But God


We live in a world where it seems as though everything has fallen apart. We look in vain for peace and unity. We are inundated with loud voices bringing news of disaster and division. We look for someone to step in and make things right - someone to bring peace where there is war and love instead of hate - but there is no-one. Leaders fail to keep their promises and truth has become some vague, subjective idea.

But God... Above and below and around all the apparent chaos is One who holds it all together. He is the One who set time in motion with a plan for every moment of every day. Before the story began, the perfect Author knew how it would all end. Before you drew your first breath, He knew your life story. In the midst of uncertain circumstances, we can stand on the solid ground of His unchanging character and absolute truth.

We are promised peace in the midst of the storm, unconditional love, mercy, hope, grace, and a unity that can be found only in Him.

"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful." John 14:27

"The sum of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting."
Psalm 119:160

"I in them and You in Me - so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent Me and have loved them even as You have loved Me." John 17:23

This is a repost from 2015. Instead of getting better it has all just gotten worse. But God - remains the same. I'm so thankful for an unchanging God.
