God’s Word is Absolutely Trustworthy

God’s Word is Absolutely Trustworthy
by Brenda D. Flowers

Psalm 119:105 (NKJV) Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.

How do we know when someone speaks truth or something is trustworthy?

We often base our conclusion on the dependability of that person or thing. When someone says he will do something and he follows through on his word then we conclude he is trustworthy.

There is often an element of faith involved to show we believe that someone or something is trustworthy. For example, when a person gets in an airplane to travel somewhere, he trusts he will arrive at his destination. Yet, where is the passenger’s faith placed when the plane in flight suddenly experiences turbulence or an unexpected emergency?

The word  (8354) trustworthiness is defined in the Dictionary of Bible Themes-Bible Gateway as “that quality of truthfulness and dependability which rewards faith. God is trustworthy and his people are called to be trustworthy in their dealings with other people. Scripture warns against pinning one’s hopes on people and things that will prove untrustworthy. God is trustworthy. God’s words are trustworthy.  2 Sa 7:28 See also Ps 19:7; Ps 111:7; Da 2:45; 1 Ti 1:15; 1 Ti 4:9-10; Rev 21:5” ( Scripture index copyright Martin H. Manser, 2009)

In America, our founding fathers understood the importance of putting faith in the Word of God as the foundation of truth. Our national motto is “In God We Trust.” Our young citizens need to be taught how our nation was founded on the principles found in the Bible and why. To this day, in the courts of law across our land, people place their hand on the Bible and swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

It is important as Christians to understand the Bible is the Word of God and can give us clear direction. The truth of God’s Word is absolute.

In the Bible, Jesus is proclaimed to be the Word of God.

John 1: 1-5, 14 NKJV In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. . . . And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

Prayer:  God, thank you for revealing to me by Your Spirit that Your Word is absolutely trustworthy. Please guide me by Your Spirit to share this with others. In Jesus name. Amen.
