ONCE MORE.....CHANGE

Change is inevitable. It can be frightening, but, if my life is safely hidden in God, I cannot fear change. He never changes, and remains the same “yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is my constant foundation in this vacillating world. I will trust Him when what happens seems frightening. I will learn His lesson, and apply it to my life. It makes the next change, whether good or bad, easier to handle, because I have learned spiritual balance and poise in a world that offers no solid foundation.
His power to handle change is available at all times. I will claim it, and use it constantly in life’s changing moments. His power, His strength, His faithfulness, His consistency, His balance-it is all mine to exercise everyday. I can never ask too much of God. His provision is unending. He is unending. Living in Jesus Christ is abundance beyond any measure.
See, I am doing a new thing!” the Lord proclaims. “Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise” (Isaiah 43:19-21).
 
Whatever change lies ahead, He has made a way to provide exactly what is needed for my journey. I am His child, and He will not forsake or leave me. I will praise Him and accept His joy. It is His gift to me.

Dear Lord,
Today I come to you faced with changed. It appeared suddenly with no warning. You are my only constant. Everything else in my life will change. Loved ones will come and go. Feelings will come and go. But you are my constant anchor in this rocky life, and I will always be safe and secure in you. Where you are, Lord, there is freedom from bondage to fear or pain or hurt or disillusionment. Where you are is love and joy.  Help me to count all my days, and live wisely and sacrificially. The days and moments of this life are what I give you. I want it to be more than enough in your eyes. I stand with my eyes only on you, and my heart secure in your hands, knowing I am being molded into what you wish. And in this I find your perfect peace.
Amen.
