Who Gets the Last Word?

By Andrea Merrell

Forever, O Lord,

Your word is settled in heaven

[standing firm and unchangeable].
Psalm 119:89 AMP

It’s funny to watch a one-upper in action. You know, the ones who know it all, have seen it all, and have done it all. The ones who have to have the last word in every conversation.

We all have an opinion. We all want to be right. And we all want to be heard. Some just fight a little harder for it.

But ultimately, what does our opinion matter? Who cares if we’re right or wrong? In the grand scheme of things, it’s God who is sovereign over all. His is the only opinion that counts, and He is the one who gets the last word.

The Bible tells us that one day every single knee will bow to the name of Jesus, both those who adore Him and those who oppose Him. On that day, wealth won’t matter. Education won’t matter. Neither will power, fame, position, or politics.

Who gets the last word? God does. Period.

  1. Thank you! Love the amen ... nuff said, right? Some people say, "God said it, I believe it, and that settles it." In reality, if God said it, that settles it. Period. Blessings! :)
