Today’s Text: Psalms 90-92
Key Text: Psalm 90:1-2
“Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.”
You’ve heard it before – the only constant in life is change.”
I suppose that’s mostly true.
Change is how we learn, grow, and mature.
Change is how we find new, creative ways to live out all the possibilities life has for us.
Change is how we learn what works, and doesn’t work, about how we get our most basic needs met.
But there is One who doesn’t change – God.
Oh, I know there are some who argue that God changes just like God’s creation – that part of God’s very nature is a sort of divine evolution – that we are all “works in progress” – even God.
I don’t think that squares with scripture though.
I think the Psalmist has it right.
“Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations….from everlasting to everlasting you are God.”
I believe God’s basic nature is unchanging – always holy, always righteous, always just, and always merciful.
Everything about my life may be in constant change and certainly all my relationships are ever changing, and hopefully growing. That is certainly true of my relationship with God as well.
But God isn’t the one changing – I am.
I believe we can count on God to be unchanging – and utterly dependable. Ours is not a fickle deity.
So, no matter what else in your life might seem in flux – positively or negatively – I invite you to hold strong to the One who is the same yesterday, today, tomorrow, and evermore. Hold onto God, from everlasting to everlasting.
