" The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect." Psalm 33:10
This is an interesting verse. When we think about "the nations" we can be overwhelmed with the very thought! Who are the nations that we think about? Most likely those that are in the new the most, so that would be all of them! But "the nations" that concern us the most would be those in the Middle East.
God is not concerned about the plans that they make, or what they say. He doesn't lose sleep over the fact that so and so has nuclear weapons, or that someone else is mad at someone else. His agenda goes on the no consult with one or the other. The truth of the matter is, He can turn them around in a split second, and make them forget what there plans were.
The only plans we need to concern ourselves with are the ones that God made thousands of years ago, before He even sent Jesus to die for us. God knew before He created mankind that we would need to be saved, and that the final plan of justice would occur at the end. He has a bit of unfinished business with the enemy, something to do with locking him up for a very long time?
We are not too far from all of this, and the nations will all fall into God's plan, even if they don't realize who He is. Psalm 33 continues in verse 14 and 15 to say, "From the place of His dwelling He looks On all the inhabitants of the earth; He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works." He is ever present in the affairs of men. I will keep my eyes on Him!
