Prayers and Promises: Isaiah 40:8

The grass withers and the flowers fall,
   but the word of our God endures forever.” (Isaiah 40:8)

Isn’t this so true?  Just this past summer, we went through the biggest drought in Texas history.  My grass was not green…it was yellow/brown… it was burned!  It withered and died.   The flowers in my yard did the same.   But you know what?  On days that we thought “Oh, Lord, it’s another 106* weather day.”  He brought the rain…. surely it was only for 5 minutes, but his word…his promises.  They endure forever.   His word is as true today as it was yesterday and it will be tomorrow.     There is no way that I can keep my word for as long as the Lord has kept his word.   I do my very best, but I still fail here.  I can always count on the Scriptures to be truthful and to lead me the right way.  Thank you, Lord, for your never ending promises and for your Word, which is the truth forever.
