My phone and computer both love to suggest updates in the middle of my busiest times! I never like being interrupted as it takes time to prepare and complete the update. But I do understand the importance of adding new features and protecting against viruses and spam. Some of the updates alter a site so much that I need to re-learn how to navigate it. However, the extra effort is usually worth it.
In a world where technology is in a constant state of change, it is comforting to know that my Savior does not need an “update.” Our verse for today teaches that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is perfect and needs no alterations! He is always up to date with what is happening. There is never a need for a new and improved version. There is never a connection issue or a lack of response.
Everything that we need to know about the Lord is revealed in His Word. He does not change nor does His revelation. His message transcends time and is always current. The God of the Old testament is the same God as of the New. His faithfulness and power shown then is the same faithfulness and power He shows today.
I need Him to be constant and not capricious. I need Him to be faithful to His Word and unchangeable. What was proven true in times past continues to be true today. He is perfect and perfection has no need of change.
Thank you Lord, that You do not change and I can always count on You.
