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 the shadow of a doubt it is this: God’s promises and His covenant 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, 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. 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. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Hebrews 6:18-19 that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.
