From time to time, I’ll hear older relatives reminisce about the good ol’ days when soda pop and gas were cheap, when the Big Mac was actually big, and when rotary phones were the phones to use. Over time, our world has continued to evolve. Prices inflate, technology advances, fads change. Change. There is no way around it.
God, though, doesn’t change. He’s the same God of my great-great grandmother and will be the same God of my great-great grandchildren. God isn’t like the faces of the moon or the changing levels of the sea. He isn’t that politician that promises to be your voice then forgets about you. He isn’t that spouse that vowed ‘til death do you part and then left when times got rough.
We serve a God that doesn’t mind doing miracles in our lives like He did for the children of Israel. We’re protected by the same God that protected David from his enemies and protected Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego from King Nebuchadnezzar. Our God’s providence didn’t end with Abraham and Isaac or Elisha and the widow woman. His restoring powers didn’t end with Job and Joseph.
We serve a God whose “mercy and lovingkindness are everlasting, His faithfulness endures to all generations” (Psalm 100:5 AMP). In a society where nothing is ever really certain and can never be guaranteed, why wouldn’t you want to serve our God?
