Today’s Encouragement is Isaiah 59:21 NLT “And this is my covenant with them,” says the LORD. “My Spirit will not leave them, and neither will these words I have given you. They will be on your lips and on the lips of your children and your children’s children forever. I, the LORD, have spoken!
I, the Lord, have spoken –
God has spoken. Centuries ago. The same vessel who earlier spoke with complete accuracy of the Messiah (chapter 53) now proclaims that forever- His Spirit will not leave us, nor His words, what’s more… His words will be on our lips and the lips of our children and their children and each successive generation… forever.
These are God’s proclamation, His Words – not mine. We choose to believe it, or to casually set it aside with, “Ah, the Old Testament, how nice to have this history book.”
Did God somehow change? Is He any different at the time of Jesus’ birth, in Isaiah’s day, in our day? Are the words He inspired His prophets to speak and to write, no longer filled with the power as when He first spoke them? Malachi 3:6a NLT “I am the LORD, and I do not change.”
My friends- God’s Word is truth. His Word, His promise is inviolate, pure, unchanging, living, and alive. (Heb 4:12)
And He spoke these words as a Covenant with us my friends! He doesn’t change, His Word and His covenant promises are eternal!
Lord, thank You for Your glorious promises, Your Covenants, Your Word which endures Forever.
All flesh is like the grass
