How long do God’s promises stand?
How do God’s promises stand?
How can we tap into them in our lives?
Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. Your faithfulness continues through all generations; you established the earth, and it endures. Your laws endure to this day, for all things serve you. ~ Psalm 119:89-91
Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven. Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands. They stand this day according to Your ordinances, For all things are Your servants. ~ Psalm 119:89-91
If Your law had not been my delight, then I would have perished in my affliction. I will never forget Your precepts, for by them You have revived me. ~ Psalm 119:92-93
Revive means “to live, have life, remain alive, sustain life, live prosperously, live forever, be quickened, be alive, be restored to life or health.”
God’s promises stand firm FOREVER! They stand because He ESTABLISHED them to do so. We tap into them when we DELIGHT ourselves in God’s Words.
So of the things that mean “revive,” which one do you need?
I need them all. I desire them all. And since they are available to me, then I will stand on them all—and I will keep standing until they have been fulfilled in my life.
Father, thank you for your promises and that they stand firm forever. Thank you for reminding me that I can choose to stand on them and not sink into the muck. Do I believe that this is a battle? Yes. Do I believe that I will continue to have to battle? Yes. Do I believe I have to lose? No, because Your Words—which are buried in my heart—tell me that I am more than a conqueror and I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I pray that whatever parts of “revive” we need, that You would lead us to Your Promises and that we would be able to stand on them. I pray that we would stand with and for and by each other. Lord be with us today. Give us comfort, protection, rest, and Your peace. Continue to supply all of our needs. It’s in Jesus’ Name that I pray, Amen.
