Showing God in action in and through His people.
A story is told of a shipwrecked sailor who clung to a rock in great danger until the tide went down. Later a friend asked him, "Didn't you shake with fear when you were hanging on the rock?"
He simply replied, "Yes, but the rock didn't."
Life and its uncertainties may shake us, but God – who is the Rock of Ages – does not move. If we cling to Him, His strength sustains us.
Since God never changes, His character is constant. Unlike us, He does not compromise or change His values. He cannot be manipulated or persuaded to go against His Word. He does not have a Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde personality where He will comfort us one moment and snap at us the next.
God's constancy also gives us eternal significance. God's plan existed at the beginning of creation and remains the same today. It unfolds in stages, which may give us the impression of change, but His original design has always been consistent. From the day God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, God's hand has been leading and guiding His people. And we are part of His plan!
Paul wrote to the believers in Ephesus, "For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things He planned for us long ago" (Ephesians 2:10). As God's people, we are His loved ones whom He has planned from the beginning to bless and to live with forever!
Your View of God Really Matters ...
Use your Bible concordance to find a promise that clearly applies to you today. Claim it and then chose to live your life today as though you really do believe that God's faithfulness toward you really will never change. Remember, faith is not believing that God can do something, but believing that He will do what He has promised. He never changes.
