~James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Everyone changes in life. We are not the same person we were 20 years ago. Those closest to us change throughout the years. Those we were able to count on a year ago are not always there today.
However, God never changes. He will never let you down. What He said He would do 20 years ago, He will do today. When His Word gives a promise, you can bank on it!
~Malachi 3:6a For I am the LORD, I change not;
God is always the same and will continue to be the same – He is not subject to change … EVER! That is why He is referred to as a rock in the Scriptures. A simple search in your Bible software or Concordance will show countless references to God being a rock.
It is comforting to know that our unchanging and unmovable God is in control. The Captain of our ship is ever waiting to take the helm and lead us. Look at your life with an honest heart. Is the path that you are on going in a direction that brings you peace? There is peace even in the midst of a storm with Christ at the helm. The storms of life are still there but He provides inner peace. We know that nothing will happen that He hasn’t already given the go ahead.
Take comfort, Christian. These are tumultuous times and the Word says that we are in for far worse storms in the years to come. But we have the God of comfort at the helm and He will direct our ship!
~Isaiah 40:1 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.
~2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
~2 Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
