No Counsel  Against the LORD

As we see the daily news,  we often see  assaults against Christianity  along with all  of its morals  and precepts.     People glory  in immorality  of all sorts.     They basically seem unconcerned  with lies  because lies  can provide “protection”  of various sorts  for their evil desires  —  all sorts of sexual immorality  because everybody’s doing it  —  denying the LORD  as God  because  there are so many beliefs  in this world,  we “should be accepting”  of them all  —  giving thanks  to the LORD of all  for the great things  He has done  because we might be  offending  someone else’s  different beliefs  and values,  etc., etc.

So many different religions,  beliefs,  and cults  use “politically correct” protests  against Christianity  in order  to destroy  all the basics  of Christianity.     And,  in these end days,  they seem  to be holding  the upper hand.

But,  the bottom line is  in what Proverbs 21:30  stated  so long ago,

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

Come Judgment Day,  absolutely no one  will be able  to refute the LORD’s “wisdom”“understanding”,  or  “counsel”.     We don’t fully understand  why the world  wants to be  as evil  as it is.     That doesn’t make any sense  because they are daily condemning  their own selves  with all their evils.     Evil will never stand  in the end.     And yet,  they will persist  to the very end  with their hatred  of good,  decency,  justice,  righteousness,  and all that is holy  in God’s eyes.     They hatefully  and defiantly deny  their Maker  and Redeemer.

Although we see  and experience  the awfulness  of unbelievers,  God wants us  to take comfort  in the eternal truth  that  “There is no wisdom  and no understanding  and no counsel  against the LORD.     For now,  unbelievers may appear victorious  in their fight  against the LORD,  but,  not one  will be a winner  on Judgment Day  when everyone will see  God’s power  and authority  for all eternity.     We need  to remember  that this is talking about  “wisdom”“understanding”,  and “counsel”  that is  “against the LORD”.

May we see the blessedness  of holding  to God’s eternal truths.     Then,  we will say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  all glory  belongs  to You.”

Love,
Margaret
