Our God is Greater...

"For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

These words, no doubt, brought great comfort to Jeremiah. They should bring comfort to us, as well.

Isn't it great to know the Sovereign God of the Universe?

He's in control, He's not worried, He'll accomplish all things according to His own will.

He's not in debt, He's not confused and He's not one of many voices, fighting to be heard.

He is God.

And He's not in a panic about the potential of a government shutdown.

And just in case you're wondering what in the world He's doing, this might be an appropriate answer:

"The LORD nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples." Psalm 33:10


  1. This is the verse of our household right now...thus I noticed the Jer 23:11 but isn't it 29:11? Knowing that HE knows the plan is so comforting!!

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

    One more amen... :)

  3. Yes, it is 29 - thanks, Candice...that's what I get for blogging with a baby in my arms...I am a bit disgusted that once again we passed an extension, btw

  4. ...rather than solve the problem...
