“There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.” (Proverbs 19: 21)
God’s direction, guidance, counsel, is reliable and unmoving. It is the law to all things and it does not roll over for human machinations and argument and opinions. The Truth is the self-sustaining infinite. It is that which is and which necessarily acts. It is clear and clean and simple, based on the Principle that God is All and that All is Love.
Individuals may seem to come to cross purposes or misunderstandings. They may be confused or resentful or fearing. These devices of a man’s heart may appear to be many and ever-changing. We may seem to live at the whim of moods, emotions, circumstances, but these accusations against our serenity cannot stand. The counsel of the Lord, His blessing and His law of goodness and immortal Life, can’t be shaken or lost, even temporarily.
And the good news is that this Truth lives in each of our hearts naturally. When we yield to this fact, we naturally conquer those flimsy and unattractive and unnecessary “devices” of human reasoning, opinion, and false and lowered expectations. God’s word is in our heart, and its simple sweetness is a power for us that we can always and immediately claim, feel, and live.
