We are talking different things. Once again I know who God is and have a relationship with him but I don’t know know all the details and workings he has in this world. I do know that he wants a good relationship with us and for us to have a good relationship with each other through his plan for relationships.
I’m not claiming to know the mind of God. I have a relationship with my wife and I know who she is. I know she wants what’s best for our family and for us to have good relationships but I do not know what she is going to do or say next.
What you typed is a perfect example of submitting to Gods will. Even when things don’t go our way... and even if we think of a plan that’s good... and it doesn’t go our way? God is still in control and we need to accept that it’s part of his plan. This does NOT mean we are to be apathetic in life. It means we are to take action best we can and let God do the rest and trust the outcome.
Matt 16:21-23 and 1 thessalonians 2:17-18 come to mind on having a good plan yet it’s not Gods plan
