“Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.
They will perish, but you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will
change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but you are the same, and
your years have no end.” –Psalms 102:25-27
If there is one thing, we have experienced over the past year, it is how to deal with uncertainty. It seems at every turn there is change, ambiguity, and a shaking. Nothing is constant or assured. The places people have anchored their lives to have let loose and many have been set adrift in the sea of insecurity.
But we, as believers, have a hope and an anchor that holds even in the ragging storm. Our God has been described in Scripture as our Rock, our Bulwark, our Solid Foundation, our Mountain, our Refuge, and our Strong Tower. All these pictures of our God tell us we have a strong and unchanging God. He is constant. He is unmoved. He is unchanging. He is forever eternal in His existence. Even creation declares He changes not.
When God created the physical world, He reflected his consistency of unchanging in everything. Scientists have discovered what is called the “Golden Ratio” that is used when mathematically observing the created world. It used to be called the “Divine Portion” because the ratio is so constant that no matter what part of the created physical world you would observe it remains unmovable. There is this unchanging rule that reflects our God who does not change in the creation. The Unchanging God is evident in all that we see. In Colossians 1: 15-17, Paul tells us that God created all things, and He is the constant that holds it all together.
Even in the chaos of our life we have an unchanging, unmovable, and never-ending God that is reflected in everything we see. We can put our trust in God knowing that He will keep us secure no matter what the circumstances may be in our life. His character is always true and the same. He never changes! He is always the same.
DECLARATION: Today, no matter how chaotic my world is right now, I will put my trust in You, oh Lord, the Unchanging God. My life is secure in You forever.
