NOTHING stands against the Lord!

NOTHING stands against the Lord!

We humans are odd creatures. We see schemes and plans designed to take down God’s plans and we fret, fume, and worry.


Do we not realize the power of Almighty God? Do we forget that He knows everything – including the plans against Him? Do we ignore the truth that He is present everywhere all the time?

Not consciously, I don’t think. But we do think from a human perspective, knowing that sometimes the plans against us come to fruition and the hurt is real.

Never fear, Believer. NO wisdom, NO understanding, NO plan can stand up against our God!

Read how other versions translate this verse:
“No wisdom, discernment or counsel succeeds against ADONAI.” (Complete Jewish Bible)

“No matter how much you know or what plans you make, you can’t defeat the Lord.” (Contemporary English Version)

“All your brilliant wisdom and clever insight will be of no help at all if the Lord is against you.” (The Passion Translation)

Is that reason to worship or what?

Now…. we must be careful to know God’s will and plan. We don’t get to project our wants and desires onto Him. Nope. Not good. Instead, we must allow HIS will to permeate us.

When your world seems filled with drama unfolding in scary ways, recall these words. Speak them aloud. Tell the atmosphere (and all the spirits in it) the truth about the situation: God will not fail. Ever.
