All flesh is like grass,
and all its glory like a flower of the grass.
The grass withers, and the flower falls,
but the word of the Lord endures forever.
And this word is the gospel that was proclaimed to you.
1 Peter 1:24-25 (CSB)
A plumeria blossom looks sturdy to the eye, but soon after it’s fully blossomed, it falls off and gets trampled on by those passing by. It goes from glory to the ground in a matter of a couple of days, but not so with the word of God. His Word endures — through every circumstance, through every unseen pain, through every mundane routine.
And not only does it endure, it endures forever. His Word lasts into eternity, and it won’t change even when we do — even when we pass from death to new life. His promises will endure; His truths will remain the same.
Our faith isn’t built on shifting sand. It is built on a solid foundation. So let us stand firm on it. Let’s not be so easily persuaded by the whims and wooing of the world, and instead, let’s root ourselves in the Word of God and not be shaken from it.
His Word endures -- through every circumstance, through every unseen pain, through every mundane routine. Click To Tweet
