God's Word Never Changes, It Is Always True

"Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven."
Psalm 119:89 (NKJV)

There are many things in life that are subject to change.  The weather changes from day to day, technology progresses and changes, political leaders change, economic conditions change, styles change, and opinions change.  There are a lot of reasons that things change and often what was once widely accepted changes and is now no longer relevant.  A good example of this is when was the last time you listened to your favorite music on a record or a cassette tape?  Many things in life change but one thing that never changes is God's Word; His Word is forever settled!

Many people are confident that God's Word is it true and wonderful as long as everything is fine and they feel good.  But then, something happens, something changes in their life and a problem comes that they did not expect and their confidence is shaken.  Too many Christians believe God's Word is true up to a point but then they are not so sure; we are sometimes so used to things being subject to change that we take this same view about the Word of God.  No matter what the situation, no matter how we feel, no matter what others might say, God's Word is always true regardless of our circumstances.

We need to settle it within ourselves that no matter what comes our way and no matter how we feel God's Word is settled and it will not change.  One reason we are sometimes not as convinced as we need to be about the truth and validity of God's Word is because we do not spend enough time with it and we do not know God's Word like we should.  Make it a regular practice to spend time reading and studying God's Word and in every situation instead of first checking your feelings, circumstances, or even what other people say, find out what the Bible has to say.  God's Word never changes, it is always true!
