"I am the Lord, I change not."

“I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed” Malachi 3:6

No subject of contemplation will tend more to humble the mind, than thoughts of God. But while the subject humbles the mind it also expands it.There is something exceedingly improving to the mind in a contemplation of the Divinity. I believe the highest science, the loftiest speculation, the mightiest philosophy, which can ever engage the attention of a child of God, is the name, the nature, the person, the work, the doings and the existence of the great God whom he calls his Father. Other subjects we can compass and grapple with; in them we feel a kind of self-content, and go our way with the thought, “Behold I am wise.” But when we come to this master-science, we turn away with the solemn exclamation, “I am but of yesterday, and know nothing.”

One Stable Rock

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Hebrews 13:8

How many and how grievous have been the changes of last year? Change is part and parcel of everything in a fallen creation (Genesis 3:16-19). The Lord Jesus Christ is not part of creation, not even the very first part, but is Lord over all creation and not subject to any change. In him God’s children can look forward to glorious liberty from creation’s present bondage to decay (Romans 8:21-23 It is well that there is one stable rock amidst the changing billows of this sea of life. It is well that there is one person who is the same

The Faithfulness Of God

“The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me: your love, O Lord, endures for ever - do not abondon the works of your hands.” Psalm 138:8

Do you open up every area of your life to the One who has promised never to forsake his people? Are there any aspects of your relationship with him which are not all that they should be (Malachi 1:6)? Cry out to God, that he would not forsake you in your business, in your family; that he would not forsake you either upon your bed by night or in your business by day. And may God grant, when you and I shall come to the end of this year, we may have a good tale to tell concerning the faithfulness of God in having answered our prayers, and having fulfilled his promise.

Blessed New Year

I wish, my brothers and sisters, that during this year you may live nearer to Christ than you have ever done before.The New Year may not always be as “Happy” as we would wish, but the Christian is blessed in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places (Ephesians 1:3) and can look forward to a “Blessed New Year” throughout the problems that may come . And as for some of you who are not saved, and do not know the Redeemer, I would urge you that this very day you would come to Christ.
