1 Peter 1:24-25 For, “All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, 25 but the word of the Lord stands forever.” And this is the word that was preached to you.
People are searching, LORD. Everywhere I look people are looking for something that will last. The reality of this sinful world is that sometimes friendships fade, marriages fail, and people die. No one can escape this reality of corruption. Yet in YOU alone, through YOUR Word, I have received something eternal, something I can always count on, something I can confidently give to those who are searching and know it won’t fail them—YOUR Word of forgiveness and hope stands forever. Forgive me for taking your Word for granted and for failing to turn to it every day, especially when I am struggling. Fortify me today with your Word so I can ward off temptation while at the same time reflect your unconditional love by sharing YOUR Truth. Standing firm on your Foundation I pray. Amen.
