“He sends out His word and melts them; He causes His wind to blow, and
the waters flow. He declares His word to Jacob, His statutes and His judgments
to Israel.  He has not dealt thus with
any nation; and as for His judgments, they have not known them.  Praise the Lord!”  (Psalm 147:18-20)

The Lord’s Word will come to
pass just as He has spoken it.  He sends
out His Word and it accomplishes what He speaks.  Do not trust in the words of men which speak
to us today and change tomorrow.  Trust
in the One who made all worlds and knows the plans He is bringing to
fruition.  Come then into the realm of
the Lord and live according to His never-failing promises.

Lord, You know the plans You have made. 
Guide me according to Your Word that I may now and always abide in You
and You in me.  Lead me in the Word You
have given that I may be guided according to Your Word and not by the vanity of
this world.  Help me now and always to
hear Your Word clearly and abide as You would have me abide according to Your

Lord Jesus, Word made flesh, You
have spoken the words of everlasting life. 
Guide me now and always to see that in You is the hope of every
people.  Lead me in Your will to know
that apart from You there can never be hope, but that in You is nothing but
hope.  Teach me, O Lord, that I may learn
from You, become like You and walk with You in all of Your ways.  Amen.
