December 26, 2019: SOAP #3675:  Psalm 117; 119:81-176; 2John; 3John

Scripture:  Psalm (NIV) 119:89 Your word, O LORD, iseternal; it stands firm in the heavens. 90 Your faithfulness continues throughall generations; you established the earth, and it endures. 91 Your laws endureto this day, for all things serve you.

Observation:  Twoqualities are found in God's Word.  It iseternal.  That which was written in Moses'day 'endures to this day' "King David's day, and today, and for as manytomorrows as there will be. 

It is universal.  It 'stands firm in theheavens.'  It is trustworthy in all areasof God's creation. Those now circling the earth in a space station can rely onGod's Word as surely as those whose feet have never left the earth. 

God's Word is as eternal and universal as God. The Word of Him whose existence is from eternity past to eternity futurecan be no different!  The Word of Him whofills the universe with His presence can be no different~

Application:   As Iapproach the end of one year and the beginning of a new year, I must hold on toGod's Word.  Predictions of earthquakes,the unpredictability of various national leaders, the determination of membersof the US House of Representatives to impeach our President with no evidence ofhim having done something worthy of such action"all this and more tells me thatI need something eternal and universal for my foundation. 

Prayer:   Jesus,the better I am acquainted with the eternal and universal written word of God,and the better I know You, the eternal and universal living Word of God, thebetter I am prepared to face the uncertainty of a new year.  Holy Spirit, continue to make the Word activein my thoughts.   Amen
