A Note From the Author
Please notice some of the firm, reassuring words and phrases that are used in the following verses :
I change not
neither shadow of turning
true from the beginning
endureth for ever
standeth for ever
to all generations
My counsel shall stand
I will do all my pleasure
hath he said, and shall he not do it?
hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
immutability of his counsel
by two immutable things
anchor of the soul
both sure and stedfast
Can there be any doubt then that God and His Word are our constant, and the anchor of our soul?
