01 Feb New Season, Same God – Feb 13
By Yosia Yusuf
As we enter a new season of blessing in 2013, many of us are excited and look forward to what 2013 has in store for us. Most of us expect change for the better. We desire to see change in our self, our families, our cities and our culture.
The underlying motive behind our expectation of change is that we know that things are not as they should be. If things are perfect, we would not want anything to change. That is why we expect something new to happen in 2013.
The promise of God for 2013 is that it is a NEW season of blessing. Therefore, we need to ask God to pour out His rain of blessings on different areas of our life. We need to ask Him to restore our families, to heal our broken hearts, to revitalize our businesses and to transform our cities. But for all the change that we desire, our greatest hope remains the same. Our hope for change is rooted in the God who does not change.
“Of old You laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but You will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but You are the same, and Your years have no end” – Psalm 102:25-27
God is our constant hope in every seasons of life. Circumstance around our life changes, season changes, trial come and go, but our God remains the same. God is perfect and therefore does not need to change for better or worst. He does not need to learn or grow in any respect. Because He does not change, we can have confident that though the world may collapse, God remains true and He always keeps His promises; He is a good God! May 2013 will be the year where you trust the same old God who reigns from beginning to the end, from eternity to eternity, Jesus Christ the Lord.
