We celebrate God’s faithfulness; you can’t go wrong trusting His revelation. The psalmist declares that the Lord’s self-disclosure stands eternally in the Spirit Realm. Destroy this world, but His word will remain trustworthy. Every generation of humanity since Creation has seen His loyalty to His covenant promises. Creation itself still stands as a testimony of His patience with us; it’s existence hangs entirely on His expressed will.
Indeed, His loyalty and His promises both remain by His decree. It would cease to exist should He remove His active attention. It all serves to glorify Him. So it stands to reason that the psalmist would revere God’s revelation as God Himself and it has never failed him, always carrying him through the deepest sorrows.
What God has taught is burned into his heart; he can’t walk away from it. That calling from God is his very life. He’d be dead without it. He regards his life as the minimum just return, a personal possession of Jehovah. He is fully committed to pursuing God’s provision for living in this world.
So while the wicked are always plotting to capture him away from Jehovah, he cannot possibly take him mind off the prophetic revelations. Having watched a great many things run their course, particularly the accomplishments of human talent, he finds those things eventually collapse into the dust and forgotten. But the Law of God has no limits.
