God’s Word Stands Forever… and Ever!
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” —Matthew 24:35
Where were you on Y2K? The day the Mayan calendar ended…or on any of the many dates forecasted by experts, preachers, scholars, or prophets as “the end of the world”?
Take heart—and believe Jesus.
In this easy-to-memorize promise, Jesus assures you that no matter what happens to the earth—up to and including the day it passes away completely—His Word will remain.
No matter what the world experiences, His presence and power will abide. His every promise will be fulfilled. Every word He has ever shared lives on.
Jesus promised, “For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished” (Matthew 5:18), and “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End” (Revelation 22:13).
The Psalmist declared: “The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb” (Psalm 19:7-10).
Let this truth counsel and comfort you in all situations: “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever” (Isaiah 40:8).
Beyond catastrophic predictions by doomsdayers and naysayers, God’s Word stands strong in the face of any and all of life’s anxious or trying moments.
In a world of shifting sand, God’s Word is the perfect, rock-solid foundation upon which to build your life.
My prayer for this week:
Heavenly Father, I am grateful that Jesus is your living Word, and that His words never fail and will never pass away. Thank you for this reminder that no matter what happens in this life—in this world—I stand upon the solid Rock. Help me hold fast, today, this week, and always, I pray.
