My God is Constant

The grass grows green again and spring poises.

My God is constant.

Everywhere I gaze, I discover a new jewel. Daffodils bob their sunny heads. A fat bunny twitches his nose as it watches the wind blow. The tree that only yesterday was dull and gray is suddenly dressed in the glory of spring. Pinks, reds, whites, yellows – they are colors of rebirth and hope.

My God is constant.

I hear of disease, fear, and death. I read heart breaking stories – tornadoes, earthquakes, despicable dictatorships, poverty. I see people wounded and suffering – by others, by cancer, by death, by divorce, by loss. The world hurts. It is broken and difficult.

My God is constant.

Seasons keep changing – of life, of nature, of relationship. Friendships ebb and flow, my children blossom and learn by leaps and bounds. And even I change, sometimes due to circumstance, sometimes due to my sin and brokenness, sometimes because I at last submitted to God’s shaping. But…

My God is constant.

He is my rock.

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. ~ Psalm 18:2

He is my anchor.

We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. ~ Hebrews 6:19-20

He is firm footing

You gave a wide place for my steps under me, and my feet did not slip. ~ Psalm 18:36

Though everything around me be in turmoil or chaos, hurt or distraction, beauty or passing flower, my God is constant. He does not need to change. He is already good. He is already perfect.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrew 13:8

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. ~ James 1:17

My God is constant. And He is worthy of my trust and my praise.
