His Prevailing Purpose

I know that You can do everything,
And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You.”  Job 42:2

Last week I was thinking about how God can do anything and now here we are at knowing God can do everything.  🙂

Lord, thank You for doing everything to show us that You love us and want to be with us forever. And here’s a simple poem . . .

No Withholding

There is only One
who can do everything

source – nationalgeograpic.com

only One whose purpose
will prevail

only One worthy
of our worship

only One from whom nothing
will be withheld.


  1. Wonderful simple poem today, Sis Deb–and perfect picture!! I am beyond glad and grateful that His purposes and plans will prevail–even when I “think” I’d prefer something different. “Father knows BEST!” God bless you as you go about your terrific Tuesday–much love, sis Caddo Delight

  2. Only One. yep. totally agree. Just finished reading Job. Some good stuff there if you can get past the junk.

  3. He is the ONLY ONE!! He is all knowing and I am so glad I serve Him…

  4. Lovely & true!

    Blessings ~ Wendy

  5. very nice

  6. “I know that You can do everything,
    And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You.” Job 42:2

    Job makes it though this horrendous trial which probably lasted for months and has a powerful revelation. Someone might say, “Did Job’s revelation justify the deep pain he suffered?”

    Job seemed to think so, but even more importantly, millions of believers throughout history have been comforted and blessed by reading the book of Job.

    Great poem. Where to next? Huh? Huh?

  7. Keeping us in the right perspective with this one, aren’t you? Love how you paired this with that awesome photo…

  8. Only One . . . Only You, Lord, only You! You have the only answer to my every need. You are the only One who can help me and see me through my every need. You are the only One who wants the very, very best for me and will so order my life that eventually You will get me to the place of perfection and I shall be with You forver!

    You ALONE are worthy of my praise, my devotion, my yieldedness.

    What an amazing self-giving, one and only God!

  9. Amen! He is Lord and He will rule! He does rule and nothing is outside of His power.

  10. I am joining you in being thankful and joyful for His purposes and plans that will prevail! 🙂 He is the BEST! God bless you and praying your Tuesday was terrific and special, just because you’re His! love you!

  11. Laughing about the junk in Job, Pastor Bill. 🙂 It had been awhile since I had read it , so was fun finding the good stuff! God bless you as you follow the God who does everything!

  12. I am so glad you serve Him too, dear Desiray . ..and through that service we are all blessed and strengthened! God bless you as you worship your only One!

  13. God bless you as you see Him as your lovely and true One today!

  14. God bless you, Terry, and be your everything today!

  15. Thank you Mr. Larry for showing yet another wonderful out come of the book of Job .. how many people were blessed by it throughout history! When I told a counselor friend about doing the book of Job, she said she loved Job. 🙂 I hadn’t heard of anyone loving it before, so that helped me too!
    Well, I need to go back to the New Testament next, to Titus! Only it’s very short so then I’ll be back to the Old Testament and into the Psalms for a long time!
    God bless you and thank you for encouraging me along!

  16. I’m glad you liked the photo, Melody .. since you are so good at taking them! Some posts are hard to match a photo to . .this was one of those for me. God bless you and your perspective today!

  17. I love your comment . ..a whole song of praise and worship to my ears! God bless you as you yield to your one and only amazing God, mentor Angela! love and prayers!

  18. “nothing is outside of His power” . .love that, Pastor J! Thank you and God bless you!

  19. Thank you for being a little beam of cyber-space light wherever you go!

  20. I love when people take God out of the box! He is soooooo much bigger and better than that! Great post, Deb. Inspiring!
    God Bless You!

  21. Oh you blessed me so much tonight! Thank you, Lady Dei, for your faith and love of Him! God bless you!

  22. Okay . .that got me teary. Guess I was feeling my batteries were running low today! You just helped charge me up! Thank you!

  23. Nobody bigger, greater, stronger, mightier, more loving, more forgiving, more caring, more……..The list could go on and on and on! He is the matchless ONE! He is the ONLY ONE! Thank you so much, Encouraging Debbie! There is a praise in this house! May the Lord bless you! Love you!


  24. We just have to praise Him, don’t we? 🙂 God bless you and your ever ready praise for Him. You inspire us and lead us into a deeper love and worship of our God who does is all! love and prayers for your worship post tomorrow!

  25. While I’m nothing like Job and I can’t say I’ve met anyone who is – I have been and do know many like his “comforters”.
    Beautiful poem and reminder, sweet friend!
    He does know what He’s doing and sometimes it’s best just to be silent! 😉

  26. God bless you, gracious one, as you trust Him to do what we can’t! Now for me just to remember the “be silent” part. 🙂 love and prayers for your night to be full of His peace and grace! hugs and no bugs!

  27. Our minds cannot begin to understand what it really means to say that “Our God controls everything”. Our finite minds can only attempt to grasp its full meaning and application to our lives. Lord bless you.

  28. God bless you, Pastor Rob, as you trust Him and His control in your life! Thank you for your teaching and your faith!
