One thing I love about this mini Bible study is discovering how the scriptures speak so clearly for themselves. I need merely highlight what I see, and understanding comes. Psalm 33 reminds me that God is God.
“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 ESV).
His plans stand forever, and we cannot change them. Everything might look like our world is out of control, but that’s simply not true. He made us, he rules over it all, and he watches over us to intervene for our lives.
“The Lord looks down from heaven, he sees all the children of man. From where he sits enthroned he looks out on all the inhabitants of the earth, he who fashions the hearts of them all and observes all their deeds” (verses 13-15).
“Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, that he may deliver their soul from death and keep them alive in famine” (verses 18-19).
In all the craziness and distractions that come my way, I am so glad he is God.
