Scripture and a Picture – How we learn that the Word of God Stands forever

Scripture and a Picture – How we learn that the Word of God Stands forever

Continuing on from my study of Isaiah 40:8 on Word of God Speak, today I would like to encourage you to continue to memorize this Scripture.

The grass withers and the flowers fall (fade), but the Word of God stands forever.

I have been encouraging you to learn Scripture through repetition and through art. This week I have tried to paint in two different Bibles. Here are the results.

Please join us at our Facebook Group called Word of God Speak Community where we continue to share our successes, ideas and thoughts about the Scripture for the week.

As I studied this verse I thought about the weaknesses of man – how sin has made the world not the way God intended it. Our flesh is weak. We cannot save ourselves. And our friends can’t save us. Beauty fades, We die.

So we look to the Light – a portal to the unseen. A Hope beyond this life. This is God’s promise to us.

That’s what the Word of God can do for us, that flesh cannot. The Word of God leads us to Jesus who has bridged the gap to allow us to live with God forever.  Eternal.

The words from the song I linked on Sunday from I will Not be Shaken by Vineyard:

When the nations crumble
The word of the Lord will stay
Kings may rise and fall
His love will endure
Though the strong may stumble
The joy of the Lord is strength

To my soul
I will not be shaken
I will not be moved
I will not be shaken

Then I read chapter 19 of AW Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy, entitled The Grace of God. Here is part of his opening prayer:

We are astonished and marvel one so holy and dread should invite us into Thy banqueting house and cause love to be the banner over us.

Here is His Banner over me is Love by Hillsong.
