The Journey with Ron Moore

Firm Forever | Psalm 33:6-11

Psalm 33:6-11 By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth. He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses. Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the people of the world revere him. For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm. The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples. But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.

The absolute power of God is seen first and foremost in creation. God did not make something out of something. He created the world out of nothing (ex nihilo). He spoke the world into existence. He said, “Let there be . . .” and there was. If Genesis 1:1 were the only thing we knew about God, it would be more than enough to fear and revere him.

God, however, did not set the world in motion and then back away to watch it spin. He is intimately involved in the affairs of man. God’s sovereign plans “stand firm forever.” Governments and individuals make great plans; God frustrates the plans that are not in line with his.

Our confidence is this: “The plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.” In the end, he wins; and we get to march in the victory parade with him!

Father, thank you for the confidence found in your sovereign power. Thank you that no person or thing can alter your eternal plan. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
