The word establish in the dictionary means: set up (an organization, system, or set of rules) on a firm or permanent basis. The word established means: having been in existence for a long time and therefore recognized and generally accepted.
God's word has been set up/established from the beginning. It is permanent and to be recognized and accepted as the truth. Its instructions, its councils, its commands have always been accepted as the absolute truth-- because it is. Nations were formed on its principals. Businesses were governed by its precepts. Lives have been forever changed by the peace it gives. Hope has been restored because of its promises. Dreams have been accomplished because of its guidance. Nations have fallen because they refused to be governed by it. Lives have resulted in ruin because they ignored it.
God's word has been established forever-- from the beginning until the end. Yet, sadly, now days it is being put in question. It is being rejected. It is being mocked. It is being ignored. Even in the church it is being watered down, compromised, reinterpreted, and rejected as the first and final authority. It is being replaced by philosophy; by educated wisdom; by humanistic thinking. Do we really think we know better? Do we really think we can build our lives, our homes, our businesses, our nations, upon our own wisdom and council?
Only a house that is built upon a firm foundation can stand the test of time and the elements. Only a life that is built upon a firm foundation can stand and withstand life in general. "Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock." (Matthew 7:24,25)
While the world is degrading the word of God, while the church is compromising it, and while multitudes are ignoring it, you and I must individually live by it, let it govern our actions and attitudes, and have its truths firmly established in our hearts.
Have a great day. God's word is forever established. Is it established in your heart?
