New Year, Same God

Last year I heard something in a clip or a sermon along the lines of “There will always be a new news story, but there will never be another Good News.”

How true is that?

We’re in an age of time where things are more uncertain than ever – mandates, policies and procedures, COVID variants – and it’s almost like “Well, what’s going to go down today?”

At the end of the day, what’s your constant?

Something I’ve learned is that God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. And not just these simple terms, but He has always been and always will be, infinitely and eternally, the same.

That’s really comforting in times like these.

This week, I finished volume 2 of the Attributes of God by Tozer. In both volumes, the gist is the same with every attribute – God is this attribute and all the other attributes all at the same time all the time, eternally. No one attribute is greater at any given moment. He’s perfect and He is the only thing that’s perfect, flawless and absolute. He’s the only thing that was and will ever be infinite and eternal. Sometimes that just blows my mind – there’s nothing on earth than can compare to God, to give us a relatable example when explaining that.

God gave us so many other examples in nature, in His creation, to show us other things about Him like His creativity, and yet we can’t grasp all of God that way.

Doesn’t that compel you to trust God?

I hope you turn to God this year and dig deeper into the Father’s Heart.

Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are my constant guide.

Psalms 119:98

The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you. He drives out the enemy before you; he cries out, “Destroy them!”

Deuteronomy 33:27

For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations. The Lord always keeps his promises; he is gracious in all he does.

Psalm 145:13
