Intervention and Destiny – February 17 Inspiration

at

Divine intervention and destiny. I wonder how many times in our lives events have happened, behind the scenes and unknown to us, that are examples of divine intervention. Bad things diverted away from us, good things directed toward us. We can allow events we’re aware of to shape our lives, for good or bad. We can choose to overcome negative things, and change for the better. We can also choose to use the positive things to further improve our lives. Regardless of our awareness of events that have happened beyond our control, it’s still our choice how we respond when we are aware of them.

 

 

Here is your inspiration for today…

 

“Lord, thank You that You have me in the place

You want me just now…

even if I got here through wrong choices

or indifference or even rebellion,

yet You knew my mistakes and sins before I ever existed,

and You worked them into Your plan to draw me to Yourself,

to mold and bless me, and to bless others through me.

 

Thank You that even if I’m here through the ill will

or poor judgment of other people,

all is well; for in Your sovereign wisdom,

You are at work to bring about good results

from all those past decisions,

those past events beyond my control–

good results both for me and for others.

 

So I rest in the fact that You have me

in this place for this day,

and I praise You that You will faithfully guide me

throughout life to just where You want me to be,

as I seek do Your will.”

–Ruth Myers in “31 Days of Praise”

My reflections:

I am thankful for God’s divine intervention, on many occasions  I know about because there’s no other explanation for the outcome, especially when I survived a near-death experience.

I’m thankful God turns things around for our good, even when other people meant to harm us or circumstances indicated things should have turned out otherwise.

~~*~~

So what are YOUR thoughts?

Do you believe in divine intervention, or have you experienced it in your life?

Do you agree you don’t have to allow your history to decide your destiny?

    There have been times when I’ve been ‘saved’ from making bad decisions and choices – and I am always grateful for this divine intervention. I so agree that your history does not have to decide your destiny

    Nope, I believe we are in charge of our own destinies. We make stuff happen for ourselves.

    I am not a huge believer in divine intervention. However, I do believe that some people come into your life to aid you at the roughest time in your life.

    I would like to believe that I have witnessed this a couple of times in my life. It’s really amazing what God can do to help protect us from harm. Such a good read, thank you!

    If you don’t mind me asking what was your near death experience, I believe in destiny but not sure about divine intervention.

    I totally agree with this. That’s why I really believe in God. I really felt that he saves me a dozen times in bad things supposedly going to happen.

    Love God and always Pray with your heart.
    Prayer is the most powerful weapon we have.

    I am a true believer of Divine Intervention, Karen, because I have been saved far too many times in road mishaps where other drivers have been responsible or my tire has burst despite being driven back from the Service Center.

    I believe God has a bigger and better plan for me than I have for myself and wants to make sure I live long enough to complete it.

    When things are going badly it’s very hard to not think you’re destined for failure. It take a lot of work mental and physical to get yourself out of that mindset and to stay there

    I think there has been divine intervention at some moments of my life that I can’t explain any other way some might say luck

    God has been my divine intervention for so long now. There are things he has saved me from that I know about and I’m sure there are many that I don’t know about.

    I believe that history does impact our future, even if indirectly. I believe that our history can make us stonrg and of course potentially changes the way we look at our future.

    I’m not sure how I call it, but I strongly believe that “everything happens for a reason”, which is a way of divine intervention.

    I just experienced this many times when something that appeared to be an issue or bad situation was eventually the best thing that happened.

    I do believe we are always being guided by the spiritual world. Yes, I believe that divine intervention is happening, through us, not to us. It is the voice intuition that we chose one direction or another and find we were saved from otherwise unfavorable circumstance. I was at a workshop last night and the young man shared an incredible story of how the energy of the crystals he was carrying in his car somehow guided him in the “wrong” direction, which ended up being the right one as it turned out. I’ve had many amazing interventions happen in my own life as well, especially to do with my health. My strong belief in my spiritual world guides has led me to and away from some fantastical experiences in my life. As we all have a destiny path we are following, I know that our history is one mere step on the journey and it does not have to dictate our ultimate destiny. We always have free will to choose.

    I don’t believe things happen to us. I believe we are guided to look, examine & choose & that becomes our course or destiny.
