The Same Through the Ages

Promises and Circumstances

Listening to Newsboys ‘Your Love Never Fails’, I caught myself reflecting on God’s faithfulness and our ability to rely on Him. The snippet in the song runs as follows

“You stay the same through the ages, your love never changes, there may be pain in the night, but joy comes in the morning”

Sometimes God speaks specific themes into your life. I began to marvel at how we have the incredible ability to be able to trust in God despite what circumstances we may be facing. The reality is every person faces challenges, struggles, issues and trials; big and small. The reality also, is God never fails us. As people, we may want God want to do certain things, like bring healing, deliverance or take care of something straight away. I know I would bring healing to people I know; but this is where we need to respect and trust the sovereignty of God (sovereignty = supreme power or authority). God knows the bigger picture, God has the greater insight to the plan for us. Sometimes we may need shaping in our faith and conviction, sometimes God may be more concerned about our spiritual mindset than our physical state, sometimes God wants to us learn to let go and trust him (to name a few reasons)

As hard as it may seem, one absolute we can always rely on is, that God is always the same. He always loves us. He never fails us. Throughout the ages, God has continually delivered those that follow him, obey him and love him. I think that is the greatest promise anyone can give us. Focus on His promise, rather than my circumstances.
