Psalm 119:49 (KJV)
(49) “Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.”
Why would the psalmist begin this verse with the word “remember?” When I think of the word “remember,” there are many verses that come to mind, but I want to focus on this verse. Remember. This word brings to mind something that is spoken or a statement that is made. It is something that comes to mind. In this scripture, the writer is speaking to God. The servant is the individual speaking. He says that what God has promised him has given him hope. Why would the servant say God has caused him to hope? The servant knows that the Words of the Father would happen. God is not man that He should lie. God’s Word cannot be compared to man’s words.
Isaiah 55:10-11 (KJV)
(10) “For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: (11) So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
Notice that Isaiah compares God’s promises to that of the stability of the rain and snow from Heaven. It does water the earth, and its coming causes all things to grow. These two natural events are given as examples concerning God’s unchangeable Word. When God speaks, it will not return to Him without it fulfilling what He has spoken. You can be assured of that. That is why the servant can say that he has received the promise of God by faith. God will not fail him. God will perform what He says He will do.
How can I help you to understand what God is trying to say to you? I do not want to repeat what I already said. God’s Word is steadfast and sure. It will not fail. He will never let you down!
