Our God Who Stays the Same

In an ever-changing world, we all want something to hold on to, don’t we? When we go through a big transition in our life, it always helps to cling to something that doesn’t change, though everything else around us may be changing. Maybe you’re starting a new school, and you’re not sure what that will be like. Perhaps your best friend is moving away, and you have to branch out to make new friends. Or maybe your parents are getting divorced, and you can hardly imagine how that change is going to affect your family. Sometimes transitions in life can feel like your world is falling apart, and things that once felt like sturdy rock begin to turn to sand. In these moments when change feels overwhelming, we can remind each other of solid truths we can stand on that will never be shaken. Read these verses: • “God, who is enthroned from of old, who does not change” (Psalm 55:19a). • “But you remain the same, and your years will never end” (Psalm 102:27). • “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). • “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows” (James 1:17). Amazing! Our God is the One who never changes. While the world is still broken by sin and death, change is inevitable. We can’t control it, we can’t stop it, it just happens. But praise God that He never changes. Because in times when everything is changing around us, He is our anchor, the One we can cling to, because He remains the same. • Emily Rondello • Think of a transition in your life, either one you’ve already gone through or one you’re in the midst of now.
