The counsel of the LORD stands forever, the plans of his heart to all generations…. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. —Psalm 33:11, 21

            Ever have somebody tell you they were going to do something, but they did not do it? Or have you ever said that you were going to do something, but did not do it? Well this is not the case with our Lord. His counsel “stands forever.” His plans will not fail “to all generations.” Our hearts are “glad in Him, because we trust in his holy name.” He always does what He says He will do!

            So many things change in our lives, but our Lord “is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).  He truly is the only constant in our lives and we are “glad in him, because we trust in his holy name.” He is the only one that we can fully trust at all times. This should cause our hearts to greatly rejoice.

            Our Lord has a “race marked out for us” and we are to keep our eyes fixed “on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith” as we run this race (Hebrews 12:1-2). Whatever comes our way we trust Him. Have we lost a job? Trust Him!   Have lost our health? Trust Him! Has death taken our loved one, friend, brother or sister? Trust Him! Does our future look uncertain? Trust Him! Are we going through change of any kind? Trust Him!   He is working our His purposes!

            His plans for you and for me are being worked out as He has done in all previous generations and as He will do now and with all future generations. So let us be glad and keep our eyes fixed on Him. He can be fully trusted at all times. Yes, may we keep running and trust Him for all that we do not understand.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsQmsEE_2-s&list=UUf1NPIFOBwzTLVQiEDnq4Cw&index=8

Dear Father may I keep running the race and gladly trust You for all I do not understand. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. Where else would I go? Only You have the Words of eternal life, only You have all the answers, only You can be fully trusted. So I will trust You and be glad!
