“The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.”
(Isaiah 40:8, NKJV)
Some time ago, I overheard a conversation between two men talking about the
Kentucky Derby. They were discussing the horses that would be running, the odds
and the favorites. One of the men, trying to convince the other to place a bet on a
particular horse, made the familiar statement, “It’s a sure thing.”
We have all heard that statement before, but when I heard it this time I wanted to
jump into their conversation and tell them both, “The only sure thing that there is,
is God and the Word of God.”
1. Do you truly know you can depend on God’s Word?
2. Are you convinced that what God promises, He will perform?
3. Can you declaratively testify that God cannot make a promise that He does
4. Everything else might wither, fail, fade and pass away, but God’s Word
stands forever. Because His Words will stand forever, doesn’t it make since to
stand on His Word?
There is not much in this life that is “sure” but the one thing you can count on is
that God’s Word is “A SURE THING!”
