My friend’s heart ripped in two. Her faith tumbled like a boulder down her mountain of disappointments. Nothing seemed to stop the avalanche of sorrow. Fear. Despair. She clung to the promises of God, only to watch with horror as the downward spiral continued.

Devastated? Oh, that doesn’t even begin to describe her pain.

Her emotions rose and fell like the undulating beat of a drum. She raised her hands to praise her God, only to fall crumpled on the floor moments later, despair overwhelming her. Up and down. High and low. Peace and anguish beyond description.

And then the Spirit of God reminded her of a precious Truth: “I am the Lord. I do not change. Therefore you are not consumed” (Malachi 3:6).

Ponder that for a moment. “I am the Lord. I do not change.”

Is your world crumbling around you? Is your faith being shaken to the core? Believe it or not, that is a good thing. When our faith goes through the fire, that is where we learn how precious it is. That is where we learn Who God is. Jesus made it very clear to us that “many are the afflictions of the righteous” and “in this world we will have tribulation”. Welcome to the fallen world.


But, God is our constant! He. Does. Not. Change. And what He says He will do? Ahhh…Yes! He will do. He is not a man that He should lie. In an ever-changing world, God, the Father – your God, my God – is the constant.

Not for a moment will He forsake you.

Father God, You are an awesome God! Open our hearts to know and understand that You are the constant, sure anchor that holds our lives together. We can rest in Your faithfulness. We can bask in Your love all the days of our lives no matter what comes our way. In You, alone, do we place our hope and our trust. We love You, Lord and we give You praise.
