God’s Word Endures Forever
89 Your word, Lord, is eternal;
it stands firm in the heavens.
90 Your faithfulness continues through all generations;
you established the earth, and it endures.
91 Your laws endure to this day,
for all things serve you.
God’s word endures forever. His word guides us in our ways. We can rely on God’s word not changing, for God is truth, and there is no deception in Him. The steadfast nature of God’s Word helps us to remember that He is faithful as well. We can depend upon His word to guide us in the way we should go.
The counsel of men is fallible, and can change over time. God’s word has the perspective of eternity, providing us with a more full understanding of the character and nature of God, as well as understand His righteousness and man’s evil. The permanence of truth is should be a great comfort to all who seek it and learn from it.
God is always faithful. His faithfulness spans generations, and is eternal. And even though Heaven and Earth will pass away, God’s faithfulness will not. God will always keep His word. When we are tempted to believe that God is not being faithful, we only need to look at the endurance of our planet to remember that God does not change.
Since God’s word will not pass away, we can always be assured that He will be fulfilling His promises. God has made us many wonderful promises that He has fulfilled and continues to fulfill today. His laws guide us in truth and righteousness. It is only through the law that we recognize our true condition and can turn from sin towards God. Permanence seems to be forsaken in the world today for the less permanent wants and desires of man. Nothing in God’s word will pass away until everything is accomplished. We ignore God’s Holy word at our own peril.
A Qualifying Question
Let’s ask a question: Do I delight in the character of God when I am going through trials?
A short prayer of preparation:
Father in Heaven, You do not change like shifting shadows, but are the same yesterday, today, and for eternity. Help me to remember Your steadfast love as I encounter the many trials I face today. Strengthen me in the knowledge of Your character and desire to fulfill in Your time all that You have promised. Keep my heart continually pointed towards Yours as the difficulties of life pull at me, and help me to cry out to You for my every need. Surround me with Your peace, and guard me in my ways. This I ask in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
