Hebrews 13:8 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
8 Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is [always] the same, yesterday, today, [yes] and forever (to the ages).
Jesus is always the same. This verse should give us great comfort in a world that is constantly changing and being filled with darkness each day. God is in control. Jesus is on the throne. He holds all things together by His mighty power (Colossians 1:17). There is nothing that we will face that will surprise the Living God. Jesus is greater than any challenge or trial that we face. Through it all God calls us to trust Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Placing all things in His hands.
He is the same, yesterday, today, and forever. All that we read in the Old Testament reveals to us the character and nature of God Almighty. Many times Christians may only spend time reading and studying the New Testament. But when we study the full counsel of God’s word we gain a greater understanding and picture of who God truly is. We see His faithfulness in the lives of so many who have gone before us. There are real moments in our journey with the Lord that we may doubt the promises and faithfulness of God. But we must hold fast to the truth of His word and know that He is unchanging.
Today if you find yourself struggling with doubt and unbelief, I would encourage you to get alone with the Lord and ask Him for help. Immerse your mind and heart in the word of God and cry out to Him. He is not calling you to struggle through life alone. He is calling you to trust Him and know that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is not changing. His love is not changing. His faithfulness is unchanging. Hold fast to your faith in Jesus Christ and know that He will lead, guide and direct you.
Father I come today and ask you for strength. I pray that you would help me to overcome any doubt and unbelief I may be facing. Help me to trust you and your word. You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. Jesus I thank you for dying for my sins. I thank you for your resurrection. Today I have victory and authority because of who you are. I have no reason to live in fear. I have no reason to allow doubt and unbelief to cripple me. Help me Father this day to be the warrior and child you have called me to be. I thank you today that I am royalty in your kingdom. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen!
