YOU HAVE MY WORD
As he slipped the engagement ring on her finger, he said, “I want you to know that I will love you forever and then some. But if things don’t work out, I expect you to give me back my ring. Is that perfectly clear?”
People change. Situations change. Times change. But God will not change.
If there is anything that we can know beyond a shadow of a doubt, it is this: God’s promises and His faithfulness will never change. We have His Word and His Word is truth.
Because God is truth we can believe and be secure in all of His promises. His truth is like the anchor of a ship. Winds may blow, waves may crash, and the ship may move from the left to the right – even in a circle, but it is secure and safe as long as the anchor holds.
In God’s eternal truth we find hope. When we feel as though we are being swept along by circumstances that are beyond our control and have nothing secure to grasp or hold on to, we need to reach for Him. He will lift us up and plant our feet securely on the firm foundation that is His never-changing Word.
Though we may not understand what is going on in our world, we know Who is in control of our world. We must always hope, knowing His best is coming soon.
Prayer: Give us, Father, a hope that will not fade, a trust that will not waiver, and hope that holds firm. Help us to realize that all we need can be found in You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Hebrews 6:18-19
