Timeless Hope

Little Thoughts For Big Days

Little Thoughts For Big Days

1 Peter 1:24-25
“For all men are like grass, and their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever.”

The lush greens that graced the trees of our glorious, Canadian summer have wrapped themselves in the colour of death as they fall to the ground. The lovely, floral blooms that once graced the garden have bowed their heads in submission to Jack frost and their once beautiful statures now stand curled and gnarled. Beauty fades! Youth ages! Strength wanes! Bodies deteriorate! Riches tarnish! Success passes! Friends leave! Possessions break and popularity dies! All humanity is mortal and fleeting and all of our material strivings eventually come to an end at the end of our road, or maybe even before. In what then, do we put our Hope? In what then do we put our Trust? I Peter 1: 24, 25 quotes old Testament, Isaiah 40:6-8 and gives clear encouragement that God’s Word remains steadfast and His work prevails. Time does not limit Him from carrying out His plan for a lost world. We must put our Hope and trust in an Everlasting God whose plan of salvation reaches to save the lost and whose words will remain powerful when all of creation bows to His sovereignty.

Isaiah 40: 6-8
“All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field.
the grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the Lord blows on them. Surely the people are grass. The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.”
