The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.
After Hezekiah’s revealing of all that is in his storehouses and everything else, God tells him to strengthen the people and get them ready for a difficult future. He wants his people to know that everything seen here on earth, even though it looks trustworthy, or even beautiful, it will fade and go away but God’s word will last forever.
People will fail us. Things will not fill the void. Knowing and trusting in God and his promises for our lives is what we need to hold on to as it proves to be the only thing that will remain true for ever.
As I continue reading through God’s word, I pray that he will give me confidence and trust in all his words. I pray that I can stand firm in them and know that an understanding of him will give me strength and wisdom!
