His mind concerning me remains unchanged.

Job 23:13-14 "Nevertheless, his mind concerning me remains unchanged, and who can turn him from his purposes? Whatever he wants to do, he does. So he will do for me all he has planned. He controls my destiny."

Job is speaking her of God’s sovereign plan and control over us. God knows the purpose of our lives and what it takes for us to fulfill it. He knows what we need to experience and learn in order to be who we need to serve Him best. He knows best how to build our character. He knows best how to instill within us godliness. Each of us is different and requires different experiences. Each of us has different roles to play in God’s kingdom and so the Lord has to deal with us accordingly. Some of us require great maturity of faith and some of us less maturity. The Lord knows what we don’t know and so we must yield to His lordship over us.

The Lord does not change His mind about us. He will always move us in the direction He desires us to go. We must be willing to be lead though. We can refuse to go where He is taking us. But if we allow Him to have His way with us, He will make sure that we will get to where He needs us to be so that we can do what He desires us to do.

No one can keep God from doing what He wants to do. God has a purpose for everything He does. We may not always understand it, but we aren't meant to. He sees the whole picture and knows what needs to be done in order for us to participants in His plan. All He asks of us is to trust Him as He leads us forward.

Are you letting the Lord lead you, or are you resisting Him? The plans the Lord has for you are good. You will never be happier or more content in life than you will be when you are allowing the Lord to fulfill His purposes for you. Don’t let anything or anyone keep you from following the Lord.
