Planning without God is futile. If the Architect and Master Builder of life is absent, what are you building? - Futility - TouchPoints

Planning without God is futile. If the Architect and Master Builder of life is absent, what are you building?

Isaiah 14:26-27I have a plan for the whole earth, for my mighty power reaches throughout the world. The Lord Almighty has spoken—who can change his plans? When his hand moves, who can stop him?

Trying to stop God’s plans—or run from them—is futile. God alone knows the future, so who can plan for the future better than he?

Nahum 1:11Who is this king of yours who dares to plot evil against the Lord?

Isaiah 41:11See, all your angry enemies lie there, confused and ashamed. Anyone who opposes you will die.

Psalm 76:5-8The mightiest of our enemies have been plundered. They lie before us in the sleep of death. No warrior could lift a hand against us. When you rebuked them, O God of Jacob, their horses and chariots stood still. No wonder you are greatly feared! Who can stand before you when your anger explodes? From heaven you sentenced your enemies; the earth trembled and stood silent before you.

Jeremiah 50:24Listen, Babylon, for I have set a trap for you. You are caught, for you have fought against the Lord.

Fighting against God is futile. Many people are confident in their earthly strength and power, but compared to the power that made the universe, they are insignificant.

Ecclesiastes 4:7-8I observed yet another example of meaninglessness in our world. This is the case of a man who is all alone, without a child or a brother, yet who works hard to gain as much wealth as he can. But then he asks himself, “Who am I working for? Why am I giving up so much pleasure now?” It is all so meaningless and depressing.

Toil is futile. Work without purpose is activity without accomplishment, a tree without fruit.
