“He has given food to those who fear Him; He will remember His covenant forever. He has made known to His people the power of His works, in giving them the heritage of the nations.” (Psalm 111:5-6)

How long is the memory of the Lord? When will He forget what He has promised? We think in human terms, but the Lord God, Creator of all things created time. He who is beyond time knows all things because He sees all things. When He gives a promise, it is more sure than the creation, for it is from the Creator. Live in His covenant, for it is sure. Live trusting His promises, for they shall come to pass.

Lord, I listen to those in this world who tell me things and I believe them, yet I will not believe the things You tell me. Turn my heart that I may trust You above all things. Guide me in Your goodness that I may live into the life You have promised. Through all that comes, let me see You above all things. Your works are forever and Your promises will never fail.

Lord Jesus, You who are the promise of grace, lead me in the promised grace that I will learn how to abide in You. Day by day, guide me in the goodness You have brought that in spite of what happens in this world I may trust You and the salvation You make possible. Help me to see that heaven and earth shall pass away, but Your Word is forever. Through You are the promised ones made new.  Amen.
