A Word for Today: “Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 — Word For Life Says…

To say that Christ has won is an understatement. He has literally crushed, obliterated, and stands on the head of every adversary we may face today. The world may think they have won but Jesus will flip the script on them every time and show who He really is. He has “disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross,” (Col. 2:15; NIV). His enemies are being made a footstool at His feet (Hebrews 10:13; NIV). He is the King of all kings and Lord of all lords and will conquer everything and everybody that tries to war against Him (Revelation 17:14).In case you haven’t figured it out yet, WE ARE ON THE WINNING SIDE! Be of good cheer!

A Word for Today: “Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 — Word For Life Says…

Classic, always.

Trends ebb and flow like the waves of the sea.  Fads are cute at times.  But it is the classic that I am a fan of; things that endure the test of time.  These, if you see them one hundred years from now, are still in style and almost to the point of starting a trend of their own.  Because, as we all know, that which is truly a classic will never go out of style.

The classic is not only timeless, but it is beautiful in its reliability to stay what it is regardless of what trend or gimmicks others chase.  What is fashionable today may not be in style tomorrow, but that what is classic will always be a masterpiece even after the huff of the trend fades behind the scenes of the newest fad.

That is what I love about the Word of God – it is always classic.  It is always reliable, and it never changes regardless of what the world is currently chasing.  Be it the latest report, newest discovery or theory – God and His Word are unchanging is what James 1:17 tells us. The Apostle Peter then writes, “But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you” (1 Peter 1:25).

Let me tell you why this is so important.  There may be times when humanity and history try to rewrite His Word.  But, God’s standard, which is His Word, will always be pure and right.  The Bible tells us, “The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes” (Psalm 19:8).  Which means we have an unchanging foundation upon which to base our hope and belief.  We can completely trust in the wholeness and wholesomeness of the Word of God.

If there ever comes a time when you find yourself confused or dismayed by the latest, latest.  Remember God’s Word.  Purposely take the time to turn to it.  There, in those blessed pages, you will not only find that God’s Word is a treasure to behold that we are to desire more than the preciousness of gold (Psalm 19:10), but in its perfect beauty, you can find the wisdom needed to answer whatever you may face on any given day (Psalm 19:7).  In that Holy Book, you can also find counsel by which to guide your life (Psalm 119:24, 133; Proverbs 19:21), hope to encourage and inspire you to hang on in there and not to give up (Psalm 130:5), and so much more.

In our lifetime, we will see many things change like fads of the day do.  It is just wonderful to know that God, and His Word, will not change.  It will always be flawlessly beautiful and perfect.  Classic, always.
