“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”

Wow, what an amazing sentence. Regardless of how things around us change, God’s word will never fade.  His promise to us is eternal.  Isaiah 40:8 is a powerful verse that I often find myself coming back to for encouragement. A powerful illustration that we are able to use as a reminder as we look at God’s creation.

Our trust in Him should never fade either.  Unfortunately, we are easily distracted by the daily stress of life, and when awful circumstances occur we tend to forget who we need to put our trust in completely.  With all the things that are changing in our lives on any given day, it is comforting to know that God’s word will stay the same. Having a constant to keep us grounded is important.

Putting trust in other people can lead to disappointment. However, we know that no matter what situation arises, we can confide in our Savior. Take a moment and spend time in scripture when you are going through hard times and even when everything is going well.  Referring back to God’s word is a great way to strengthen your relationship with Him and to grow spiritually.
