“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 NIV)
Many changes have taken place over the last year. Our schedules, work, school, family, andc hurch life have all been disrupted. We’ve had to adjust to what many would call the “new-normal” regarding our daily routines. If you’re like me, you know that embracing fast and unpredictable change is not easy. In fact, sometimes it can throw us into a season of despair because of our longing for what was once a stable environment. But when we look backwards in time, we understand that change is inevitable in this fallen world. Every generation is hit by a seasonal wave of unpredictability. So how do we endure this wave of change? We must look to the One who doesn’t change.
As believers in Christ, we can take comfort in the truth that Jesus never changes. There is no surprise about His character. There is no uncertainty as to whether or not He will be the same tomorrow as He is today. There is no need to fear the stability of His promises. Jesus never changes. Friends, this means that we can trust Him with our lives. Whatever might come our way, we can trust in His sovereign rule, despite the shifting sands of this world.
