“The counsel of the LORD stands forever, the plans of his heart to all generations” (Psalm 33:11, ESV).

            Psalm 33 calls on God’s people to lift up their voices in praise (vv.1-3), for God is worthy and has done mighty deeds (vv.4-9), especially in His wondrous work of creation.  And the Creator is sovereign over His creation.  He accomplishes His purposes, and overrules the will of men (v.10).  In this context, we look with awe on the sureness and permanence of God’s design.  This is a great comfort to those who rely on the Lord.

            God’s will accomplish His design for this world.  When life seems uncertain, we can take comfort in the sureness and security of God’s unshakable wisdom and almighty power.  What He has promised, He will bring to pass.  Redemption is absolutely assured for all who trust in Jesus Christ.  God’s Word is the rock of security amid the storms of this life.
