Psalm 119:89 – “Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven.” NKJV
This world is full of fads, gimmicks, and imitations! Everywhere we turn someone has either invented, discovered, developed, or suggesting a sure-fire, quick, easy, simple remedy and answer for whatever you face, need, or desire. How many new miraculous, revolutionary Weight Loss products, pills, or plans have you heard about over the past few years? They are so many and varied it is laughable. We have everything from diets consisting of vitamins, grapefruit, banana, split-pea soup, garlic and onion, low calorie, low carb, etc. Many promote their product as being “eat whatever you want, whenever you want, and whatever much you want with no exercise and LOSE WEIGHT.” Seriously? If I keep doing what made me overweight how am I suddenly going to lose weight, get rid of belly fat, and develop six-pack abs by sitting on the couch, taking a pill, and feeding my face? NOT GOING TO HAPPEN, at least not safely.
We have the same mentality in investments and finances. There are plans that will make you Instantly Rich and you have to spend virtually no money or time to achieve it. If you invest no time, money, or energy I question how you are going to achieve financial success. I saw one of those ads that had as its conclusion: Send $25 and find out how. How what? How to make the advertiser rich and to achieve their success you need to buy your own ad in enough publications to draw in the gullible and make money on their gullibility. That is not success is it SCAM.
Coke claims to be THE REAL THING, but Dr. Pepper implies that if you drink their product your life will be fuller and more exciting, and Pepsi claims to be the cure-all for an entire generation. I want to offer a Fact, Truth, and Source that WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE! It is not a Fad, a Scam, or Easy Fix but it will TOTALLY TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE.
- It will Transform you from Rags to Riches.
- It will Transform you from Bondage to Freedom.
- It will Transform you from Gloom and Despair to Joy Unspeakable.
- It will Cause your Mind to Function Better.
- It will Cause your Thoughts to be clearer.
- It will Cause your Outlook to be sweeter.
- It will Produce Peace that is beyond anything the world can comprehend.
This Truth, when applied will usher you into a realm where you will have Victory over the devil, and you will look forward to spiritual encounters because of the Freedom and Power it affords. Let me introduce you to THE REAL THING. “Forever, O Lord, Your Word is settled in heaven.” Once God declares His will and gives His word, that revelation becomes an established fact. Matthew 24:35, “Heaven and earth will pass away but my words shall not pass away.” Isaiah 40:8, “The grass withers and the flower fades, but the Word of our God shall stand forever.”
Let me give you several things to consider.
- GOD’S WORD IS A SETTLE FACT.
It is unchanging from generation to generation. People change, ideologies change, traditions change BUT GOD DOES NOT CHANGE! James 1:17 tells us that in God there is no change and His word is unchanging.
- THE BASIS AND REALITY OF GOD’S WORD IS GOD’S INTEGRITY.
(v.90) – “Your faithfulness endures to all generations…” It goes on to declare that God created the earth and it stands according to God’s desire. It is subject to God and He makes Promises that never fail.
- GOD’S WORD IS UNFALTERING AND UNFAILING.
The devil has tried without success to destroy it for a very long time but this word will not die and will not fail. It is Infallible, Indispensable, and Indestructible. God’s Word can no more fail than God can cease to exist or cease to love.
I would like to address this more so I will pause here and ask that you consider WHO this word belongs to and the SOURCE from which it comes and let that give you comfort and confidence to STAND regardless of what you encounter. GOD DOES NOT FAIL and HIS WORD WORKS.
God, bless you richly is my prayer and desire!
