89 Your word, Lord, is eternal;
it stands firm in the heavens.
90 Your faithfulness continues through all generations;
you established the earth, and it endures.
91 Your laws endure to this day,
for all things serve you.
92 If your law had not been my delight,
I would have perished in my affliction.
93 I will never forget your precepts,
for by them you have preserved my life.
94 Save me, for I am yours;
I have sought out your precepts.
95 The wicked are waiting to destroy me,
but I will ponder your statutes.
96 To all perfection I see a limit,
but your commands are boundless.
“Your faithfulness continues through all generations.” Everything in our lives depends on God’s faithfulness ― particularly our salvation. Many of us often say (truthfully) that we are not saved by good behavior, but do we believe it? If we examine all of Scripture, we find that God took the initiative to save fallen humanity, which was not even seeking Him. “I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not seek me.” (Is. 65:1) If God reached out to save us when we were ignoring him, will He not carry us through everything we must face once we have received Christ? Paul wrote: “If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny himself.” (2 Tim. 2:13) and reminded us “It does not, therefore, depend on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.” (Rom. 9:16) These truths are not in Scripture merely to comfort us. Knowing that my spiritual condition is completely dependent on God’s faithfulness is absolutely pivotal. Without knowing this, we can’t properly live out our faith. Hence, “Apart from me, you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)
