For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast. (Ps 33:9, emphasis added)
What does “it stood fast” tell us? Here’s the same verse in the The Bible in Basic English (BBE) version:
For he gave the word, and it was done; by his order it was fixed for ever. (Ps 33:9 BBE)
This verse is communicating the understanding and knowledge that, at God’s Word, things are permanently created! They are established and secured.
That’s the power inherent in God’s Word. Once we fully understand that God’s Word is creative, superior, powerful, and invincible—we have anchored this knowledge in truth and supplied our faith with rapid growth food.
As we feast upon God’s Word and meditate upon its message, we become assured not only of God’s love but also of His power to establish and to secure the very thing that it is sent to achieve. His Word stands forever. Hallelujah!
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever. (Isa 40:8)
