The Only Settled Word

I don't know about you, but I don't like for anything to be unsettled!  I have no comfort zone when "things are up the air."  In many regards, we live in a time and in a world where much is unsettled.  Turmoil in the Middle East.  Markets that are in free fall.  Domestic violence running rampant.  I prefer, "resolve."  I prefer, "decisiveness."  I prefer, "settled!"  We settle elections.  We settle athletic contests.  We settle where the loyalty of our life is going to lie.  I believe in being, "settled!"  The psalmist brings great resolve and confidence to our hearts when he brings us the incredible truth, "God's Word is settled in heaven." (v. 89)  There may be debate among those on this earth that do not know our Lord but in heaven where everything is perfect and eternal, "God's Word is settled!"  We can take Him at His Word!  I knew a salesman once that as he was trying to close a deal would say to his would be client, "I promise you but I can't guarantee it?"  I am not even sure what all of that means but I know this, with that salesman, there was some chance you weren't going to get what he promised.  Not so with our Lord!  His Word is His bond! He delivers what He promises!  He has been faithful to His Word to all generations!  His Word was true!  His Word is true!  His Word will be true!  He promises, He guarantees it!  His integrity and honor is at stake and the foundations of heaven have His Word!
