Your statutes, Lord stand firm; holiness adorns your house for endless days. Psalm 93:5
Every nation, every city and village has a set of rules to help govern their people. The set of rules are guided by how they want the people to live and act within their boundaries.
Throughout time many of the rules that a nation, or some other place has, change. They change because people change and want something different. Rules change because people change. No one is able to stay exactly the same all the time.
It is very common today to see groups of people fighting over what rule should be in place, removed or changed. Rules are often made by the majority or those who are in power, so are subject to feelings, rather than eternal truth.
In this psalm it is written that God’s statutes, rules are firm. These statutes are done with holiness for all eternity, never ending.
God is a never changing God. He is the same today, yesterday and forever. Since He never changes He is able to lay down the perfect law or commands for men to follow.
Every command that God gives is given out of perfect love. They are given with the best interest of man in mind. Since they are given this way they are solid and stand firm forever. There is no changing of the laws of God as there are with the laws of man.
Many people despise laws and the commands of God. They see them as limiting and punishing. Yet, God’s laws are in place to build a person up and make him more like Jesus, not to destroy, kill and punish.
When one follows God’s laws, he is able to walk in peace and harmony. He is able to know a true life of joy and love.
Take time to look into the laws and commands of God. Notice that each one is set there to build you up and help you live your life for God. They are set to make you ore like Jesus every day.
You do not have to fear that God will suddenly change His commands. They will remain the same forever.
As you take time to follow the commands of God, you will begin to walk in His holiness and build His kingdom as He desires. You will know His great love for you and others more and more.
Hold on to God’s commands each day.
I pray today that you will know the love of God; that you will know God’s commands are holy; that you will know the value of God’s commands; and that you will obey God with your whole life.
