We live in a constantly changing world. Just look around and it’s quick to see. There are changes in the seasons, in the climate, in the earth, in the economy, in politics, in governments, in our jobs, in relationships, in people, etc. Change is just part of life. It’s been said that no one likes change unless it is their idea. Some changes are good and some are not so good. Regardless change is evitable.
How people respond to change varies, however, how we respond is important. We can either embrace change or resist change. As we go through the change process we can be strong, brave, proactive or we can be fearful, resistant, or withdraw. When confronted with change we should seek to have a proper response it. In some cases, change should be resisted when it’s results are harmful or destructive. At other times change should be welcomed and embraced when it leads to improvement, growth, and our greater good.
Though change is an inevitable part of life for us, it’s great to know that our Lord God never changes. God, The Creator of the heavens, earth, the seas and all that is in them, does not change. God has declared, “I the Lord change not” (Malachi 3:6). One of God’s eternal attributes is what can be described in theological terms as God’s immutability, the fact that God does not change. None of God’s attributes will ever change, they eternally remain the same. What great assurance this gives us in knowing that whatever storms and trials may occur in lives God is unwavering and is a solid rock on which to stand. Because God never changes His love is everlasting, His forgiveness is certain, His faithfulness never ends, and all His truth endures through all generations. God has promised that even though heaven and earth will pass away, His word abides forever.
If you have not already done so choose this day to place your trust in God. He is “The Anchor” that holds in spite of the storm. And as you move forward in life you can with confidence embrace the fact that Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
