I have lived in my home for 13 years. Been in the same neighborhood for 20. We have seen many changes, in our individual lives, in our family, in our community. We have a stable neighborhood and a stable community, even in these perilous times.
Our lives have been far from stable. Tumultuous is more like it.
A house on a road near me has huge boulders in the front lawn. Have they been there all this time? I can’t say. I only noticed them recently. They may have been there since the area was settled, but they are only now part of my visual consciousness.
In the Book of Malachi 3:6 it says, “I the LORD do not change.” (NIV) It matters not whether I knew Him. He is, was, and will be. He existed before my fellowship with Him and He will reign for all eternity.
The landscape of my life has changed so very often that it has been breathtaking. But, like those rocks, the LORD has been on the throne, steadfast and secure, never changing.
Have you leaned on the never changing Rock? Are you even aware of the strength and groundedness that He can be in your life? There is still time to know Him. Don’t miss the opportunity. Don’t drive past the chance for His wonderful presence in your life.
