Change is the one thing you can always count on, they say. And yet change is one of the most difficult things for us to accept. I’ve been giving you words of wisdom for the workplace, daily nuggets from God’s Word to remind you of his principles as you face various situations at work.

And one of those situations is change! A. W. Tozer wrote: “We rest in Thee without fear or doubt and face our tomorrows without anxiety.” Do you face your tomorrows without fear or anxiety? I find that the great majority of us live in fear of change: What will I do if this happens? What will happen to me if that happens? Where will I go if this doesn’t work out? Who will be there for me if he or she leaves me? How can I learn to cope with these changes in my lifestyle or my job routine?

One of the greatest attributes of our Mighty God is that he never changes. Change happens when things improve or when they decay. But God has no need for improvement, and he cannot be less that what he is already. Therefore, he has no need of change and he’s promised us that he never will. Oh, what comfort and peace this should bring to our hearts, as we live in this world where change is the only thing you can count on.

It was when I was facing a very uncertain future, with many changes ahead, that I learned the joy and comfort of trusting in a God who never changes. My first reaction was to go into panic mode, but after spending time with God, I started clinging to the promise that he will never change. As I have faced more changes in my life, I am more confident than ever before that my days are written in God’s book and nothing is out of control. One thing that can never change is God’s love and his presence in your life, and as long as you can be certain of that, you can accept the other changes you may face.

Dear friend, if you’re facing some changes today, some unknown paths ahead of you, be confident of this: Your God will never change, and he has promised never to leave you or forsake you. Constantly remind yourself that he’s the same yesterday, today and forever. Whatever changes come your way, they cannot destroy you because he is your refuge and strength, and that will always be true no matter what happens.
