The word of the Lord stands forever. God’s word is perfect, pure, true and everlasting. His promises are sure, reliable, steadfast and durable. Everything that He speaks comes to pass. Everything that He says has life, eternally. His word is alive. His word is guidance, comfort, assurance, and truth in a world of uncertainty, pain, confusion and deception. For all my disobedience, His word assures me of the grace I have found. For all my fears, His word assures me of the safety and protection that surrounds me. For all my loneliness, His word assures me of the everlasting presence of the Holy Spirit – the only company actually worth having. God is my shepherd, and His word stands forever.
