“The Word Firmly Fixed” ( 1 Peter 1: 24 – 25, HCSB ) by Carley Evans

After comparing flesh to grass which “withers” and to flowers which “fail,” Peter writes that “the Word endures forever.” Unlike flesh — which is subject to death and decay — the Word of God stands eternally.

 

Recall that “man does not live by bread alone but on every Word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.” (Deuteronomy 8: 3)

 

The psalmist asks God, “How can a young man keep his way pure?” And answers his own question, “By keeping Your Word.” (Psalm 119: 9) He says to God, “I treasure Your Word in my heart so I may not sin against You… I do not forget Your Word.” (Psalm 119: 11, 16) “Your Word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path.” (Psalm 119: 105)

 

The psalmist recognizes that God “gives [him] hope through [His Word].” (Psalm 119:49) God’s Word “is [his] comfort in affliction; [God’s] promise gives [him] life.” (Psalm 119: 50)

 

The psalmist declares, “I put my hope in Your Word.” (Psalm 119: 81) “Lord, Your Word is forever; it is firmly fixed in heaven.” (Psalm 119: 89)

  1. We can do some serious damage with the last verse Psalm 119:89. Firmly fixed in heaven– Eph. 1:20-23. The Word is firmly fixed in heaven. He’s not moving until all of His enemies are made His footstool (Heb. 10:12-13, Psalm 110:1). And we’re seated with Him in heavenly places (Eph. 2:6). There is nothing the enemy can do about it.
