"The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever." 
Isaiah 40:8  
   
  
Today's Thoughts 
  
The Wycliffe Bible Commentary says, "Taken by himself, man is tragically frail and transient, and his beauty soon fades. His life is devoid of real dignity or meaning. But the eternal and infallible Word of God invests believing mankind with imperishable significance and glory."
 
Think about it for a moment . . . there is nothing that compares to the power of the Word of God. Man is frail, his life is merely a whisper in eternity . . . the strongest, healthiest, and most prosperous are no different than the rest of us for they will also be overtaken by the frailty of mankind. Not a word spoken, not a promise made, not a contract written can compare to the authority and integrity of the Word of God! The only significance mankind may ever have is given to him through the Word . . . the infallible, living, power-packed Word of God!
 
Throughout history we have seen kingdoms lose their power and vanish    . . . we have seen cities fall . . . strong nations have lost their power and become nearly insignificant. But throughout all this, God doesn't change. He is in the midst of all the wars and struggles, and is yet unchanged. Not one of His promises will ever fail. His Word WILL prevail regardless of what things look like to us!
 
The Word of God . . . does it have pre-eminence in your life? Is it what you cling to when you're in trouble? Is it where you run to when you are in need? Is it your meditation day and night? Is it the standard for your life?
 
We can all find areas where we're neglecting the Word of God by not allowing it to have its way in our life, molding us and making us into vessels of honor for Him! Give the Word priority in your life in your home    . . . you'll be glad you did! 
  
 
Today's Prayer  
  
Father, it seems as though I'm always coming to you for forgiveness . . . here I am again! Lord, forgive me for not giving Your Word top priority in my life. When I have a question, I look for the phone . . . when looking for advice, I find a book on the subject . . . all the while I should go directly to Your Word and expect an answer through fellowshipping with You in it! Lord, in comparison to You . . . to Your Word . . . to all that You are, I am but a mere whisper. And, without You, I am totally nothing! You are my strength, O God . . . You are my help, O God . . . You are the One in whom I trust! You are my Shield, O God . . . my life I yield, O God . . . You will always be my All in All! Amen! 


Have a blessed day!
