The grass withers, the flower fades; nothing lasts except the word of our God. It will stand forever. Isaiah 40:8 (VOICE)
Do you remember when cars were made of metal and would last for years & years? It seems like we don’t make things to last anymore. It’s cheaper to buy a new printer than to buy a replacement ink cartridge for the one you own now. Looking at these things we might conclude that the world has really gotten worse. But that’s just an illusion. Isaiah says there is only one thing that truly stands the test of time; one thing that lasts forever. That is the word of our God. It will stand forever. If you want something steadfast and permanent in your life, open up the Bible and absorb the words He’s spoken to us. Bury them deep in your heart and you will have a lasting treasure that does not spoil or fade. All the pretty things around us are only here for a season. They will wither and fade. But His word is eternal. Grab hold of some “forever” today.
