Some people try fad diets to lose weight, but many stop as soon as they start. Why? Frustration may be the cause. And, I totally understand. One co-worker shared his diet with me: several calories one day, a few the next, some foods one day, and others the next. If I had to remember all of those details, then I’d quit, too!
That’s why I’m glad the Word never changes. Jesus makes that especially clear in the verse cited above. That means, every time you open the Bible, Genesis will be the first and Revelation will be the last book. More importantly, the promises contained therein will never change. You’ll always be more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37), all things will always work for your good (Romans 8:28), and Christ will always give you strength to do all things (Philippians 4:13)! The Lord will always be your Shepherd (Psalm 23:1), He’ll always fight our battles (Exodus 14:13), and He’ll always keep us in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3)!
This recharge is an invitation to celebrate, because God’s Word doesn’t change. And if it doesn’t change, then it never fails. No wonder He told Isaiah, “It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it” (Isaiah 55:11, New Living Translation).
