Endurance


Lamedh
This psalm is an acrostic poem. Each stanza begins with successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet. The verses of each stanza begin with the same letter of the Hebrew alphabet.

89 Your word, Lord, is eternal;
it stands firm in the heavens.
90 Your faithfulness continues through all generations;
you established the earth, and it endures.
91 Your laws endure to this day,
for all things serve you.
92 If your law had not been my delight,
I would have perished in my affliction.
93 I will never forget your precepts,
for by them you have preserved my life.
94 Save me, for I am yours;
I have sought out your precepts.
95 The wicked are waiting to destroy me,
but I will ponder your statutes.
96 To all perfection I see a limit,
but your commands are boundless. Psalm 119:89-96

The Word of God has stood the test of time. Thousands and hundreds of thousands have sought to tear it apart verse by verse and book by book. Rulers have tried to destroy the very existence of the Bible. Governments have shut down churches, jailed pastors and parishioners, and confiscated all their Bibles.

But the Bible continues to be read and spread even to this day. No other book has been as mistreated and abused as the Bible.

Let those words sink in a bit. Nobody has been able to destroy the Word of God as we know it.

There must be something to this Book that so many people want to obliterate it from the earth!

There must be something to this God who has preserved the Word of God from generation to generation!
