The grass withers, the flower fades when the breath of the Lord blows on it; surely the people are grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. (Isaiah 40:7-8)
Hymn ELH 234:3-4 We Have a Sure Prophetic Word
Lo, what the Word in times of old
Of future days and deeds foretold
Is all fulfilled while ages roll,
As traced on the prophetic scroll.
Abiding, steadfast, firm, and sure
The teachings of the Word endure.
Blest all who trust this steadfast Word;
His anchor holds in Christ, the Lord.
O God, I thank you for your eternal Word, which shows me the way to salvation, by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Help me always to trust Your Word and promise. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
