Sometimes it seems that the problems of the world are so overwhelming that we are nearly at our wit's end. It seems that we are only a little short of dying and that we cannot continue on, but God is faithful to his word, and he will not leave us comfortless (John 14:18), nor will he ever leave us nor forsake us (Heb. 13:5).
Though the world pound the pressure of persecution, give its total of temptation, or grind us to grounds in its hazards, yet God's word stands fast and faithful.
As was David's due, they may mar his name, steal his substance, take away his crown, and do their best to kill him, yet these things are only human and earthly things, mundane to the core! They can have no lasting consequence to us, for our hope is in God and his word.
They cannot steal his eternal inheritance, his name in the book of life, or his standing before the Great God of Heaven through Jesus Christ, the Son. They can remove his joy only temporarily, for that joy returns when he prays and when he continues to trust God's precepts.
So, we should all put our trust in God's word, for it is there, as we read it, as we meditate upon it, as we memorize it, as we teach it, as we share it, we shall also grow in his grace and knowledge and have more and more confidence that his word will stand forever, and the things of earth will grow faintly dim in the light of his glory and grace.
