Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Hebrews 13 v 8
You can always count on Jesus.
Things are constantly changing. It can be disconcerting but one person you can always count on is Jesus. He never changes and so the things he said yesterday are true today, tomorrow and all time. Meditate on these sayings from Jesus:
With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)
“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. (Matthew 6:34)
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. (John 3:16-17)
“And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. (Luke 11:9-10)
If we take Jesus at his word, wow…. Jesus’ word is true today, believe it.
