No Counsel  Against the LORD

All sorts  of people live  as if  there is  no LORD.     They live in  any and every sin  that strikes  their fancy.     And…….  they really think  they’re smart  in doing so.     They perceive themselves  as being  in control  of their lives  —  “in-the-know”  about the intelligent,  satisfying way  to get what they want  in life  —  and clever  in being able  to get the better  of any higher power,  if there is  such a thing.

They love  having power  over those they consider “dumb”  in some way  or another.     And,  their lives  are consumed  with efforts  to make  a great name  for themselves,  as they grow  in self-esteem.

They don’t have time  to deeply consider  all the powerful works  of God Almighty  —  like all  of creation  and the long history  of what God has done  to perfectly fulfill  all  of His prophecies  of a Savior  from sin.     As they are sure  of being able  to get everything  they want,  they are clueless  that God’s eternal word  has already said  in Proverbs 21:30,

There is  no wisdom  and no understanding
And no counsel  against the LORD.

No matter how wise  they imagine themselves  to be,  their  “wisdom“,  “understanding“,  and “counsel”  are ridiculously puny  and stupid  in comparison  to God’s  “wisdom“,  “understanding“,  and “counsel“.     They will never  get the better  of God.

Because we live  in a world  of people striving  to be arrogantly superior  to everyone else,  we need  to be aware  that no matter what sort  of worldly status  they seem to attain,  God our Savior  is still  in actual control  —  always has been and always will be.

Resting  in the eternal truths  of God,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  it is comforting  to know  that You  are always  in control  of everything  in this world.     In You  we trust.”

Love,
Margaret
