Big Idea: We can trust God because he never changes.
Hebrews 13.8 (CSB): Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Devotional: In Spider-Man: Far From Home, the last battle scene is definitely high intensity. You spend what seems like forever worried about how Spidey and his friends are going to fare. Then, when it seems like things are about to end horribly, there is a moment of comic-relief with Nick Fury.
Comic-relief is a tool used by writers and authors to break the tension and give their audience a moment of reprieve. I find it amazing how quickly things can change. In one moment, we can be on the edge of our seats, waiting anxiously to see how our favorite character is going to do. Then, in the next, we are sitting back in our chairs laughing because of a well-timed joke. Not only do our emotions change, but so do our situations and circumstances. We may be in a season that we never saw coming and facing obstacles that seem insurmountable. But, we can remain constant in hope.
Why are we able to remain constant in hope when our situations, circumstances, and emotions change so frequently? Well, the author of Hebrews wrote that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Jesus never changes! He is not phased by anything we encounter. I remember reading that “there are no problems in Heaven. Only plans.”
Dear friend, our God never changes. He is the same from eternity-past to eternity-future. We remain confident in ever changing times because our God is never-changing.
-Have you ever thought of God as never-changing? Why or why not?
-How does the never-changing nature of God impact your life on a daily basis?
-Pray and thank God that he never changes and always remains constant. Ask him to help you look to him when you are in turbulent times, as well as peaceful times.
Has it ever occurred to you that nothing occurs to God?
