The Same Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." Hebrews 13:8
If you watch TV at all, you cannot have missed all the political ads and comedy pundits making fun of the candidates. Every night they show how candidates have switched views, changed positions or failed to keep promises. Their goal, I assume, is to undermine the credibility of the candidate so that we won’t trust them to lead our country.
Today I was reminded that one of the reasons I trust God is that He does not change, He keeps His promises and His Word does not change.
James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.
Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”
I expect human beings will change over time - some for the better, some for the worse. I find great comfort that the Lord will always be, “the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin.” (Exodus 34:6-7a)
Father, thank you that in a world where it is becoming increasing more difficult to trust people, we can find refuge and security in the unchangeableness of You and Your Word. Help me to get to know you so that I can trust you more and more each day.
