“The counsel of the Lord stands for ever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations.” Psalm 33:11
Isn’t it good to know that God’s counsel isn’t good for just one day and then runs out? Isn’t it good to know that what God says stands forever? God is faithful to His Word. What He has spoken in times past is still His word today. The counsel of His Word transcends centuries and millenniums. His Word is from everlasting to everlasting…and that’s a long time!
I take encouragement from this verse because it tells me that God is faithful to His Word and His Word will always be the same. Isaiah 55:11 puts it this way: “So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
That’s why when you can read a particular scripture that ministers to you regarding a specific need it becomes a God-breathed word to you. That word is life and it will continue to fill you with life, encouragement, and hope as you receive its promise by faith.
God’s Word is good today, tomorrow, and every day after that. The counsel of the Lord will never be outdated, never expire. It is wisdom that is good any time, all the time. It will always lead you into His love and grace because His thoughts are for you.
Rejoice in God’s faithfulness and the ageless counsel of His Word, and know today that He loves you.
