Memory Monday – Week 94
Colby and I aren’t the best gardeners. We don’t have the knowledge and it’s not on the top of our priority list, so we haven’t invested the time or money to make the lawn and landscape looks nice. We feel like we can relate to Isaiah 40:8 which says, “The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.”
In the preceding verses, Isaiah 40:6-7, people are compared to grass and flowers. As Colby and I have learned very quickly in a physical sense, grass and flowers will wither and fade away. But, The word of God stands forever. Not the word of men, doctors, books, google, friends, co-workers. All of those are just like grass and flowers and will wither and fade as well. While they might last for a time period, they will not be sustained.
The word of the Lord is a solid rock. Isn’t it amazing to think of all it has endured over thousands of years? It has withstood being passed on from generation to generation, church to church and it’s still the same. It’s faced doubts, criticism, neglect, persecution, but it has never changed. God’s word is the same yesterday, today, and forever. What God says He will do will come to pass. Put your hope in Him and His word, the one thing that remains the same.
