“Your Word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the Heavens.” -Psalm 119:89
Each verse in Psalm 119 is a beautiful stand alone prayer framed as a plea, or a confession, of adoration, or thanksgiving. Here the psalmist praises in adoration the true and trustworthy Word of God. He proclaims God’s words are eternal. The Scriptures are truly our most treasured possession as Christians. God did not anoint us as pilgrims and then leave us alone to figure everything out. He has given us His own instructions, which if we follow them, will lead to goodness and mercy all the days of our lives and into eternal glory.
God’s Word is eternal. It will never be irrelevant or forgotten in human history as thousands of other books have. Even when we fade and wither, returning back to the earth, God’s Word stands forever (Isaiah 40:6-8). The Bible is the one book which leads to everlasting life, because of whom it points to. Jesus Christ is The Way, The Truth, The Life (John 14:6). All of Scripture points to Him as the Redeemer of mankind. What blessing, what mercy, for us to have the Bible at our fingertips.
Grace upon grace,
