The Fixed Laws of Heaven and Earth
Daily Bible Reading – Jeremiah 33, 34; Psalm 74; 1 John 5
Today’s Key Passage – Jeremiah 33:19-26
Most things in life are fairly unpredictable. We never know what opportunities or challenges we might face tomorrow, or where we will be in five years. There are, however, certain things that we can count on to be predictable. For example, we know that on this day in 2111, the sun will rise at 6:56 am and set at 8:04 pm here in Texas. In addition, we know that the next total solar eclipse will occur on November 13, 2012, and that Halley’s Comet will be seen again on July 28, 2061. We are able to predict all of these things because there are a fixed set of laws that govern the movement of everything in the universe.
In today’s key passage, God uses these fixed laws of Heaven and earth to illustrate the certainty of His promises to His covenant people. He says, “If I have not established my covenant with day and night and the fixed laws of heaven and earth, then I will reject the descendants of Jacob and David my servant and will not choose one of his sons to rule over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” (Vss. 25-26) Just as we can trust in the movement of the heavens, we can trust in the promises of God. We can trust Him when He says He hears our prayers (1 John 5:14-15), He will provide for us (Matthew 6:31-32), and that we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:8) Most importantly, we can trust Him when He says we can have eternal life. (John 3:16) Just as God’s laws have governed the universe since creation, His promises for each of us are sure and everlasting. Trust in Him, and know that He is unchanging and infallible.
