While the world is in a constant state of change, it is comforting to know that one can trust in the stability of an unchanging God. One may have heard the expression “God said it, I believe it, and that settles it.” If God said it, it’s going to happen.
When the Gospel of John opens, it opens with the statement: “In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
In a few verses later, the Gospel states that “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us... The world was introduced to the Word, Jesus Christ.” The point is that Jesus is eternal and He is the Word. As such, He has been, is and will be here forever.
The world wants to change God, but in reality, God changes those who will believe and trust in the saving grace of the Lord. If one will spend some time reading the 24th chapter of Matthew, one will find a description of woes, but one can also find hope in the Word.
God truly inspired John to write in his various books describing Jesus as the Word. The Gospel of John, the First Epistle of John (5:7), and the Book of Revelation (19:13). All can rest in their confidence of an eternal God.
While the world trembles with a state of uncertainty, God’s children can look at the last chapter of the Word and see who will be the victor. Apostle Peter described the eternalness of the Word quite well: “For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower thereof falleth away. But the word of the Lord endureth forever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.” (1 Peter 1:24-25).
Trust God today and He will never fail.
