Always The Same
We are living in an ever changing world. It seems that every day something is changing and we have to make the necessary adjustments to meet the changes that are happening around us. Some things change for the better and some for the worse, but each of us should realize that change will happen rather we like it or not. Many times we resist change because we do not think there was anything wrong with the way things were in the first place. Change is often necessary, but many times difficult to accept. Not only do things change, the people around us change, and the person we thought we knew we do not know anymore. With everything around us changing there is one constant that we have and that is Christ, because He never changes.
The Scripture reminds us, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. I encourage you today to remember that while everything and even everyone around you may be changing Jesus remains the same. He is the same God that woke you up all the days of your life, and He remains the same. He is the same God that has made ways for you all your life, and He will never change. He is the same God that has healed, delivered, and made a way for you and He will never change.
You can go to Him and tell Him all about your struggles and He is right there for you. You can be assured that Jesus will always be the Lord of your life and will never stop loving and caring for you. I am grateful that I know that Jesus is always the same and has never and will never change, and although everything around me may be changing my hope is secure because Jesus is the same.
Since I know that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord thank you for always being the same. In Jesus Name Amen.
