Facing the Wind and Flood of Change
I’m not saying that I’m going to find it easy. Maybe it will be an adventure. Then again, maybe it won’t. Only God knows what is to come. So how am I going to face it? I can’t stop the changing world around me but I can sink my anchor into the one rock that will never move, never change, or give way—God! Let the winds of change come, the tides roll in and wash away what is. Even as the waters rush over me and the wind picks me up and throws me around, my God will never lose his hold on me. He will set my feet on solid ground and walk with me to discover the unexplored terrain of the future.
Scripture tells us that God is immutable. He is who he is and he is unchanging. His holiness, righteousness, omnipotence, omnipresence, omniscience, his love and grace will endure forever. And whatever the future holds, I am precious to the one who hold it in his hands. He will not let me be blown away nor will he let me drown. He has a hold of my hand and my heart and he will never let go. Does God change? No! Do I believe it? I’m about to have the opportunity to prove to myself that I do.
“I the Lord do not change. So you, the descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed." Malachi 3:6
Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. Psalm 62:2
