The Word of God: Faithful, True, Powerful, Right, Enduring
Yesterday I read Proverbs 30:5, "Every word of God is pure." I hope that you and I are trusting in the truths of God's words today. The idea of God's Word being trustworthy is all over the pages of Scripture, starting right from the beginning. I believe one of the intentions that the author of Genesis had for its readers in the account of the creation was to show that God's word never fails. He speaks and it happens. Time and time again. From Genesis 1 and onward God's word never fails, it is the surest thing to bet on. We encounter "probabilities" all the time in our lives: The probability of a certain candidate to win an office, of a certain team to win the championship, the probability that it will rain or not, etc. We are faced with probabilities because we are not certain about the outcomes in life. But God's Word is a 100% guarantee every time. His promises are always true and his words can always be trusted. The Psalmist in Psalm 19:8 says "The precepts of the Lord are right, making the heart glad; the commandment of the Lord is radiant, making the eyes light up." Jesus stated that those who hear, trust, and do God's words are those whose house is built upon the rock. Paul said that God's word is beneficial to all areas of life, and Peter wrote that God's word is what transforms us and gives us new life and will endure forever. Are you trusting and obeying God's word today?
