Isaiah 40:6-8
"A voice says, Cry [prophesy]! And I said, What shall I cry? [The voice answered, Proclaim:] All flesh is as frail as grass, and all that makes it attractive [its kindness, its goodwill, its mercy from God, its glory and comeliness, however good] is transitory, like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades, when the breath of the Lord blows upon it; surly [all] the people are like grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever."

Slobodan & Ljiljana KrstevskiWhat an amazing word of God through the prophet, Isaiah! It says here in verse 7a, "The grass withers, the flower fades…" Grass is so frail. When you step on it, it has to bend. When you cut it with a lawn mower, it's gone. Grass doesn't have much power, and yet God compares it to our flesh, our bodies. In the same way grass withers our bodies will wither as well. Think about a flower now. Flowers only last for a short while. They are only attractive for a season. In the same way flowers fade so will all the good qualities of our bodies. It says in verse 6b that all the things that make the flesh attractive (the kindness, the goodwill, the mercy from God, the glory and comeliness) are transitory like the flower. So everything that makes us attractive is like the grass and the flower. They will all wither away and fade.

But there is one thing that will last forever, and that is the most beautiful part of this passage. It says in verse 8b, "…but the word of our God will stand forever." The Word of God is never frail; it will never fade. So if you take the Word of God and put it into your heart and into your spirit, that Word will last forever. If the Word of God is in your heart, then you will last as long as the Word of God lasts. So if you want to stand forever, then plant the Word of God into your heart. That's where the Word has to be if it is going to enable you to last forever.
