We live in unstable times in an ever changing world. The only thing I know of that never changes is the Word of God! It’s forever settled, fixed and established! Basing my life on the Word produces stability and confidence.
Jesus said that when you practice the Word you will be safe when challenges come your way. Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash (Matthew 7:24-27 – NLT).
I want to share with you today the scriptures that I meditate on regularly to keep faith in the Word built up strongly within me. I’ve been meditating on these scriptures for many years now, and they have given me strength and confidence in my Father. Take time to meditate on them regularly:
God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good (Numbers 23:19).
For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11).
My covenant I will not break, Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips (Psalm 89:34). Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven (Psalm 119:89).
I will worship toward Your holy temple, And praise Your name For Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above all Your name (Psalm 138:2).
The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever (Isaiah 40:8).
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it (Isaiah 55:11).
The Lord said to me, You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled (Jeremiah 1:12 – NIV).
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away (Matthew 24:35).
These scriptures have kept me during some really difficult times. I often meditate them while driving, or when I wake up in the night. Many times I mention them to the Lord when praying. They have become my constant companion. Make them yours!
