For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven (Psalm 119:89).
Every verse in Psalm 119 helps us to appreciate the word of God even more. Psalm 119:89 brings three important truths before us:
1. God’s word is authoritative. The Psalmist points to the Bible’s origin when he writes “thy word” (referring to the LORD). Every word in Scripture is inspired, reliable and definitive (2 Timothy 3:16-17; John 17:17).
2. God’s word is firm. The psalmist says that God’s word is “settled.” The word here means “firm.” What God has said will endure forever (Matthew 24:35; 1 Peter 1:25).
3. God’s word is objectively true. It is from heaven. The Bible is not of human origin – it is higher than any earthly governing power (Acts 5:29).
Though our society makes consistent attempts to redefine morality and alter God’s laws, the word of God stands firm and will never change.
