Forgetting Who God Is – Unchanging

Greetings Dear Reader,

We are mercurial in our opinions, moods, and loyalties.  We do not believe we are but it is true none-the-less.  We change our minds about things we have committed to do.  We have mood swings and mood tsunamis.  We put our wants above the things to which we have pledged our lives and loyalties.

God does not change.  He is the constant in the chaos.  He is our fulcrum and lever in the void.  His love for us is unchanging.  His desire to return things to good is unwavering.  His passion to redeem all that he created is immeasurable.  He gives us an inkling to that measure in his Son, Jesus. 

What we see in Christ is the God who was willing to travel to us when we could not travel to him.  We see the unwavering love and commitment of one who wishes for us to have all that we are created to have.

When we waiver on the things that show God’s love for us we represent a wavering God.  Since he asks us to follow in faith this cannot be the way he is represented.  He does not change and his compassion does not fail.  We see new aspects of his love and care daily but we ignore them.

I must see him in every moment.  I must see his consistency and compassion in every small thing.  I must acknowledge that God is unchanging in all my choices of faith and then he will direct my path.  The journey involves a guide who is constant, present, and communicating.  He is mine and I am his.  In every age it has been thus and so shall it ever be.

El Shaddai – Michael Card

El Shaddai, el Shaddai,
El-elyon na adonia,
Age to age you're still the same,
By the power of the name.
El Shaddai, el Shaddai,
Erkamka na adonai,
We will praise and lift you high,
El Shaddai.

Through your love and through the ram,
You saved the son of Abraham;
Through the power of your hand,
Turned the sea into dry land.
To the outcast on her knees,
You were the God who really sees,
And by your might,
You set your children free.

El Shaddai, el Shaddai,
El-elyon na adonia,
Age to age you're still the same,
By the power of the name.
El Shaddai, el Shaddai,
Erkamka na adonai,
We will praise and lift you high,
El Shaddai.

Through the years you've made it clear,
That the time of Christ was near,
Though the people couldn't see
What messiah ought to be.
Though your word contained the plan,
They just could not understand
Your most awesome work was done
Through the frailty of your son.

El Shaddai, el Shaddai,
El-elyon na adonai,
Age to age you're still the same,
By the power of the name.
El Shaddai, el Shaddai,
Erkamka na adonai,
I will praise yo 'till I die,
El Shaddai.

El Shaddai, el Shaddai,
El-elyon na adonai,
Age to age you're still the same,
By the power of the name.
El Shaddai, el Shaddai,
Erkamka na adonai,
I will praise you 'till I die.
El Shaddai.

Wishing you joy in the journey,

Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
