Vs. 89 — Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven.

From:  Lange’s Commentary on the Holy Scriptures: Psalms

The heavens are mentioned with reference to their unchangeableness, as in Pss. 89:3; 30:37, not as a locality. So the firm establishment of the earth, as an actual proof and as the theatre of the unchangeable faithfulness of God (Geier, Hupfeld, Del.).

Prayer:

Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. All that you have created in the heavenlies are established as You have spoken. The countless stars obey You. The galaxies obey You. The sun, the moon, the planets–all obey you, down to every neutron and proton that You spoke into existence and into their place.

Oh that I would be so obedient to Your Word. I am not; I confess: Forgive me.
