In Psalm 119:89-96, David wrote the


89. Forever, O Lord, Your word is firmly

settled in the heavens.
90. Your faithfulness endures to all
generations; You have established the Earth,
and it stands fast.
91. By Your appointment they stand this
day; for all things are Your servants.
92. If Your law had not been my delight, I
should have perished in my affliction.
93. I will never forget Your precepts; for by
them You have given me life.
94. I am Yours, save me; for I have sought
Your precepts.
95. The wicked lie in wait to destroy me; but
I consider Your testimonies.
96. I have seen a limit to all perfection, but
Your commandment is exceedingly broad.
Have you ever noticed that very little gets
settled in this world? Few things are
resolved politically. We sign treaties and
contracts, and then they're broken or
reinterpreted. Nothing seems final. Your
life may be unsettled because of a situation
or person. If that's the case, consider verse
89: "Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled
in Heaven."
My word--or anyone's, for that matter--
is not settled. I've changed my opinions
and my beliefs on certain things. I hope
that when I give my word it is
trustworthy. But God's Word is always
true. We can trust it. We don't have to
worry about Him lying to us. He can't.
God's Word is eternal. People often go
to used bookstores and find bestsellers
from years ago being sold for 25 cents
each. Not so with God's Word. Jesus
said, "Heaven and Earth will pass away,
but My words will by no means pass
away." (Matthew 24:35)
God's Word also is changeless. God is not
a diplomat who argues endlessly. “Jesus
Christ is the same yesterday and today
and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8) He simply
says, "This is the way it is going to be.”
If you want to find out how He has settled
things, read His Word. He has provided
all we need to know for eternal life.
I'm glad that when I open my Bible, I find
that things are settled. God tells us how to
stop wars, how to solve problems, how to
take care of sin. Best of all, He tells us
how we can go to heaven. That's all
settled. The Lord Jesus Christ died for us
on the cross, rose again and will save all
who will come to Him by faith.
The strength and stability of God's Word
stand out as a beacon in the instability and
unsettledness of life. Because it is true,
eternal and changeless, we may trust it and
live by its truths. God has settled the
questions of sin, death, salvation and eternal
life. Do you need to settle these questions
for yourself? Read and study His Word.
