Staying On Course Through God's Word

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

People are looking for something to focus on and follow in life.  But there are so many things in life that you can't always rely on because of the amount of change involved.  For example, I used to listen to cassette tapes, I used to own a pet rock, and I used to wear bell bottom jeans.  At one time all of these things were very popular but they are rare if found at all today.  With all of the things that change in life it is good to know that God's Word does not change and God's Word is always something we can focus on and follow with success.

Many people have problems because what they are using as a foundation for their life is not stable and secure, like God's Word.  People try to do something to fit in only to find that as soon as they think they fit in the style has changed.  Others try to stay current with the latest popular culture or trend in the world and then they find out something "new" has come along and now they are out of it again.  If we try to base our life on all of the things in the world that are subject to change we will certainly live a frustrating life. 

God's Word is settled, forever.  There are no new updates for God's Word, it has not changed or been revised and it never will be.  God's Word is always relevant and useful for our daily lives.  God's Word is the only stable thing that we can base the course of our life on.  True success and happiness in life is only going to come by knowing, understanding, and following God's Word.  If it seems like your life has just been a series of ups and downs then get off of the roller coaster of passing fads and get connected with the Word of God, that is the only way to truly stay on the right course in life.
