As the leaves change on the trees and the colors are revealed, I am reminded how often change comes into our lives. Sometimes changes come for the better, and sometimes changes come because of poor choices. Those decisions are ours. Sometimes changes come that have nothing at all to do with us but are brought on by our health, family members, accidents, or events we have no control over. But whatever the change and the circumstance, God can use it to build our lives. We can get bitter or better. That choice is ours! Change is hard—for everyone, but we must learn to get better because of the changes and grow more to be like Christ!
I am comforted by the fact that even with all the changes we see in and around us, our God NEVER changes. Hebrews 13:8 tells us “Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, and to day, and forever.” Immutability—one of the attributes of God—He NEVER changes. In a world that is changing constantly and with the changes that come into my life daily, I’m very thankful that my God NEVER changes!
