How to use thwarted in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    I know you can do all things and no plan of yours can be thwarted. That's what (Job 42 : 2) says. And that infers, whatever God has destined to be must prevail. But may I tell you this, when God says that you will be great in life it doesn't mean you won't experience failure, misfortune, setback or thingss like that. Let's take biblical Joseph as a case study. Because, he's a perfect example of what I'm talking about. He (Joseph) was destined to be or become a ruler or leader. But, prior to the manifestation of his destiny. He was challenged, maltreated and even imprisoned. However, because God's plan cannot be thwarted. After all said and done. He finally ruled and became a prime minister/general overseer in a foreign country (Egypt). Having known that, what do I want to publicize in essence? I'm just publicizing that, regardless of whatever you are undergoing or passing through presently. For the fact, you are destined for greatness. You must excel and shine like a star that you are meant to be or become. Yes of course, destiny can only be delayed for awhile. But come what may, it cannot be denied. I mean, destiny must have its way even against all odds.
