Evening Meditation 12-9-16

The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.
11 The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The plans of His heart to all generations.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalm 33:10-12

How are we God’s inheritance?

  1. In that He created us because He wanted “family”, children with whom He could have intimate communion; and He put a lot of rich potential in us… Hope that’s close enough to get me a B+ 🙂

    • It is better than close enough. I love the thought that God gave us to Jesus as His inheritance because Jesus wanted us more than all the riches of Heaven. He traded Heaven’s throne for us!
      “I will declare the decree:
      The Lord has said to Me,
      ‘You are My Son,
      Today I have begotten You.
      8 Ask of Me, and I will give You
      The nations for Your inheritance,
      And the ends of the earth for Your possession. Psalm 2:7,8

      • It is an amazing thought. We were discussing last night how there are aspects of his godhood that He may have given up permanently or at least for this age and through the thousand year reign. Things like His omnipresence. We are told throughout the Word that God the Father and God the holy Spirit are everywhere. Yet Hebrews indicates that Jesus when He ascended into Heaven sat down at the right hand of God the Father where he “lives” to make intercession for us. Further He awaits God’s call to return to Earth and in that moment He will appear. He is yet held within the bounds of time and space.
