No Change!

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 (NRSV)
 
Recently the main theme of a major political candidate was change. He consistently used it in his speeches, political signs, and advertisements.
 
Whether political, social or cultural, we often believe change is beneficial. But is it? Often it is, but what if change never occurred – ever? Impossible? For us it is but not for God. In fact His changelessness is an important part of His character. And because God cannot change, neither does His love and care for us change. And like Paul wrote, that’s what assures our never being separated from His love for us.
 
When our modern world seems always to be shifting in so many ways, the fact that God does not and cannot change is encouraging. Though we may not be consistent in every way, we know He is and that provides us with perfect stability.
 
Lord, help me to see that your changelessness guarantees your care and provision. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
