Enduring

I Did it Again: Failed

I did it again: failed. I failed to pay attention to my thoughts. I failed to check them against God’s Word.  I failed to return Jesus’s love by loving Him with all my heart, mind, soul, and strength. I failed to honor Him with my lips. Have you ever been there, done that? What happens when a Christian sins? Is God done with us? No.First Chronicles 16:34 and 1 Peter 1:25 tell us, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever” and “His Word endures forever.”  Every day God loves us. Every day, we can turn to His Word, the truth, and learn how to walk by it. If you, like me, did it again and failed God in some way, look to Him. He may not be smiling, but we have the opportunity to repent and see His smile again.

Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus Christ, thank You for Your enduring love and Word. Help us live it out in a reciprocal way with You and others.

you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God. But the word of the Lord endures forever.”

1 Peter 1: 23, 25

Did you know that the word “evolve” can’t be found in the Bible?  I searched the KJV, NAS, and NIV translations. Not once is “evolve” used.  “Endureth,” “endures,” and “enduring” can be found 60 times. In this day and age where people say their moral beliefs are “evolving,” I’m thankful for God who remains unchanged. He and His word “endure.” The Greek word “endure” means “remains, is kept, continues to be.” Aren’t you glad that God’s Word will not evolve into something different? He and His word endure.    

Heavenly Father, we praise You that You and Your Word are enduring. We can trust You for who You are and what You say. You and Your word ENDURE forever!
