Today, million of changes will take place in the lives of individuals. New Year resolutions will kick off with great excitement. People will pick up new habits. People will let go of bad habits. The list could go on and on. Don’t get me wrong; we all need a fresh start from time to time. So by all means, go for it.

Change is all around us. Everywhere you look things are constantly changing. Circumstances are always changing. We even have four seasons of change. There are days we wake up, and we feel alive and free. Then, there are days we wake up and feel down and dead. Change seems to be part of the human condition.

In a world of change, God knew we needed something sure to count on. God knew we need something unmovable, something constants in our lives that we could place our full faith in. Therefore, He offers Himself. He is that constant. His love, compassion and leading in our lives are unceasing and perfect. He is the only perfect reassuring source.

The Bible declares in Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”

The God that created all things is available and constant in your life. When everything around you is changing, He changes not. God is consistently loving us and guarding over us.

Many things in life are temporary. God is not temporary. God is faithful. He never changes.

In fact, 2 Timothy 2:13 tell us, “if we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself.”

His faithfulness is not temporary; His love doesn’t have an expiration date on it. When it comes to God’s love, you and I need to be thinking it is never-changing and never-ending. Your New Year resolutions may work and they may not. I sure wish you the best in the New Year, but God will never fail. Now go enjoy 2013.

I constantly have to remind myself that the unknown to me is not unknown to God.

To have all the steps planned, and documented seems safe. However, having it all planned can be an unsafe place to be in your walk with God.

I’m not advocating not planning ministry, or  not thinking through what needs to happen next,  but I’ve noticed that the unknown times seems to be where God shows up and does His best work.

I think we can spend way to much time praying for God to show us the next step when the real blessing could be in not knowing what to do next. Sometimes waiting in the unknown is the most holy place you can be.

So instead of poor mouthing the unknown times, celebrate the fact that you don’t have a clue and just watch God work. I promise you will not be disappointed.
