“There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.”
We tend to think that we know what is best for us; and if not, our flesh tends to believe that those closest to us have the answers. What we forget is that, even in the best intentions, the hearts of the people we love and trust are just as deceitful as our own.
“The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.”
God knows our hearts as well as those we seek counsel from and rather than leave us on our own, He provides the Solution.
“The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.”
His Word has been proven to be true because He is the Truth.
His Word has been preserved because He was and is and always will be.
His Word has been purified because He is Holy.
“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”
No other book can even begin to compare to the Truth that the Word of God contains because the Scriptures contain Him. It is within His Words that we learn Who He is. We discover what He has done, what He is doing right now, and what He will do. His promises are true because His grace and mercy confirms those that have already come to pass.
“For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.”
Rather than seeking the answers in all the wrong places, we can choose to find the Answer to every problem we will ever face within the glorious pages of the Word of God.
The Word is the Solution regardless of what question you have today.
