Psalm 119.89

The consistent One

"Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven" [Psalm 119.89 NASB]

In the midst of our various shopping sprees, most of us will have purchased an item which we thought at first was good value for our hard earned money, but in a very short space of time, after more closely examining our unsatisfactory purchase, we realized soberly and sadly that we had been taken in.

At the conclusion of the book of the Revelation, God used the word "Amen" to indicate the transition from the temporal to the eternal. In essence this word means that we can fully depend on the covenant keeping God to fulfil His word, whether it is one of promise or the irreversible sentence of judgement.

This sense of stability in terms of a permanent and a meaningful relationship is practically unknown in the environment in which we live and work. However, it is only after seasons of instability and uncertainty that we can genuinely appreciate the unfailing faithfulness of God's word.

In the first chapter of his letter to the Ephesians, Paul taught that God providentially orders all our circumstances in accordance with His will and on more than one occasion will permit certain events to occur - which will in themselves be the catalyst which will sometimes literally throw us upon God. This had happened to David on more than one occasion. Have you also experienced this kind of situation? What did you do?

Ezekiel, who had been trained for the priesthood from a very impressionable and tender age, found himself in idolatrous and extremely wicked Babylon where there was no need for his many years of priestly and theological preparation. What did he do? He sat in silence until he heard the word of the Lord.

Do you feel that you have lost everything? Have your years or perhaps decades of training been of no apparent value except for financial loss or an increased accumulation of debt, and now you find that all of your training and multiple experiences are completely unacceptable and unnecessary where you are?

Can you identify with Ezekiel? Yes? Then do what he did. Wait until the "Amen" speaks whose word you can depend upon. He just might do for you as He did for Ezekiel and give you a heavenly and a very practical and personal ministry - which as in Ezekiel's time, will be just what the people need.

God has no favourites. What He has started in your life He will satisfactorily complete in accordance with His perfect will. [David McArdle]






If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
