Where Has All the Security Gone?

"I the LORD do not change. So you, O descendants of Jacob, are not
destroyed. Ever since the time of your forefathers you have turned
away from my decrees and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will
return to you,' says the LORD Almighty" - (Malachi 3:6-7, NIV).

The sun set last night and rose again this morning as it has for
thousands or millions of years. While some things never change, we
can't say that about life in the last few decades—not to mention what
lies ahead in the coming years!

I read that if we were to put the entire world's knowledge from the
beginning of time until 1845 on a graph it would measure only 1 inch
tall. From 1845 to 1945—just 100 years—the graph would measure 3
inches tall. But from 1945 until today the graph would be as tall as
the Washington monument.

Change today is the order of the day. It has been said that today's
average worker will need to be retrained at least three times during
his working career to keep up with all the changes. Changes in
technology, lifestyle, philosophy, morals, etc., are happening so
fast it is difficult to keep up with them all.

Furthermore, the security that so many of us knew in earlier times
has pretty much vanished. With escalating terrorism worldwide unless
we have an anchor for the soul we can be left drifting on a restless
changing sea of uncertainty. But for those who have faith in God, of
this one thing we can be absolutely sure: He never changes! His love
is from everlasting to everlasting and he is still in control of the
world and universe no matter what. As the Bible says, "I the Lord do
not change."

Americans have engraved on their coins, "In God we trust." But until
that commitment is engraved on people's hearts and we genuinely trust
in the God who changes not, we will have no lasting security.

Prayer: "Our Loving Heavenly Father, please help us as a nation to
come to the realization that blessed is the nation whose God is the
Lord, and that without our trust in you, there is no security. And
please start your work in my heart. Thank you for hearing and
answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you all.
