Isaiah 40:7–8 – The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: Because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: Surely the people is grass. 8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: But the word of our God shall stand for ever.
People come and go, that is simply the fact of life. No matter how powerful or prestigious someone was or is, pretty soon they will be for the most part forgotten. There is only one thing that stands forever. The word of our God! It never ever changes, fades, or goes away. It is something you can always count on.
