What really stands forever? This is a question any of us who think about the present state of things and the future will ponder. The Psalmist reflected on this question and wrote:
“The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; he frustrates the
plans of the peoples. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of
his heart to all generations.” (Psalm 33:10-11)
We watch the news and see reports on this or that international gathering of leaders and hear of their plans. What will come of these plans in the long run?
Take a moment to reflect on these two verses. What is the counsel of the Lord? How can you more align yourself with His counsel and plans?
