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 in a world of ever darker thoughts and evil, we are exposed to the destruction of any moral fiber. It slowly eats away at us until we become 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.
Change can be for our good as well. We defy the laws of science through research. We discover new ways of dealing with old problems. We find solutions and can even step ahead of where man has not gone before. These changes can make us better or cause even greater difficulties. The way we deal with this constant state of metamorphous is by staying grounded in something that never changes – the one thing that remains consistent always.
The actual words of God, inspired into the pens of average men, 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. Though our world is constantly changing, your love and your laws never do. Change the hearts of all of us to return to you once more. Amen!
