Your eternal word, O Lord, stands firm in heaven. Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth you created. Your regulations remain true to this day, for everything serves your plans. – Psalm 119:89-91 (NLT)
God’s word is eternal and never changing. It stands unshaken in heaven. His faithfulness is not just for people in the past, it’s for us – here and now. Just like the earth that He formed, His promises endure. Everything that is in His word, all of His instructions, are relevant and true for us today. Everything that happens and everything that is called into existence is under the rule of His purpose. He has intentionally orchestrated everything that has happened, is happening and will happen. For me, this is a message of trust and comfort. I have confidence in my God that He will not lead me into harm. I have confidence in my God that He will be faithful to me, in every circumstance – He will not let me fall. I have confidence in my God that He will guide me, either through His word or through whispers from His spirit that stir in my soul. I have confidence that my God will lead me into the right relationships and to places that I need to be. If you proclaim my God as yours also, do you have confidence in Him?
