    Verse 5 shows that God loves righteousness and so the unrighteousness conditions we see in the world today are not caused by them nor does he approve of them.

    The word of the Lord is never wrong : I can Trust His word to do exactly as He says. God works is His word and God is not a man that He should lie. He will never deceive me.

    Once we realized the Sovereignty of God and His holiness, love and grace, we cannot stop praising, worshipping and thanking Him, for He deserves it, and when we believed Jesus we have perfect peace even in the midst of trials. I will cast my cares upon Him for He cares for me. 1Peter 5:7

    In the beginning was the word and the word was God. God's word will always stand. The word of God is what we as believers have to live by. We must trust in God and continue to depend on His abundant mercies.
