Revelation 22, Malachi 1-4

Malachi 3:6 – For I the LORD do not change; therefore, you, O children of Jacob, are not destroyed.

Lord God, thank you for your unchanging character. Though you have every reason to turn your back to me and on me because of my sinful and ever-changing character, you don’t change.  The beautify here is this – that even though you do not change, you do change me.  You, O God, remove my sin, resurrect my spirit and set me up before you as the one who love, the one whom you love dearly.  I am the one whom you love.  You turned your Father’s heart to me and sent your Son to save me.  What good news, Father!  And Jesus, you turned your brother’s heart to me and gave yourself up for me.  And your Spirit, dear Jesus, set his seal on my head and heart to mark me as a redeemed child of God.  The news doesn’t get any better than that, God!  So what I am worried about?  What am I stressing about?  Lord God, you have my family and I in your grasp.  You know our footsteps.  You turn us to yourself in faith and trust.  You want to to lead forward in faith and trust.  Holy Spirit give greater faith to me to trust your unchanging character. Amen.
