God Remains the Same – Hope Stream Radio
On the show Growing Through God’s Word at Hope Stream Radio today, I look at how God remains the same. I change but He does not.
You can listen to my podcast by clicking on Hope Stream Radio – Growing Through God’s Word – Janis Cox.
Or you can read my show notes below:
We can see in our scripture today which is Hebrews 1:10-12 that we will change but God remains the same.
God Remains the Same
Reading from Hebrews 1:10-12
“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth,
and the heavens are the work of your hands.
They will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like a garment.
You will roll them up like a robe;
like a garment they will be changed.
But you remain the same,
and your years will never end.”
This is the scripture at Word of God Speak this week. I have said it over and over as I try to memorize it.
Hebrews 1:3 says:
The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
Jesus sustains it all. Everything.
I think about the intricate creatures God has made – like hummingbirds. They are totally amazing. They flap their wings about 80 times a second – yes 80 times per SECOND.
They can fly in all directions including upside down. They only use their feet for perching not to hop or walk.
What an awesome God we serve to have created such a fascinating creature.
I’ve had a hummingbird stop right in front of my face for a few seconds – seeming to stare right at me – then whoosh – it’s gone.
According to our Scripture today all will be changed. God will roll everything up like a robe, then change it all.
I do hope the hummingbird remains.
I love the permanence of that statement. That’s how I feel about God’s Word. It is truth. We can grab hold of this truth. It will not change like fads of this world.
Not like shag carpet, or typewriters or VHS tapes.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever – Hebrews 13:8
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17
May I pray for you and me?
Lord, we are grateful that You do not change – ever. In our changing lives holding on to Your unchangeable qualities puts us at peace. Your permanence gives us assurance Your Word promises life everlasting for those who acknowledge You. Thank You Jesus. In Your name. Amen.
Until next time, as you look about you see all the things than can and will change over time and remember that God remains the same and the Word of our God endures forever – Isaiah 40:8.
