The snow is coming down in strong flurries here today, a stark contrast from yesterday when temperatures were in the 60’s ! Much of the country is experiencing the same radical shift in the weather but isn’t it comforting to know that God is immutable or unchanging as to His nature? The writer of Hebrews (whoever he was !) wrote this: “Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, and today, and forever” (13:8) !!! This is exciting when you contemplate it especially with the shifting ways of this old world. Malachi spoke of God, “For I am the Lord, I change not.” !! (3:6).
I just read about a man who spoke up for our second amendment right to bear arms and he raised some fascinating points. He said for years America has had a great gun culture (boy scouts could earn marksmanship badges, hardware stores would sell you a gun, etc.) and yet there wasn’t the problem with mass shootings then as now. The cities with the strictest gun control laws (Washington, D.C. & Chicago) have the greatest rates of crime ! He concluded, rightly, that we don’t need more laws we need better morals ! The issue is not the gun itself but the people’s hearts holding them !! We have changed as a society for the worse for we have abandonded the Unchanging One !!!!!
So what, my friend, can you do to help our nation come to the Immutable God? You can show them a consistent testimony for Christ (pray for God to help you there), you can stay focused on Him when the winds of change blow in your life (looking to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith, Heb.12:2), you can do what is right and follow the principles of His Word no matter what for it is a stable, sure foundation (the testimony of the Lord is sure, Ps.19:7). Be a steady rock by resting in Him today, you can count on Him !!!
