Was God taken by surprise that hardhearted Thutmoses III was the Pharoah of Egypt when Moses led Israel out of that nation?
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Rise up early in the morning and present yourself before Pharaoh and say to him…But for this purpose I have raised you up, to show you My power, so that My name may be proclaimed in all the earth. (Exodus 9:13, 16)
Was God taken by surprise when eight year old Josiah took the throne over Israel in 640 BC?
“Behold, a son shall be born to the house of David, Josiah by name, and he shall sacrifice on you the priests of the high places who make offerings on you, and human bones shall be burned on you.” (1 Kings 13:2 — this prophecy was spoken 300 years earlier.)
Okay, then was God taken by surprise when Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton became –what looks like– their respective party’s nominees for President?
My prayer today:
Lord, I pray that Your redemptive purposes and divine plans are fulfilled by whomever becomes the next President of the United States.
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for America.
