The Word Of Our God Stands Forever

These Black-Eyed Susan flowers are bright and pretty. God created them, for a season, for us to enjoy. They are standing strong and tall, in all their glory. Sadly, they will fade away. God likened our lives to the grass and flowers that dry up, wane, then vanish. We are reminded, in God’s word, of the shortness of human life on the earth. All life is strong and glorious for a season, but we are fleeting. He created us for His good pleasure. In our time and purpose, let us not waver. Stand strong and tall in your season, giving all glory to God.

Having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself.”  Ephesians 1:9 (NKJV)

This is His word, let us take comfort in knowing that the word of our God will withstand all time on earth and into eternity. While our time on earth fades, we too, if in Christ, can share eternity. Not only will His word stand forever, He does as well. Let this comfort you as you walk along your earthly journey. He will not, at any time, leave you nor forsake you!

“For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’”                               Hebrews 13:5 (NKJV)

The Bible is His living word to us.  It is up to us to read, memorize, study, hide, believe, receive, claim and love it!  It will “Stand Forever.” LIVE IT!

  “The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.”                                                                
Isaiah 40:8 (NKJV)

Jesus’ Light Shines Bright

Thought for today . . . If you are in the tunnel of darkness, always remember there is light at the end of the tunnel. The light at the end of your dark tunnel is the living Christ. Travel through that tunnel and come to the light. Let Jesus light your path. He is the way, truth and life. Fear not for He is with you. Believe and trust.

A Time For Every Purpose Under Heaven

Seasons come and seasons go, but God stays true through all.

As we transition from Summer to Fall, we surely become aware of this, not only by the cooler temperatures, but also by the display in colors of the leaves.  Where I live, it is a season we get to enjoy.  The leaves lose their chlorophyll, allowing the true colors to come forth.  It is also a time of harvest from all the Summer growth.  In Fall, we prepare for the season of Winter, where we rest and enjoy the reap of the harvest, while waiting for the renewal and refreshing that Spring brings.  God speaks about this in His word, in Ecclesiastes 3:1 NKJV,

“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven.”

Each season has its purpose.  Every year the Summer, season of growth, closes with the change of color in the leaves, becoming Fall.  Fall is a time of change and harvest.  As the leaves fall to the ground, a yielding to the next season of Winter is taking place.  Winter is a season where we rest and enjoy the harvest.  Then, once again, Spring arrives, bringing with it a fresh newness.  It is a season of new beginning, planting and hope.  The cycle starts once again.  All the seasons have their “purpose under heaven.”

Surely, this is true in our own lives as well.  All the times and seasons have a “purpose.”  We learn; we apply and grow.  We reap; rest and trust God through it all.  Let God show you His “purpose under heaven” for you.  Then take your opportunity; share it in due season and He will bless you beyond your dreams.

If you keep God first, He will keep you first.
