Forever, O LORD, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens. Psalm 119:89
Do you ever happen to see those bumper stickers that read, “God said it; I believe it; and that settles it!”
Well, I’d like to take issue with that little slogan and change it to, “God said it and that settles it!”
You see, the truth of God’s Word, or any subject for that matter, isn’t dependent on our belief of it. Truth is truth no matter what we think or how we feel about it. It just is. That means the Bible verses we put on coffee cups are just as true and inspired as the sometimes endless genealogies of the Old Testament!
“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16–17
“And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” 2 Peter 1:19–21
So what does this mean for us? It means that all the Bible—every chapter, every verse, and every word —is inspired and deserving of our attention. Yes, there may be certain verses that are more inspiring, but it’s all equally inspired!
God’s entire Word is firmly fixed in heaven and is as relevant to your life today as it was to those who wrote it so long ago. Don’t neglect the Word of God. Dig in daily and relish its wonderful teachings. It’s God’s gift to you… so open it!
GOD’S ENTIRE WORD IS AS RELEVANT TODAY AS IT WAS THE DAY IT WAS WRITTEN. OPEN IT DAILY AND LET GOD GUIDE YOUR LIFE!
