God’s Word Doesn’t Change (a daily devotional)

Your righteous laws are eternal.” Ps 119:160 NIV

A publishing house advertised: Ten books to read before you die. And the Bible didn’t make the list!

Amazing; if there’s one book you should read it’s the Bible!

When a well-known Christian author replaced her favorite cookbook with a “New and Updated” version, she said: “It wasn’t the same. It had been adapted for convenience. And people are trying to do the same with God’s Word; adapt it to make it more convenient, time-saving, and easier to follow.”

The truth is, God’s Word never changes. The results of sin are the same: ‘The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ‘ (Ro 6:23 NKJV).

God’s plan of salvation hasn’t changed: ‘By grace you have been saved through faith…not of works, lest anyone should boast’ (Eph 2:8-9 NKJV).

God’s method for finding guidance is in the same place: ‘The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul. The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes’ (Ps 19:7-8 NKJV).

His solution for anger is still the same: ‘Rest in the Lord…Cease from anger, and forsake wrath…it only causes harm‘ (Ps 37:7-8 NKJV).

His method for finding peace hasn’t changed: ‘Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known…and the peace of God…will guard your hearts and minds’ (Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV).

The Psalmist said, ‘All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.'”

Bottom line: “new and improved” simply isn’t in the Book.
