|“For the word of the Lord is right and true…”|
Have you ever engaged in a passionate conversation only to stop dead in your verbal tracks when you couldn’t find exactly the right word? If you've never experienced this phenomenon, just wait. I assure you that as you get older you will try to explain something and you won't be able to find the … err … right word.
As believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we can relax a bit. You see, when it comes to something as important as the pathway laid out before us in our lives, we have an inside track.
God has graciously given us His Word—both the Living Word, His one and only Son, and His written Word, the Bible. And, God's Word is… Well, let me share what the Psalmist has written in Psalm 33:4-5:
For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
Not only is God's Word right and true, don't you just really appreciate the fact that He is faithful in all He does? I know I do.
But, I also realize that God loves righteousness and justice. Sadly, apart from some pretty serious help from the Holy Spirit, I am not able to become righteous on my own. As long as I am on this earth, I will always remain a sinner—yes, a sinner saved by God's grace—but still a sinner.
Thankfully, we believers can rely on God's Word. Bathed in God's love, we can experience His unfailing, absolute, all-encompassing truth.
So, we don’t have to falter, pause, and search for the right “word” when it comes to our walk of faith. God’s Word is always right and true.
