Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. –Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV
If people are honest, no one likes change—but change is inevitable. Everything arounds us changes. In addition to people changing, jobs changing, and children growing, suffering a loss can totally change our lives. The only thing that doesn’t change is God’s love! No matter what trials we face, He does not change.
We can always rely on the Father. He is our firm foundation when struggles overwhelm us. He is our wind beneath our wings. He carries us through and calms the storms. The storms will come, but He never wavers.
During the storms, we have to focus on Him. We have to believe and trust in His Word. We have to take our eyes off our circumstances and look up—to Him. We have to press in and keep Him first in our hearts—trusting that He never takes His eyes off His children. He hears our prayers, and we are safe even when change occurs. He is our light in a dark world, and He is our hope. These truths will never change!
- Pray for strength as you go through the changes of life.
- God tells us in Hebrews 13:8 (NIV), “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
