Things change here on earth so quickly. Your parents get divorced and
suddenly you’re living in two homes. Your grandparent moves
into an assisted living community and no longer has the yard that they used
to have. Your sibling graduates from high school and joins the military.
You gain and lose people in your life as you grow
up. You have new opportunities and spend time in new places. You never
quite know what a day is going to bring or what changes you are going to
have to face.
Change can be hard. It can be scary. But it’s good to remember that even as
this world changes and we feel tossed around by all that’s happening around
us, God never changes.
In all times and circumstances, God is good. He loves us with an unending
love. He is always there for us, even when we feel alone. While the world
seems to move all around us, God remains constant. In Isaiah 54:10, the
prophet records God’s words: For the mountains may move and the hills
disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant
of blessing will never be broken,’ says the Lord, who has mercy on you.
The leader of a country might change, but God doesn’t. The place where you
lay down to sleep at night might change, but God doesn’t. Your parent might
get into a new relationship, change their job, or change their appearance,
but God stays the same. You can count on God to always be who He has
revealed Himself to be, no matter how this world changes. Emily Acker
Throughout our lives, we go through lots of changes, whether they be
related to school, home life, relationships, or the overall state of the
world. How can relying on God’s unchanging love make it easier for us to go
through all kinds of changes?
Is someone in your life going through a difficult change right now? How
could you share God’s love with them? Consider taking a moment to pray for
this person and see if any ideas come to mind.
