“They hold fast to themselves an evil purpose; they talk of laying snares secretly; they say, “Who can see them?” They devise injustices, saying, “We are ready with a well-conceived plot”; for the inward thought and the heart of a man are deep. But God will shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly they will be wounded.” (Psalm 64:5-7)
The plans of the wicked are all the same. They think what they do is secret, but the Lord who sees all things knows what the wicked do in secret. It comes to naught. Look to the Lord and know that He who sees all things knows what is needed and provides before you make the request. Yes, it seems for a time the wicked prosper, but what they do amounts to nothing.
Lord, help me to have a larger view of things that I may see through time how the plots of those who devise things in secret are thwarted. Guide me to know truly that You who sees all things cannot be shaken. Help me trust in Your provision at all time knowing that You are working all things together for good for those who love You. Lead me, O Lord, that I may be led by You alone.
Lord Jesus, You went to the cross through the efforts of those who plotted in secret places, yet it fit perfectly the Father’s will. From this simple place, let me see that no matter what happens, Your hand of grace is upon me and all who turn to You. Guide me according to Your perfect will to see in You the hope of glory that You have won at the cross through those who desired otherwise. Amen.
