It amazes me how unfaithful the human race can be. We go through life fluttering from one thing to the next. We put our faith in a thousand different things every week. Our culture is conditioning us to be ok with change if for no other reason than change itself.
Our God is faithful; He is unchanging. The author of Deuteronomy says, “Know therefore that your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love Him and keep His commandments, to a thousand generations.” The book of Deuteronomy is all about remembering. The key Hebrew word “zawkar,” meaning “remember,” is used 18 times. Even the meaning of the word “Deuteronomy” means “second law” or “second giving of the law.” In other words, God did not change. He reminds His people over and over in the New and Old Testaments of who He is.
So, who is He?
Today, in the cold and snowy Indiana winter, there is sunshine because God is faithful. In the turmoil of a culture that kills and hates one another, God is merciful. I wonder at God’s faithfulness in this very moment! But I know, Lord, I need you. Help me continue to be amazed at who You are and how much You love me.
