Proverbs 21:30 There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.”

If you spend a little time chewing on this verse, you realize what an amazing statement it is.That statement can only be made about God. Equipped with the understanding of this verse, it seems that there would be no license for doubt or disobedience. When we take the time to study and understand God’s Word, it fosters confidence. Confidence in one that cannot fail. Instead we invest our time studying and gaining understanding in other things which in turn builds our confidence in things that are temporal and frail and sometimes even false and deceptive. Ps.11:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain. Psalm 146:3 Put not your trust in princes, nor  in the son of man, in whom there is no help. Psalm 20:7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. If we really trusted in the Lord we wouldn’t have issues with living for him at work and at school. We wouldn’t find it so hard to define modesty or draw the lines that represent gender. People would see a difference. Our conversation would be clean. We would stand up and stand out. Psalm 40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.  Let’s take confidence in the one that cannot fail and make a difference.
