Tuesday’s Faith Thought…
“For I, the LORD, do not change …” Malachi 3:6a (NASB)
Change is hard. Sometimes it is painful. But whether we like it or not, the living of this life involves change.
Our bodies change.
Life is change. The longer you live, the more you know that the only thing constant in this life is change. Whether our changes seem hard or make us happy, change teaches us that life is fragile, uncertain and temporary. Nothing lasts forever.
Except…something that does last forever…is God. “For I, the LORD, do not change …” (Malachi 3:6a).
God doesn’t change. He has always been and will always be never changing. We serve a God who stays the same. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Whether we move homes, change jobs, experience relational, physical or emotional changes, God is a constant and dependable anchor.
During seasons of change, there are many things we can’t control, but we can depend on God to be a refuge in times of trouble, provide comfort to our aching heart and give guidance through his Word so we can effectively navigate life’s changes. We can find peace in the arms of a God who is always totally in control of the circumstances of our life. We can trust Him to carry us through whatever changes we face today.
If God has allowed a change in your life, let that change motivate you to draw closer to him. Let him be your refuge, your comfort and your strength.
Dear Jesus, You don’t change, but something in my life has. The change has not been easy and I need you to help me walk through the new experiences in my life. Please reassure and comfort me based on your loving plans. I trust you to be with me during this and every season. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
