The Righteousness and Salvation of God are indestructible. They can never be shattered. While the heavens one day will vanish like smoke, the righteous Character of God will not change. While the earth will one day wear out like a garment, the Work of God through His Salvation will remain permanent. As a people who are dependent upon God’s perfect Character and perfect Work, this is indeed good news for us. All that God is and does is not contingent upon our makeup or actions at all, only upon all that is of Him.
What we remember about God affects how we live for Him. People and entities can be very intimidating, and put pressure on us to appease them. But when we remember the Permanence and Power of God displayed through His Righteousness and Salvation, the fleeting approval of others fades away. The fear of mere mortals turns to dust as will each person on the earth. Nothing is worth our attention more than that which is eternal. No one is worth our ear more than He Whose instruction is good and perfect. We can look to no other source of strength, no other source of hope than the Almighty God Who reigns forever and ever. O people of the Lord, listen intently to His instruction, by which He displays His Righteousness. Hear His Word which tells the Truth of His Salvation. These things will never be destroyed.
