Almost everything we own will deteriorate over time. What we possess will completely fall apart and turn to dust and rust. My house will not stand forever. My car will end up in a landfill someday, and as it corrodes it will return to the earth. Hundreds of years from now, nothing I own will still be usable. It might start out shiny and new, but eventually stuff gets old.
Yet, there is one thing that will stand the test of time. As we’ve been looking at Psalm 119, we’ve seen how often God’s Word has been referenced. It’s referred to in a multitude of ways, His laws, His precepts, His decrees. Today’s verse gives us a little perspective on how long lasting it is. “Your word, Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.” Psalm 119:89
God’s Word is eternal. People can argue against it. They can vilify it. They can burn it or demand that it not be in schools or that it be removed from our historical documents. They can mock it, shun it, rally against it. But God’s Word will stand. There is nothing that can erase it. Every word is true. Every promise is for us. We can stand on it.
Dear Jesus, Your Word is true and I can plant my life firmly in its promises. It is never changing and it is everlasting. Thank You.
