“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever.”
A man dialed a wrong number and got the following recording: “I am not available right now, but I thank you for caring enough to call. I am making some changes in my life. Please leave a message after the beep. If I do not return your call, you are one of the changes.”
Isn’t it wonderful to know that our God never changes? He’s never too busy to listen, never too weak to help, and never too unloving to care.
He is the same God of yesterday. The same God who delivered Daniel from the lion’s den, David from Goliath, and the children of Israel from Pharoah is our God right now. We can look back through the pages of Scripture and see that God has always been faithful.
He is the same today. Things all around us change every day. Our friends change, our jobs change, politics change, economies change, our bodies change, the weather changes. Our life is full of constant change. But what a comfort to know that God never changes. He is always faithful, always present, and always loving.
He will be the same forever. No matter what trial you face in your future, God will be there with you. We can be comforted in knowing that God will never leave us. Hebrews 13:5 says, “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” Christ will not leave us in life, and He will not leave us in death. God will be the same for all eternity, and we can rest in His faithfulness.
What a privilege it is to serve a God who never changes. Anchor your hope in Him, and claim His promises for today.–Dr. Paul Chappell
