grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands
Change can be threatening to many of us, Yet our lives are filled with
constant changes; our bodies change, our moods change, the weather
changes, governments change, etc. Although life is easier and more
comfortable when things remain the same change comes and many times when
we expect it the least. We are not always consistent with our decisions
and change our minds or say things that we really don't mean. In
the midst of our ever changing lives there is One who remains
unchangeable, One whose word is true, One who never breaks a promise,
and whose every act is birthed in love. When we begin to feel unsure of
ourselves and the world surrounding us, we can know that God never
changes. He has always been, and will never cease to exist.
His love and character has remained the same through the ages. He
is perfect in all His ways. So when life changes and leaves us feeling
un-settled we can trust and remain secure in the knowledge that our God
is the same today, yesterday and forever.
Thank you for your
faithfulness. No matter how many things in my life may change I am
secure in You. You are my hope and the anchor for my soul. I know
this world will keep changing but I am standing firmly on the rock of my
salvation. I am secure in You.
