Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)
Most of us have probably met someone who caused us to be ill at ease by their unpredictable mood swings. My father worked as an electrician in what he referred to as a “Sign Shop” for many years, and his boss was such a person. He never knew when he reported to work if his boss was going to be in a good mood and set a positive tone for the day or in a bad mood and cause tension in the entire work place. I could usually tell which had occurred during the day by how my dad came through the back door of our home after work. Singing or whistling signaled a good mood boss day and quiet or grumpy, well, not so good.
Unlike humanity, Jesus Christ has, is, and will be consistently the same. His compassion, mercy, grace, abilities, and expectations are the same always. No changes or mood swings occur as a result of circumstance. His yes is yes, and his no is no. He is moving forward by his divine calendar to complete his flawless objective. He is always faithful, the Rock upon which we can place our lives in complete trust. He is the one who has forgiven us and facilitates the completion of his plans for us in this earth life.
Thank you, Lord, for your faithfulness, forgiveness, and consistency, Thank you for your unwavering guidance and care. I can always know what to expect from you, and what is best for your glory, which will ultimately be best for me. Amen.
“forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.”
