“For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.” Psalms 119:89

The old saying goes, “Nothing lasts forever,” and unfortunately, with almost everything we might mention, that is true. No matter what the promise is or how strong the guarantee, in this life, things eventually deteriorate and break down. And it happens whether we are talking about the newest car, the latest model computer, or even some relationships. There is simply no guarantee that anything in this life will last as long as we would like them to. However, that is not true with God’s word. God’s word has come with an air-tight guarantee. God has promised that, when everything else has gone away, when all the things that were supposed to last forever are gone, His word will still be there. It is the one thing we have in this life that we can depend upon to be there whenever we need it. God has preserved His word for us, and it is settled in heaven. There is no force anywhere in the Universe or beyond that can remove God’s word. Life offers no guarantees, but God’s word does. So, take joy in the fact that God has given us His word, and actively and consistently involve yourself in it.
