Unchanging God

Have you ever been on the brink of a major transition? New schools, new
jobs, new homes, new friends—these changes can be good, but they can also
be painful. People might ask you how you’re feeling, but it can be hard to
put those feelings into words. Transitions can be bitter and sweet, all at
the same time. My family has a move coming up. We’re not moving far, and
we’re moving back to the place I’ve always called home. But at the same
time, I’m leaving a place that’s become home. Friends and a community I’ve
come to love dearly. Change is hard. But as we prepare for this transition,
I find joy, hope, and comfort in this good news: Jesus is with us, and He
never changes. We can put our trust in Him. On the eve of a move like this,
I might’ve once felt like my whole life would be completely uprooted. But
as God has revealed His truth to me all throughout His Word, I’ve come to
know that He never changes, even when our lives and our world are
constantly in motion. He is consistent through all of life’s
inconsistencies. Psalm 102:27 says, “But you remain the same, and your
years will never end.” In Isaiah 40:8, we’re reminded that even as the
earth crumbles, God’s Word is everlasting: “The grass withers and the
flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.” And Hebrews 13:8
tells us, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” These
truths can change the way we live, because we don’t need to fear what
tomorrow will bring. We don’t need to worry about whether transitions will
be good or bad. God is with us, and He will never fail us. So, no matter
what transition looms on the horizon, we can trust that God is with us. And
we can find joy in His promise to be our constant. • Becca Wierwille • What
kinds of transitions have you gone through in your life? How have you seen
God’s faithfulness throughout these changes? • What transitions are coming
up in your future? • Consider taking a moment to thank God for His
faithfulness in the past, and then tell Him about some of your dreams
and/or worries for the future and ask for His help. Jesus Christ is the
same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8 (NIV)
