People Plot In Vain

People Plot In Vain

You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David: ” ‘Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain?  Acts 4:25  (NIV)


God uses His servant to speak with the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit.  Long years ago He speaks of people raging along in vain.  Entire nations of people just don´t get the point.  They fail to understand what God above has been trying to tell us.  In their shortcomings they manage to fulfill prophecy. Some even manage to kill the Son of God.  They do exactly what God knew they would do with Jesus.

God sending His Son was just what is needed.  It is His plan to save us. Some People missed the chance to come to, know and worship Jesus Christ.  God knew.  He foretold of these kinds of people.  But can we place it all in the past?  Or does prophecy live on?  Do the words of God live on?  Are we aware that we too could slip into the wrong side of this prophecy still today?

Is it possible that we could still march forward each to our imagined outcomes?  Could we still miss the fact that God will not be proved wrong?  What does prophecy tell us of the hearts and agendas of people in our latter times?  Where do we want to fit into the picture of people and nations who can still plot in vain?


Dear Lord,

We know that people can still blunder along without care for where You want our hearts to be.  Please guard us against this tendency.  Help us come to You now and always we pray!
