Someone once said, “Change is inevitable – except from a vending machine.” Change can be good; it can drive us crazy; it can be difficult, but it will happen to everyone. When something disrupts our comfort zone it can really shake us up.
The world is in a constant state of flux. Sometimes it’s difficult to understand how changes in morals and ideas occur, but it just shows us how sneaky the devil is. He gets into our moral fiber and slowly eats away at it until it becomes totally unrecognizable.
Our physical world changes because we, as stewards of our environment have failed to take care of it as God intended. Laws change – new technology becomes obsolete before we get it out of the box – minds change and are easily bent – our thoughts are on overdrive and change daily. Change has been a part of our vocabulary since mankind fell from God and tried to manage things on their own.
We all have access to the one thing that never changes – the actual words of God which have been preserved for us in the Bible. If you want consistency, that’s where to go. God never changes, therefore His words always reman the same.
Thank you, Lord, for giving us your Holy Word; for inspiring men with those words and for keeping it alive even today. Even though our world is constantly changing, your love and your laws never do. Change the hearts of men to return to you once more. Amen!
