Message for October 17, 2021 from Pastor Shirley

     When I was growing up I remember hearing this saying “you can count on it” or “as sure as the sun sets.”  These were ways of saying it was a certain thing or a sure thing.  I found out in my life that sometimes people could not or would not keep their word.  There is one certainty in life that I know that I can depend on and that is God’s Word.  The faithfulness of God to His Word has proven over and over again in my life.        
      In a day when our world so desperately needs something of surety, the psalmist says “I have that certainty and it is found in God and through God’s Word.”                                 
       What you say goes, God,  and stays, as permanent as the heavens. Your truth never goes out of fashion; it’s as relevant as the earth when the sun comes up. Your Word and truth are dependable as ever; that’s what you ordered—you set the earth going. If your revelation hadn’t delighted me, I would have given up when the hard times came. But I’ll never forget the advice you gave me; you saved my life with those wise words. Save me! I’m all yours. I look high and low for your words of wisdom. The wicked lie in ambush to destroy me, but I’m only concerned with your plans for me. I see the limits to everything human, but the horizons can’t contain your commands! Psalm 119:89 Message
