Psalm 33:11,22 NLT The Lord’s plans stand firm forever; His intentions can never be shaken. Let Your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in You alone.
33:11 “The Lord’s plans stand firm forever.” Are you frustrated by inconsistencies you see in others or even in yourself? God is completely trustworthy – His intentions never change. The Bible promises that whatever is good and perfect comes to us from the Creator who never changes (James 1:17). When you wonder if there is anyone whom you can trust, remember that God is completely consistent. Let Him counsel you.
We must wait quietly for God’s salvation and surrender ourselves under the yoke of His discipline. Standing firm in faith in the plans God has made for our lives. He is the One who keeps us from complete destruction. He is our inheritance because we put our hope in Him. Nothing can ever happen to us without the Lord’s permission. He never changes as He is a God of absolutes whose scales never lose their adjustment. With Him a pound is a pound; right is right; and wrong is wrong. Being believers in Jesus Christ gives us spiritual backbone. Having gained confidence in the face of all difficulty we can feel He assures us the fulfillment of a divine promise that God makes. This is because He is the “Unchanging One” and feels that we’re not consumed.
