Word for Today
The Word (56)-The Word of God is Eternal.
“Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away” ( Mark 13:31).
The word of God is the single most important thing in heaven and on earth. The prayer of every true believer is to make it to heaven. We currently enjoy living on earth despite all the wickedness going on. I believe we enjoy living on earth because even though all believers pray to go to heaven, very few believers are ready to die.
As important as heaven is in the scheme of God’s creation, our memory verse says heaven will pass away, even as this earth will pass away. The only thing that will never pass away is the word of God. This is an indication of how much God values His word. If you truly love God, then you will value and honour His word above every other thing.
Is the word of God your delight? Are you delighted when you see the Word of God. Does the word of God excite you and give you joy? Like the Psalmist confessed, without the Word, you are very vulnerable. Hold unto the word of God if you desire to be set free from all afflictions.
“Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction”(Psalm 119:92)
Father, please, give me the grace to value your word above all other things in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
