“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”
It’s interesting to think about how technology has changed daily routines in my lifetime. I remember the first time I saw a push button phone. It was right after the last dinosaur died, but it was a big deal because every phone I had seen had a rotary dial. It took forever to call someone, and if you dialed the wrong number you had to start over again—and that was after you looked up the number in the telephone book! You may be too young to remember those ancient artifacts! I remember the first time I saw a fax machine. We’d send something and call to ask, “Did you get it?” “Yeah, I got it. That’s unbelievable!” Those events were “Can you believe that?” moments, but all kinds of items that are a part of our lives now will soon make their way into the antique mall because they will be obsolete. Scripture says that all of the “things” of this world - even the heavens and the earth - will pass away, but God’s Word, His message to us, never will. In a world with as much change and uncertainly as ours, I’m very grateful for that.
Heavenly Father, I am so thankful for Your unchanging nature and Your unchanging Word. In days when the earth seems to be shaking from its very core, You are constant, faithful, and true. Your Word is a light for my path during times when the world around me seems dark and full of pitfalls. I choose to hold fast to You today, Lord. In Jesus’ name, amen.
