The Only Thing Constant… – A Candid Moment
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).Hebrews 13:8
Greek philosopher Heraclitus first said, “The only thing constant is change.”
But Heraclitus lived 500 years before Jesus.
Sometimes life changes so fast, I feel like I don’t know where or even when I am anymore.
Uncertainty is hard because without knowledge, we have no control. We feel helpless, anxious, and fearful.
It’s true that change is constant, but it’s not the only constant we know for certain.As we go through life, we can know without a shadow of a doubt that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and He is with us. Click To Tweet
So what does this verse mean to you and me as we struggle to keep marching through life’s tornadoes?
It means that no matter what the question or the conflict, Jesus is the answer.
No matter how much it seems like there’s no way out, Jesus is the Waymaker.
When your foundation is shaken, He is still your Rock.
Even as leaders fail, the Son of God is still the King of Kings.
If you dread the dawn, know that Immanuel is with you and goes before you.
When you feel alone, remember El Roi is the God who sees you.
As darkness overcomes you, raise your eyes and your voices towards the Light.
Are you lost? Let the Shepherd lead the way.
And when you’re anxious, leave your cares at the Cross of the Prince of Peace.
Benjamin Franklin once said, “Nothing in this world can be said to be certain -except death and taxes.” But he too was wrong.
I can give you certainty, but only if you surrender control over your life and your tomorrows to the One with the answers.
It’s in the Bible. It’s on the Cross. It’s in your next prayer.
The Good Book is not a crystal ball. Prayer is not a magic spell. Change, death, and taxes all still await you after you unfold your hands and put the Book back on the shelf.
But if you lay down your will to obey His word, you’ll have Jesus’ peace, wisdom, and strength to guide you.Check out today's Candid Moment with @ValerieRiese – It's an audio devotion for when you just need a little Jesus. Click To Tweet
