Change is one thing we can be sure of in this life. Our relationships change as we move to new places. Even the cells in our bodies are always in the process of change. When cells wear out, most are replaced by new ones. This is especially noticeable with our skin—we shed & regrow outer skin cells about every 27 days.
Yes, change is the one certainty in our world. Henry Lyte's melancholy line in his hymn "Abide With Me" is true: "Change and decay in all around I see." But the hymn immediately adds, "O Thou who changest not, abide with me!"
By faith in Jesus Christ, we can have a relationship with the unchanging God, who says of Himself in Malachi 3:6, "I am the Lord, I do not change." Hebrews 13:8 adds this reassuring testimony: "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever."
He is our firm foundation, who can give us confidence & security in this changing world. To face life's changes, look to the unchanging God. (preceptaustin.org)
It seems, God once said to the Bible Teacher, Bob Mumford, “You and I are incompatible and I do not change.”
Jer 26:13 (GNB): “You must change the way you are living and the things you are doing, and must obey the LORD your God. If you do, he will change his mind about the destruction that he said he would bring on you.”
In the New Year 2015, I hope, wish & pray that you may change your focus, commitments & actions for a more spiritually fruitful year ahead. Have a blessed New Year.
