A Moment with the Eternal and the Living Word

eternal and livingThe Word of the Lord stands forever.  I was praising our God this morning, on my knees in thanksgiving for the eternality of His Word.  My joy was centered on this truth: though all else fades away, His Word remains.   These two elements (our fading, and the Word remaining) was certainly the theme of my prayer and praise for a significant amount of time.

In His graciousness, I unintentionally opened to Isaiah 39 and read through Isaiah 40:8.  Realizing the Lord was at work responding to my morning worship, I stopped reading after Isaiah 40:8 to spend time in thanksgiving, for His Word is not only eternal, but also living.

He is near you, dear believer.  Reach for Him; He will be there.

“The voice said, “Cry out!” And he said, “What shall I cry?” “All flesh is grass, And all its loveliness is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades, Because the breath of the LORD blows upon it; Surely the people are grass.  The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:6-8




So, what do you think?
