Praying the Eternal Word of God

Your word, O Lord is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.  Psalm  119:89

Your word, O Lord is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. Psalm 119:89

What a glorious promise!   The word of God is eternal.  That means it is the same as it was when it was written.  It has the same power, the same comforting warmth, the same loving gentleness, and wisdom as it did 2000 or so years ago and most importantly it will be just as powerful, comforting, gentle and wise 2000 years from now.

I don’t know what you may be going through, but I encourage you to find some Bible verses that apply to your situation, write them down, and believe that the eternal word of God is working for you. If you don’t know where to look, go to google and do a search for Bible verses for ___________ (you fill in whether it is for healing, depression, love,  anger, substance abuse, marriage, family issues,  etc.).

Personally I use index cards  and will write one verse per card and  put them on my bathroom wall or refrigerator or will type the verses  out on 1/2 sheets of paper, print them out an put them in my Bible. That way they are handy when I do my devotions.  I also have a couple of books with Bible verses/prayers written in them for specific areas of life and will spend a few minutes reading over those scriptures.

One of the most comforting things you can do when going through a trial is to pray the word.  By that, I mean pray something like this, ”  God your word says _________ (fill in the scripture) and I believe that your word is eternal and stands firm in the heavens and I believe that you are going to  meet my need.  Thank you for your word and your promises.  Amen”.

Praying that way will help you to pray when you don’t know how and will help you get the word in your spirit.

My favorite verse in the Bible is John 10:10 ”  The thief comes to steal and kill and destroy;  I have come that they my life, and have it to the full.  Wow, that pretty much sums it up.  Satan (the thief) wants to steal from us, kill us, and destroy us.  However,  Jesus wants us to have a full life.  That means a life free from sickness, pain, emotional turmoil, poverty and lack, bad marriages, children not following God, and whatever else the thief is trying to do to reek havoc on your life.

So I encourage you today to take heart and remember that His word is standing firm in the heavens and is always the same.
