Change is constitutive in life. We prepare, adjust and cope with change, or risk being left behind. However, even though change is real and inevitable, we do not like the concept or reality of change. There is a certain comfort that comes from stability.
Faith in Jesus is our ‘anchor in the chaotic sea of change’. Our assurance is two-fold: He is the “same yesterday and today” (Heb. 13:8), and His words will not pass away (Lk. 21:33). The Lord’s presence and His words will guide us safely through all change.
Lord Jesus, we celebrate Your faithful presence and consume Your words. May our trust in Your saving power help us to successfully navigate the many changes in life. Amen.
