Change

James 1:17
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.ESV.

 

One constant we all deal with each and every day is the continual process of change. Change happens every day. In hindsight, one could easily admit that life is designed to produce change. People make decisions that impact your life. Processes change. Circumstances evolve where everything is different today than it was yesterday.  When our foundation is shaken, life becomes unstable and unpredictable. The future looks bleak and the current situation unmanageable. Yet there is one constant that always remains the same: GOD.

Malachi 3:6 and Hebrews 13:8 state that HE doesn’t change. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Jesus summarized his message to his disciples of the blessed life in Matthew 7:24-27. He reminded them that when all of life’s constant problems and troubles are thrown your way, you better have a solid foundation under your feet. The words he spoke previously pertained to how we can live a more richer life than we ever imagined. But without a sure foundation, life can be treacherous.

Change with God is a whole lot better than change without Him. When one leans on him through the good times and bad, one becomes reassured that He is always there for us. Instead of suffering anxiety, worry, or self-pity, you come to realize as you trust HIM that something very good is going to come out of the mess you are currently in. Yes you may have to suffer for a while, or longer, but the end will definitely be much better than the beginning.

HE doesn’t change. As HE delivered the children of Israel, as HE leads his Church, and as HE prepares a place for you and me for eternity, we know HE is faithful and committed toward the fulfillment of HIS plan to birth a new age that will include you and me forever. As He blessed others, He will bless you. So let’s build our life on HIS foundation and watch in amazement what HE will do for you in your corner of the world.

Rooting For You in Christ!
