In verses 89-96 of Psalm 119, the psalmist proclaims God’s faithfulness to each generation, to the earth He created and to me-the individual. His Word is eternal. If you understand the Word of God to be what God says to us in the Bible, you know the truths contained within it are eternally true. God does not lie and He will be forever faithful to uphold His Word. If you take the Word of God to mean Jesus, as in John it say 1:14 “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” then you know the living Word of God who is eternally with us and always faithful.
God is faithful to each generation and to the earth He created. vs 89-90 Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven [standing firm and unchangeable]. Your faithfulness continues from generation to generation;
You have established the earth, and it stands [securely]. They continue this day according to Your ordinances,
For all things [all parts of the universe] are Your servants. AMP
God is faithful to me vs 92-94 If Your law had not been my delight,
Then I would have perished in my time of trouble.
I will never forget Your precepts,
For by them You have revived me and given me life.
I am Yours, save me [as Your own];
For I have [diligently] sought Your precepts and required them [as my greatest need].
The psalmist arrives at his conclusion, the only one he feels he can make in light of all the evidence in the world and in his own life. verse 96 I have seen that all [human] perfection has its limits [no matter how grand and perfect and noble];
Your commandment is exceedingly broad and extends without limits [into eternity].
What is your conclusion about God and His faithfulness at this time in your life? Do you see His mercies new each morning (Lamentation 3:21-23)? Do you cling to the hope yo have in Jesus (Hebrews 10:23)? Do you know you are a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17)? Do you believe God is good and has good things planned for you (Jeremiah 29:11)? Do you have peace and rest in Jesus (John 14:27)? Look into His Word and claim His Word over your life, take His Word into your very being and you will undoubtedly come to the same conclusion the psalmist did. There is no limit to how grand and glorious God is and His Word stands now and for all eternity.
Standing on God’s Word is firm ground.
One thought on “Knowing Faithful God = Assurance +”
Highly descriptive post, I enjoyed that bit.
Will there be a part 2?
