Bible Reading: Psalm 119:89, Hebrews 4:12

Memory Verse: Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven [standing firm and unchangeable]. Psalm 119:89 (AMP)

Credit to the grace of God upon Dr. D. K. Olukoya. The Word of God is from the mouth of the prophets and the major source of that book is from the Bible. That is why it is called the book of books. Men, scientists, historians and many people have tried to discredit the Bible, but the Bible has always defeated them and won. Someone asked that great British preacher called Spurgeon to defend the Bible. Spurgeon said something quite profound. He said: “The Word of God is like a lion. You do not have to defend a lion. All you have to do is to let the lion loose and the lion will defend himself.” 

The Bible was written more that 1,600 years ago by more than 40 authors and they wrote from 3 different continents in 3 different languages. They spoke on hundreds of topics, sometimes very controversial subjects but inspite of the wideness in the geography of those who were writing it, they wrote down their words with agreement and harmony. As a scientist, it is instructive to know that science has backed up many of the Bible stories that we hear and that the Bible is filled with scientific and medical facts written thousands of years ago before men even discovered that it is true.

Many years back, some people gathered together to attack the Bible but all the points they were raising were defeated by the Bible. They decided to hold on to one, which is the story of Jonah. They said that scientifically, it does not make sense, it is not possible for a fish to swallow a man and the man would be inside that fish for 3 days and he would still be alive. But this is why God is always God and man will always be man. They were still arguing about it when one day, a man called James Bartley working in the sea was swallowed by a whale.

His colleagues who were fishing together with him saw him being swallowed by the whale. So they started to pursue the whale and were shooting at it but they could not get to kill that whale until about 3 days. They dragged the whale to the shore, cut this large whale open and were shocked to find out that he was still alive after 3 days. So, that completely silenced the critics. This story I just told you happened about 150 years ago. But last year, another one happened. Somebody called Michael Parkaday was swallowed again by a whale and he was vomited. He still remained alive. “Forever O Lord, thy Word is settled in heaven”.

Now, what is that particular Word God has given you – in career, business, academics, ministry, etc – be double sure that heaven and Earth may pass away, but it will surely come to pass. God is watching over His word to perform it in your life.

Quote:  Every Word of God is a covenant. It abides forever.
