Resting on the very Word of God

The counsel of the LORD stands forever,the plans of His heart from generation to generation. ~Psalm 33:11

Yesterday I shared how my name was found resting on the name of God: Jehovah-Sabaoth, meaning the Lord of Armies.

In the midst of a lot going on at the conference, the voice of God whispered louder than the collective voices of 600 women attending. Amazing how His whispers to our hearts can drown out the masses.

One sweet whisper was a scripture He gave me from a pile of hundreds of verses.

Proverbs 19:21, Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails.

This is truth. Not circumstances. Not the journey. Not the outcome. The truth is God's sovereignty prevails. Or one could say His will is superior in strength, power, or influence; triumphant; wins out. God's will is predominant.

For this I am utterly grateful. I'd love to hear your verse from SS, or one that has spoken to your heart recently.

The mind of man plans his way, but the LORD directs his steps. ~Proverbs 16:9

The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. ~Zephaniah 3:17
