Daily Devotion: The Bible Stands

Bible Reading: Psalm 119:89-96 

Key Verse: Verse 89 For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.”

Key Words: thy word is settled

Charles Spurgeon is said to have written the following in regard to the Word of God.

We went to a machine shop arriving a little early and, as we were looking around, we saw a pile of old, worn, battered, discarded hammers lying in one corner of the shop. We counted forty-seven hammers. We also saw a bright, unscarred anvil which looked as if it had never had a blow. I said to the man in charge, ‘How many anvils have you used to wear out that pile of hammers?’ ‘Oh,’ he replied, ‘just this one,’ pointing with pride to the anvil. ‘You know,’ said he, ‘the anvil wears out the hammers. The blows on the anvil only make it shine brighter.’ As I stood there and looked at that pile of discarded hammers, I thought of the Word of God and its enemies and critics. I thought of Rosseau, Tom Paine, Bob Ingersoll, Darrow and a host of others who have ridiculed the Word of God and passed on. When the last infidel and higher critic has taken his last sarcastic fling at the Word of God and gone to the scrap heap of hell, God’s Word will still be here. It is the Bible that wears out the skeptics. ‘For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.’

All I could possibly say is “Amen and Amen!!”

What to do:
Believe God’s Word. That will protect you.
Share God’s Word. That will convict others.
Learn God’s Word. That will aid you.
