A conversation with a friend went something like this:
(Friend) “Man, this is really getting hard.”
(Me) “God only allows this in your journey because He really loves you.”
(Friend) “You think maybe He could love me a little less for a minute?”
He knew He could never love him any less, but his sentiment was understandable with the trial he was going through. One of the most comforting and powerful truths about God is that He never changes. The same yesterday, today, and forever, the writer of Hebrews tells us about God Incarnate. We are not always consistent, and that makes us “messy mortals.” We do not always appreciate the outcome of our decisions when they run up against the immutable realities of who God is and how He works. The best thing for us to do is to align with His consistent character and enjoy the protection, joy, and peace we will experience. His consistent character is a great gift. Today don’t fight – align.
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 NASB
