The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever. Isaiah 40:8 NKJV
When we are dressed in the Armor of God and carrying the Sword of the Spirit which is the word of God, we can stand firm for “the word of our God stands forever”.

I thank You that Your word stands forever and that I can also, as a soldier in Your service dressed in Your Armor and wielding Your Sword.
I pray that Your Holy Spirit will help me to use the Sword effectively for Your glory. Amen.
