Your word, Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. Psalm 119:89
A popular statement among Christians not so long ago was “God said it, I believe it and that settles it.” Before long some believers had modified the slogan to say: “God said it, and that settles it—whether we believe it or not.”
They were pointing out the utter reliability of God. His Word is sure—even when our faith is shaky. And because he himself is one hundred percent faithful, he is worthy of our complete trust.
The goal is not to clutch at a few Bible promises like a desperate mountain climber might grasp a series of dangling ropes. We need, rather, to come to see God’s Word as a mighty mountain under our feet—strong, stable and eternal. Our daily time spent with him will build up that mountain, giving us a strong, secure footing in the face of any difficulty.
Your Word stands firm forever, O Lord. As I have spent time in your Word over the last several days, I’ve see my relationship with you grow. You are a God of promises, and as I spend time with you, I see your promises evident in my life. I promise, you, Lord, that I will make this the year that I will spend time with you each day!
