Micah 4:11 “But now *many nations are gathered against you.* They say, “Let her be defiled, let our eyes gloat over Zion!” (4:12) But *they do not know the thoughts of the LORD; they do not understand his plan* , he who gathers them like sheaves to the threshing floor.”
The Bible heavily and continuously discusses the theme of defeating enemies. As you read, you can’t miss nor avoid it all over scripture. It’s actually a doctrine of the great controversy.
We are in the midst of a controversy between God and Satan. All our misfortunes regardless of the source comes from Satan. God saves His people from Satan. Satan plans daily against us and God plans daily in our favour. Each day and person has two plans rolling out…plan from Satan and plan from God.
Our day’s text presents a reality that Satan does plan against us. The many nations gathered against Israel, are actually agents of Satan. Even in our day today, Satan plans against us. Satan plans against us not only through nations, but through people, events, failures, accidents, sickness, heartbreaks, disappointment, discouragement, etc.
The good news is as they (Satan, demons, people and situations) plan against us – God on the other hand is too planning to save us and raise us up. The text reads, ‘they do not know the thoughts and plan of God.’
Daily and all the time – there is a plan for us and a plan against us. Two plans for each one for each moment. God declares in *Jeremiah 29:11* that He has good plans for us. The Bible reveals in *John 10:10* that Satan plans to steal, kill and destroy. Two plans for each one!
Two plans exist for each one of us at each moment and day. Satan and others plan against us and God’s plan in our favour.
Two plans all the time even today…May God’s good plan for us, prevail today in Jesus name. Amen!
