“For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.” (Ps. 33:4)
There is nothing else we have in this world like the Word of God!
FIRST—God’s Word is EDUCATIONAL.
It says, “the word of the LORD is right.” God’s Word is never wrong; it is always right! No other book can claim that attribute like the Word of God. The Bible gave details about things such as the shape of the earth and things about the way the human body works long before scientists and doctors figured it out. The Bible was used in almost every early American classroom. Why? Because it is educational.
SECOND—God’s Word is EXCEPTIONAL.
(v.6) says, “By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.” No other book can claim that kind of power! God’s Word is exceptional in that it is alive and is the record of life-giving words.
THIRD—God’s Word is ETERNAL.
(v.11) says, “The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.” Good books come and good books go, but the Bible is unique because it “standeth for ever.” That means that what was good for your great, great, great grandparents is still good for you, today! God’s Word is truth and truth never changes. It was here long before we were born and will be around long after we are gone. Matt. 24:35 says, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”
Take some time this morning to thank God for the Word of God we have. It is educational, exceptional, and most of all eternal!
