Psalms 119:89-90

89 Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.     A statement of fact from David.   God’s word is the final authority, it stands firm in the Heavens and it even moves the Heavens when He speaks.    I really don’t think anything else has to be said about this statement, it’s a statement of affirmation of God’s authority and the authority of HIS word.   Even in David’s time, God’s word is considered the final authority.   Is it so now?   That’s something many “christians” debate and argue over.  The inerrancy of the Bible.  Some say there’s “stuff” that was left out, or should have been put in, or that man mistranslated….seriously though, If we believe God is Omnipotent as well as Omnipresent, than isn’t it possible that HE knew what would go into the Bible and constructed events, people, and circumstances to have exactly the items, stories, writers, etc written into the BIBLE we accept as God’s word?  To me, what’s in the Bible is exactly what HE planned to have in the BIBLE.  End of discussion.  

90 Your faithfulness continues through all generations; you established the earth, and it endures.  I love David’s basic statements of fact.   God’s faithfulness is everlasting and unending.   God set the boundaries and the breadth of the earth, and, so far, Man hasn’t changed it.   Only God will destroy the earth.   Man may screw it up, but God will eventually destroy it according to Revelations.   What God creates, endures.   Man in our limited capacity will alter and screw it up, but we can’t destroy it if God created it.   I like the  focus of this verse, it’s about God’s faithfulness, I may have keyed in on the fact that God created the earth and it endures, but I think David’s focus is more on the fact that God’s faithfulness is what is everlasting.   God will  be there for whomever seeks after HIM, and HE will be faithful unlike his creation who forgets and is weak quite often.  Thank  you Father, for your faithfulness when I’m not.
