The Word of God Stands Forever

Isaiah 40:6-8

The voice said, "Cry out!" And he said, "What shall I cry?" "All flesh is grass, And all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.
The grass withers, the flower fades, Because the breath of the LORD blows upon it; Surely the people are grass.
The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever."

All the goodliness and glory of man; all that is excellent and valuable in him, or belonging to him, or that is thought to be so, his riches, honours, strength, beauty, wisdom, and knowledge; yes, all his seeming holiness and righteousness; which are all fading and perishing, like a bright flower, which appears lovely for a while, and on a sudden falls off, or is cropped, or trampled upon; to which a flower of the field is more liable than that of the garden. It all that man touches or enteres into fades - BUT the word of God stands forever! (1 Peter 1:25)
