Same God

We all struggle with spiritual discouragement and lethargy. Some days our circumstances threaten to overwhelm us, and we struggle just to pray. Many times, we just don’t feel like doing the things we know we should. For one reason or another, God sometimes seems far off and unreachable.

David faced times like these in his life. The Psalms are filled with verses that express his despair and feeling of abandonment. Yet the Psalms 119:89 these scriptures also give us the key to living victoriously during the dark periods of life. “Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven. Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands. They stand this day according to Your ordinances…” My circumstances or feelings have not changed God. He is the same God today as He was when He hung the stars in the sky, led the Israelites through the Red Sea, and fed the five thousand. Parted the Red Sea and He is that same God today!

All things, even the things affecting me right now, are God’s servants. The circumstance, people, and events around me are all under God. They are His servants, designed to help and bless me spiritually.

“If Your law had not been my delight, Then I would have perished in my affliction. I will never forget Your precepts, For by them You have revived me. I am Yours, save me; For I have sought Your precepts. The wicked wait for me to destroy me; I shall diligently consider Your testimonies.”

Recalling God’s faithfulness and control over everything that touches us gives us strength to walk with God even when we feel like giving up in despair. After all, our feelings and circumstances have not changed God. He is perfectly capable of sustaining us if we will only let Him. We simply need to choose to delight in and diligently consider God’s precepts (His principles and character) despite how we feel. Choosing to delight in God might not be easy. It might even involve hard work. But only God can revive and save our soul from spiritual lethargy.

Next time you feel spiritually drained or inadequate, remember that you have a choice. You can wrap yourself up in excuses and self-pity, or you can choose to draw your strength from an unchanging God.

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Change is taking place all around us 24/7. Sometimes the revolving clock of life brings about changes that assures and remind us that we have no guarantee of what will happen next because we are not the one who are in full control, God is! Right now, you may be a mountain top experience and before we go to bed tonight, we could find ourselves in a valley.

The question to be answered is “are you willing to press through the oppositions of life” to receive what God has for you? One thing of a surety is that life has its share of ups and downs and NONE of us are exempt from life unexpected changes.

Today we can have peace in the midst of “life” because God declares that He is the same yesterday, today and forever. God with us! Emmanuel! The same God who delivered us in the past is the same God who can do it again today!
