Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Do you worry? I wonder what you worry about. Is it your future, family, money situation, your health? Or maybe, like me, you spend your time having anxious thoughts about the little things, like the car starting in the morning, the bills, having enough time to do everything, the onset of Christmas; I could go on. There is after all an insurance for almost everything. This morning I noticed an insurance for dental health and I immediately started worrying that my teeth were going to fall out through lack of money. Here in the UK people spend a fortune on private health insurance because they worry that our free health service will not be enough for them. We live in an everchanging world, and the media and advertisers make the most of our fears for their own financial gain.
Jesus Christ never ever changes. God says to us in the Bible, 'Do not fear, do not be anxious, I will provide for you'. He repeats this countless times throughout the Bible. Some say that the words 'do not fear' appear 366 times; once for every day and for a leap year! He is our Provider. He is our loving Father. He promises to give us all that we need. The God of the Bible is the God of the now. He is telling us not to worry today, not to worry for a second longer. Let's say together, 'I trust You LORD, for everything I need, now and forever. Everything'.
