Our sermon is entitled The Plan that Counts and is taken from [esvignore]2 Samuel 17[/esvignore]. Here we find a chapter of tense political maneuvering and a bit of a spy story as Hushai and Ahithophel each give their counsel to the usurper, Absalom. We will learn some things about the certainty of God’s plans, and while its a very simple lesson we will land upon in the end, it is a profound lesson we must be reminded of frequently. Our outline is:
- Ahithophel’s Good Idea
- Hushai’s Better Idea
- Ahithophel’s Death
- God’s Greater Plan
- Who’s plan will you stick to?
