With what can the word of God be compared?

1 Peter 1:24-25 New International Version (NIV)
24 For,“All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;the grass withers and the flowers fall,
25 but the word of the Lord endures forever.”[a] And this is the word that was preached to you.
1 Peter 1:25 Isaiah 40:6-8 (see Septuagint)
The word announced to all is permanent and unalterable, this message you bring me today, Dad, these two verses bring me in context the comparison with the grass of the field whose most beautiful part (the flower) is short lived.
I understand that nothing is lasting in this world, all things have a useful life and then comes the degeneration and death.
I can discern that in my life this message is to keep me awake and alert about things that are truly important and lasting; the things of the kingdom of heaven.
It is in your word beloved Father that I can hold on and remain confident that they will remain forever.
Did you have any doubt?
There is no controversy about the infallibility of God's word. Heaven and earth shall pass away but God's word endures forever. This is worthy to be accepted. Amen.
Nothing lasts forever, only God and his word does!
God in his love has given us something that endures forever which is his word.
Good question Tomas.
Love is enduring if you find the real person.
