Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens, Your faithfulness to the skies. Psalm 36:5 (NIV)
There's that word again.
We've heard it year after year on Survivor...you know, Outwit, Outlast, Outplay.
Today I read it on my new antiperspirant/deodorant.
Now, on the container, antiperspirant is listed first and deodorant second. Naturally I assumed that their claim applied to both. No. Upon closer inspection, it's just the odor protection that is supposed to "outlast" my day.
I felt a little mislead and disappointed. For a moment anyway.
Then I was flooded with thoughts of the only One who promises anything that truly Outlasts. This verse immediately came to mind.
For the LORD is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:5
God and God alone outlasts, outloves, and outreigns! Let's put our trust in Him.
He's the true "invisible solid"!
Teach me Your way, LORD, that I may rely on Your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear Your Name. Psalm 86:11
That's my prayer today.
