For the truths sake, which dwells in us, and shall be with us for ever.
2 John 1:2
The truth of God’s word is eternal. Jobs come and go, relationships often change, even we ourselves often change the things we like and even believe. Our world is not static, it is ever changing. That’s why the stability and enduring nature of God’s promises are so loved and valuable to us. Regardless of what we do there are a thousand mercies calling our names. His word was with me when I was born and will support me to my final breath. When storms blow in, His word is our shelter. When I am surrounded by enemies on every side, His word upholds and strengthens me. According to today’s verse, His truth dwells in us and will keep us even until the days of eternity. Here are some powerful words from Charles Spurgeon on today’s verse.
“What a thousand mercies are wrapped up in the assurance that the truth will be with us for ever; will be our living support, our dying comfort, our rising song, our eternal glory; this is Christian privilege, without it our faith were little worth. Some truths we outgrow and leave behind, for they are but rudiments and lessons for beginners, but we cannot thus deal with Divine truth, for though it is sweet food for babes, it is in the highest sense strong meat for men. The truth that we are sinners is painfully with us to humble and make us watchful; the more blessed truth that whosoever believes on the Lord Jesus shall be saved, abides with us as our hope and joy. Experience, so far from loosening our hold of the doctrines of grace, has knit us to them more and more firmly; our grounds and motives for believing are now more strong, more numerous than ever, and we have reason to expect that it will be so till in death we clasp the Savior in our arms.”
So whatever you are facing today you can rest assured; He has you in His hand. If you will take time today to ponder His precious truths found in the written word, you will find incredible strength for your journey. You will find grace that covers all your sin, power from the Spirit to live a better life, and abundant rest in your soul that will keep you until the great day. You have more available to you than you can ever know.
