People of God, there’s one thing we mustn’t ever forget in the storms of life; the Lord our God is an unchanging God. The writer of Hebrews declares in chapter 13 verse 8 that, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” That’s right….people change, seasons change, things change, but the Lord our God remains the same!
HELLO…..who said, “Hindsight is 2020?” When I appraise my life and all the suffering, test, trials, brokenness, fiery furnaces, valley experiences, hard press areas in life that I have experienced and continue to experience, I have found one thing to be consistent and that one thing is God’s Word can always be trusted. God’s word is unequivocally true and unfailing; regardless of what I may feel, think or fear.
Truth is, pain and suffering has shown and proven to me that God is incontestably immutable! Unfortunately, when I was going through, I could not see this in the midst of the battle or storm because I allowed myself to see doubt and fear in them, but on the other side of my sufferings called “THROUGH” I now can look back and see where God strengthened my faith in those test because the purpose was not intended for my destruction, rather it was intended to prepare me for the “WHAT NEXT” that is guaranteed to come with God.
The troubles of our life is where God does His best work in and through us.
Thankfully, in times of need our God is always there for us, He is always dependable and always concerned about us and what we go through. No, He will NEVER fail us nor ‘leave or forsake us’ (Hebrews 13:5). We may not know the when or the how, but we do know the ‘WHAT NEXT’; God will do it again it!!
Lastly, Hebrews 13:6 also reminds us that we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid…..” At the end of the day and dawn of a new morning, Jesus is our stainless steel anchor that holds, keeps, and restores us over and over again; even in life’s fiercest battles and most difficult circumstances!
