"For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven." Psalm 119:89
Many things change in life. We change the way we think, our opinions, our viewpoint and our convictions. Fads and fashions change from generation to generation. Even within the walls of the church doctrine seems to be changing. When I was growing up, there was a certain mindset-- you loved God, your family and your country. It seems as though we have developed a completely opposite mindset.
While we change our minds and the way we think or view things, there is something that stays the same-- God' word. It does not change. God's word is eternal and it is forever settled. Its meaning does not change. Its precepts and principals do not change. If it says you reap what you sow, then you reap what you sow-- whether you lived a thousand years ago or are alive now.
God's word is relevant for today, it is not outdated. Just because society changed its way of thinking does not mean that the Bible did. If it said do not kill, steal or commit adultery, it still means for us to abide by that today-- regardless of how smart we think we are that we don't need these "old-fashioned" rules.
The commandments and rules that are guidelines for our lives have not changed, nor ever will. But the comfort, hope and guidance that we find within its pages never changes either. King David found hope in God's word thousands of years ago. The early church found hope in His word thousands of years ago. I found hope and comfort in God's word a decade ago, and I am still finding it in there today.
I am so thankful that His word never changes. That fact gives me assurance that every time I go to it seeking help, I will always find it-- and you will too. Look in its pages, it has the answer to all your problems. And those answers fit today's needs just like they did yesterday.
Have a great day. The Word of God is not outdated and it has not changed. It still offers the help you need within its pages just like it did yesterday and thousands of years ago.
