In a classroom a student was being disruptive. The teacher quickly pointed at the student and said, “In the corner!” The Student immediately got up and stood in the corner. He knew He had been caught! While in grade school, did your teacher ever have you to stand in the corner? If so, (like me), you probably deserved to be there. I’m sure you were a little embarrassed, and couldn’t wait to sit down and join the other students. Sometimes the punishment of standing in the corner could seem like forever.
Spiritually speaking, we don’t have to stand in the corner anymore. Jesus has come and taken our place “in the corner.” He took on our punishment of sin and made it possible for us to stand in the power of His Word. His Word will hold up. It will “stand” the test. It will “stand” forever. When we accept the Lord Jesus as our Savior, we will no longer have to stand in the corner; just repent, sit down and learn of Him. In His Word, you can now stand forever, never needing to be cornered again.
“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. ( Isaiah 40:8 ESV).
I will keep on thanking God for the endurance and strength in His Word. By Hertistine Washington/keeponthanking.com
