Get In the Word

on March 15, 2012

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.” Isaiah 40:8

Everything we know in this life is temporal.  The grass withers, flowers fade: nothing last forever.  We’re so accustomed to the fact that everything dies or fades that it’s hard to grasp the concept that the word of God will stand forever.  We’re also used to the unfaithfulness of our fellow humans’ word.  Most people don’t keep their promises.  God’s Word, whether spoken or written, shall surely stand forever.

When we feel God is leading us in a direction or telling us something, we can be sure that His word is true.  The Bible, God’s written Word, is sure to last forever.  It’s so important to apply His word to our hearts and minds each day.  When we read God’s word we can know it’s true and we can trust God to speak to us through it.

Today I challenge you to get in the Word.  God speaks to us through it when we are prepared to listen to Him.  His word will stand for ever.  If we’re rooted and ground in His word, we’ll be prepared to stand before God.

“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”  2 Timothy 2:15
