1. Application

God’s Word cannot be thwarted

1 Kings 16:34 (ESV)

34 In his days Hiel of Bethel built Jericho. He laid its foundation at the cost of Abiram his firstborn, and set up its gates at the cost of his youngest son Segub, according to the word of the LORD, which he spoke by Joshua the son of Nun.

Not even the most determined, aggressive, and hostile opposition to God and his Word will ever be able to do anything but confirm the powerful, living Word. Nothing of that Word will remain unfulfilled. This is reason for rejoicing. Absolutely nothing can break the power of the Word.
