Bible Verse for the Day | Hebrews 13:8
"Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever."
Hello everyone! I sure hope that you are enjoying your day! I am happy about one thing this morning…and that is that we got some much-needed rain during the night! Praise God for that! You know…we can experience moments, when we feel as if our prayers will never be answered; but what I'm learning more and more; is that God is always victorious…but in His time. So, if we can keep these thoughts embedded deep within the heart; then we will always have a piece of hope to hold to, while facing uncertain times.
This morning, as the sun is peaking through the clouds…everything around me seems to be fresh and alive…and much different from yesterday. It's amazing, as to how a little rain can clear the air and make everything seem brand-new.
You know…during the difficult times that surround us, we can easily find ourselves caught up in the drought-stricken moments, where we feel as if God has forgotten us, while each day becomes the same as yesterday. It seems as though the sun that once shown so brightly…no longer brightens our day like it used to, while the path that once produced so much beauty, has now become gray and lifeless, as we ask ourselves…what is happening?
Let's face it…this world is taking a different turn…and we seem to be going right along with it. The things we now see, and experience can shock us and make life seem so much different…in a way that we never ever expected it to be. In fact, we can view moments that make us feel as if we are living in a place that we have never known before, while we watch innocent people being punished for the crimes of others. Times such as these can allow the feelings that stem from these painful moments, to become locked up within the heart, until we no longer see life in the way we once did.
What can help us during times such as these…and what can bring refreshment and renewal to our minds, while facing these difficult times? I would say that the remedy comes from knowing that even though this world is changing day by day…Jesus isn't. Just think…He's the same as He's always been…and nothing or no one can change Him or have control over Him; for He is God over all things.
I don't know about you; but I have witnessed moments lately, that had truly brought my heart to the floor…moments that I could have never imagined to be within this country. Times such as these can attempt to twist our way of thinking, while attempting to make us believe that nothing or no one could ever supersede the power that we had just witnessed. This is why we need to keep Hebrews 13:8 close to our hearts and continually allow this Bible verse to remind us, as to who really is the most powerful being. In this way, the air will begin to clear around us, as we once more become renewed in the presence of the One, who will always be the same yesterday… today…and forever.
Maybe today, you are struggling to live in a world that has grown so much different over time…and maybe because of this, you are struggling to get out of bed and face another new day. May I encourage you to reconnect with the One who will never change, even though this world continues to change…and may I encourage you to take hold of this piece of hope and hold tightly to it and never let go; for in doing so, the drab and dismal moments you've been facing, will soon begin to fade away, as the sunshine of God's presence begins to shine once more upon you. Remember…there is hope…and that hope is Jesus Christ!
Have a very blessed day…and never forget that God loves you so much! Take hold of Him and not this world…and He will always be there to take hold of you! Have a great day…and I hope that you will return again tomorrow, for another great God inspired visit! See ya soon!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
