6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath; for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment; and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner. But my salvation shall be forever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.
7 Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart I have written my law, fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.
8 For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool. But my righteousness shall be forever, and my salvation from generation to generation.
There are so many things in this world that seem big and imposing. We are intimidated by certain people because they seem so powerful. We need to remember that when we are righteous, when we trust in the Lord, when His law is written in our hearts, we are on a foundation more solid than anything we see around us. It can and will all vanish, but the foundation we build upon when we follow the Lord is a truly permanent and unchanging foundation: one which will last longer than this world.
