Someone That Will Never Change

 

August 19

 

Read Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and tomorrow.

 

Reflect

How do you feel about change? Do you embrace it or long for things to stay the same?

 

I do not like change. I like stability. I want to make plans and have them work out. I thrive in a predictable routine.

 

So it might be interesting to know that in the past 7 years, I have moved 4 times due to job changes. Just when I’ve started to feel settled, we have to start packing up again. Everything changes and we have to start all over.  Add a puppy and then 3 babies born during these 7 years and you can imagine how overwhelmed I was at every routine change and “new normal”. Even good changes can be stressful.

 

Surprisingly, during this last move, I did not feel as anxious about another fresh start. Why? Because God had proven Himself faithful in our past and I knew He’d be faithful in our future. I knew that He’d provide a new community of friends and place people in our lives that would be an encouragement to us. I knew that I’d figure out how to navigate all of the new details of everyday life. But mostly, I had learned that the most important thing did not change no matter where I went. Jesus’s presence. He has always been there for me through every major change in my life, good or bad. And I can count on that staying the same in future.

 

Everything in this life is temporary and subject to change. Isaiah 40:8 reminds us that nothing on earth is reliable or permanent, but God’s promises will always stand. “The grass withers and flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”

 

Are you looking for sure footing? You can put your trust in someone who won’t change His mind or His ways. He never changes and He never fails us. Jesus will be faithful to every promise He made in His Word. You can count on Him.

 

Pray

Jesus, thank You for being a firm foundation. I do not have to worry that You will change Your mind or leave me. Even though everything else is uncertain, I know that I can count on You. Amen.

Wow. That sounds really hard. Finding a church home is a challenge, especially when you feel pushed away. Regarding your question, there is good in change. The good can be seen a couple of ways. First, it keeps us dependent upon God. God is our Father and the provider of all of our needs. So change keeps us dependent upon Him. This is especially good, because God does not change! Second, we know that change can create trials. Trials are there to mature us and to prepare us to minister to others. So trials are hard. Change is challenging, but it has many benefits for us. Third, this isn't so much a reason for the good, but rather the reality inside of change. Change in inevitable. It happens constantly. It's how we handle the change that makes the difference. How we respond to our change determines the outcome. It's my prayer that you lean into God and His faithfulness in your trial and change. He loves you and is there for you.
Amen 🖤
Lord Jesus, thank You for Your never-changing character in an ever-changing world. You are my Rock. Thank You for growing my faith.
Dear Jesus, you are my firm foundation. Thank you for loving and caring for me. As long as I have You, I do not have to worry that You will leave or for sake me. "Your Word is truth." That's why I love You so, so much!
Mighty God please remind me that you will never change.
My wife and I have gone through many changes since 2007 non of them would I say have been worth while. In that time we lost jobs had to remake ourselves and those changes didn't fit in with anything that we had previously done. In that time a church that we had served on Saturday night all of a sudden decided to shut down the Saturday night service kicked out 600 plus worshippers and told us if we wanted to continue services with them we'd have to come on Sunday at the 9 AM or 11 AM services? This would have been fine for many but for us it's a 50 mile trip one way so we followed some of the other people we wroshipped with to another Bible believing Church and things have not gone well there either. We've prayed about churches and where to whorship have like minded frinds in Christ but non have come along. Now there are several other issues but it should suffice to say we are wore out and feel like God through Christ has left us in a situation that doesn't seem to get better only worse. Sorry for being rather bewildered but if God is for us where is the good part of change? Maybe someone can answer that for me. Thank you in Christ
My faith is in Jesus Christ which is a firm foundation and a solid rock we can stand on.
My health which is life altering , can be debilitating and is my new journey is always changing , however I am thankful that God’s Word never changes.
I enjoy changes as far as rearranging rooms and items. Do to my age it takes longer to get things done. I'm thankful that God's Word never changes.
Thank You Jesus, You and You alone are the constant in my life that I can always depend upon. You are there when I dont think You are. Protecting, blessing, providing, and never forsaking us. Thank You, I pray this prayer in Jesus Christ name Amen
WITH THE CHANGE, THAT IS TAKEN PLACE AROUND THE WORLD TODAY, CAN CAUSE YOU TO HAVE FEAR. THE WAY I LOOK AT IT, IS THAT IT’S A GOOD THING FOR ME, BECAUSE I FIND MYSELF GETTING CLOSER TO THE LORD. I WAKE UP IN THE MORNING WITH THE LORD ON MY MIND, AND ALL THROUGH OUT THE DAY,SOMETHING OR SOMEONE REMINDS ME JUST HOW GREAT AND AWESOME GOD CAN BE. I TRY TO STAY FOCUS ON THE LORD, SO THAT I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THE FEARS OF THIS WORLD. CHANGE CAN BE GREAT OR UNCOMFORTABLE, IT ALL DEPENDS ON YOU AND THE RELATIONSHIP THAT YOU HAVE WITH THE LORD.
Love the Faithfulness of God. Never wavering.
The Faithfulness of God 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

We need a rock where we know will hold us up. Thank you Jesus for being that rock! Having you as my savior, Lord and God gives me confidence to trust you and declare your name throughout your world. Use me for your glory today. Amen
Thank you Jesus for always being around us all.
Thank you Jesus for always being there for me.
Yes it is true , Jesus Christ is everything to me in all times , that is my experience. Thanks for this useful devotion to remember His love.
That verse certainly gives us a sure foundation to stand on as we live in an ever changing world. Thank God for His precious promises.
Yes it is comforting and settling to know God is always there, never changes.
Change is something that is necessary in life. We change when we grow up. We change when we contact new people. However what we must understand is that we must know and trust God to be with us in this changing world. While the society changes, God never does.
