Psalm 119.91

Stand firm

"They stand this day according to Your ordinances, for all things are Your servants" [Psalm 119.91 NASB]

As a shepherd boy David was very often awestruck when he looked at and deliberated on the wonders of God's creation, and these indelible impressions affected him deeply both in his life and his writings.

It is interesting to note that when writing to people he had yet to meet, Paul started his letter to the Roman Christians by referring to God's handiwork in creation [Romans 1:20-25]. Whether we appreciated it or not this was also God's first calling card into our lives.

Unlike some people described in Romans 1 who chose to think and act differently, David found it easy to make the transition from the physical to the spiritual. That is, he reasoned that God who holds all things together could also be depended on to keep His word.

At a time of trial and testing we need to bear in mind that "all things" are His servants. At a similar time in his life God's evangelical watchman cried out, " I have created the armies that destroy. But in that coming day, no weapon turned against you will succeed." [Isaiah 54.16-17 NLT].

One of our enemy's strongest tools in his armoury is to attempt to get us to doubt the authenticity of God's word. In this way he was successful with the first Adam and at the second attempt the Lord from heaven comprehensively defeated him [Luke 4:1-14].

Jesus' approach to that conflict was Spirit inspired and His exit avenue was encased in the Word. This is a good and effective example for us to follow. [David McArdle]
