“The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the Word of our God stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:8)
One of the most important things we can do is to be totally dependent on God, because His Word is eternal and unfailing. In a world that is constantly trying to convince us to put our trust in that which changes and fades away, what might it mean to trust in God’s word, which never fades? The one thing that will remain constant and forever true is God’s love for us; His love won’t fade; it won’t fail us. It’s always there, especially when we need it the most! When everything in our world seems to be changing, it’s a comfort to know that we have a never changing God.
When all else fails, God’s light shines!
Have you ever counted on something to last forever? Storms pass… Leaves wilt… Problems come and go… Things happen… People change…but if we set the Lord always before us we will not be shaken! He “makes us as surefooted as a dear, enabling us to stand on mountain heights” (Psalm 18:33). God does not leave us alone when we feel that everything around us is unstable and uncertain; He stands beside us and strengthens us. No matter what we are going through, we can turn to Him for strength and encouragement. In a world that is forever changing, we can always trust our unchanging Lord.
“For I am the Lord, I do not change.” (Malachi 3:6)
People, places, and our circumstances are precarious and unpredictable and we can’t rely on our own will to remain stable, but one thing that sets God apart from us is that God is the same today as He was so many years ago. Even in the midst of our ever-changing world we serve a never-changing God. His love never changes… His faithfulness never changes… His mercy never changes… His ability to provide and meet our needs doesn’t waver. No matter what changes around you, God in all His glory and majesty will never diminish. His purposes are reliable and His Words are sure. God’s love stays the same through the ages; it’s a love that never fails.
"Nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God” (Romans 8:39)
