The Word of the Lord Will Stand


For all flesh (mankind) is like grass, and all its glory (honor) like [the] flower of grass.  The grass withers and the flower drops off.  But the Word of the Lord endures forever.  And this Word is the good news which was preached to you.     1 Peter 1:24-25 amp

We, as mere men, only have a short time to bloom here on earth.  The Word of God  never changes.  It will stand forever (Isaiah 40:8).  So, with this knowledge…how do we live our lives? 

Everything that God said, He did.  He sent His Son to save a world in need, to pay the price for our sin.  He lets us choose to follow Him.  And often enough, we don’t take this into account.  We follow Him when it’s convenient and comfortable, not necessarily when it squeezes us or brings change to our hearts and lives.

We need to consistently remind ourselves that studying and praying the Word of God are the best ways to proclaim His promises that can’t be undone or ever change.

Look to His Word for answers to your everyday situations and with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to Him (Philippians 4:6).
