“One Thing You Can Count On!”
By Zach Wood
Hebrews 13:8 NIV
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
As I drive to and from work each day, one thing I take notice of is the gas prices. I like to keep an eye on them often. As we drive around from town to town and going various places, I often do the same. I like to keep an eye on where gas may be the cheapest and it’s just interesting to see the fluctuation of prices.
As I was driving home today from work, I chuckled and thought to myself, “Wow, these gas prices just fluctuate constantly!” And they do, often. I thought about how so many things around us each day change from one moment to the next. It seems we cannot find anything these days that stays the same. Things are constantly changing and it’s very hard to keep up with.
I don’t mind sometimes when things change, but I do like consistency in many things. It’s nice to know when some things will remain the same and kind of creates a comfort zone, so to speak. As I continued thinking through these thoughts, I thought about how crazy things are in the world with a continuous cycle of change. It really does seem things are constantly changing and it just doesn’t provide a feeling of security. Technology is one of the biggest things that change. What’s new one day is old and obsolete in no time! Crazy!
I am so very thankful to know that God never changes. No matter what is going on each day of my life, I can count on the fact that God’s love will always remain within me. He will never love me less and I don’t have to do anything to make Him love me more. His faithfulness is always present. I never have to be concerned that He will abandon me. He is always there. When I’m having a bad day at work or at home, He’s always there to comfort me.
There is such a comforting feeling to knowing that God remains the same no matter what is going on around me. I don’t have to worry about His love and faithfulness fading away. With all the changes that happen around me daily, it’s a peaceful feeling knowing that I can rest in His presence.
I hope you can be comforted today knowing that God loves you no matter what. With all that changes around you, His love won’t abandon you and He will remain faithful in the coming days. Rest assured you can count on God’s love to pour out on you every day of your life.
One thing you and I can always count on is the great love and faithfulness of God!
