“Who can understand his errors?

God is His Word

“The law of the LORD is perfect.”  Ps. 19:7 (NKJV) Words reflect a person’s true character.  They show what he or she truly is (Matt 12:34; Mark 7:15).  This is also true of God.  However, where human words are frail and finite, God’s words are creative, perfect, and powerful.  God’s Word (Hebrew, debar; Greek, logos […]

The God Who Keeps

“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling.” (Jude 24, NKJV) Economic upheaval and social strife at home.  Civil wars and natural catastrophes aboard.  All these cause us to continually feel anxious, apprehensive, and nervous.  The belief that God keeps us gives comfort and assurance at a time when both (comfort and […]

“Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:8 (NKJ) Our text for today’s WordBytes comes from the 107th division of the Psalms.
