    All very true. However, The Word of God is not limited or confined to tge Bible. Isaiah 40:8 also speaks to the "still small voice" we as believers hear. This verse is all encompassing of every Word of God. What a joy to know and have consolation that God's Words both written and spoken endure forever. Isaiah really shows wisdom here and his definitively profound statement ensures us that since God's Words are eternal, so are His promises.
