The words, “Forever O LORD;” jumped off the page and into my mind. Forever. Can we even begin to grasp the meaning of forever? No earthly treasure, no person, no animal, no house, no car; nothing is built to last forever. Some things are life time guaranteed but even those things don’t proclaim “forever.”
This passage declares that God’s Word is settled in heaven, forever. His words are yes and amen and cannot be changed or revoked by any one. His Word is just as true today as it was the moment it was penned onto parchment paper. It was settled in heaven then and it’s settled in heaven now.
God’s law is to be our delight both now and always. One of the names of Jesus is the Word. He sits at the right hand of His Father interceding for us. Every word Christ utters on our behalf is settled between He and His Father. He is the Lord and He changes not.
When a judge utters a sentence for a person; it’s forever settled in the judge’s heart and mind. It will remain true for the person for as long as the judge pronounces his or her sentence. Our just Judge has written out our sentence as well. We were condemned to die but when we believed in Jesus as our Lord and Savior; we became redeemed. We are forever free in Christ and our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
Our eternal life is settled in heaven both now and forever. What a mighty God we serve!
Prayer in Motion:
Oh Lord, thank You for settling Your Word in heaven for me. When I was condemned to die; you wrote a pardon for me. No one can erase my name from the Lamb’s Book of Life. I love You Lord. In Jesus Name. Amen
