"Your Word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens." NIV
"Forever, O Lord, thy Word is settled in heaven." KJV
How do we know what God's actual words are? He spoke them to men inspired by the Holy Spirit, to be written down as a permanent record for all generations. God desires all of us to know His Word and this is the way He chose. From the time He spoke "Let there be light," His words have remained in the endless space of the universe and in our hearts. His Word is set, never to be revoked or changed. It is fresh and never out of date. It will be the measure by which we all are judged. We are to conform to His Word and never try to make His Word fit our own agendas.
Heavenly Father, we praise and magnify Your name that You have given us Your Word so that have a solid base to know how You would have us live in this world. Give us a greater hunger for Your Word and help us to hide it in our hearts. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
