Jesus Christ the same yesterday today and forever.
“He never changes.”
In the face of living with people with addictions all my life, I never realized how their addictions altered my perception of reality. Because of their addiction….it altered my original sense of reality to what would now become the “new normal reality.” The mind, heart, emotions change to adapt to that new reality.
Until one day that new sense of reality is interrupted. And there is a revelation of the false reality. The mind, heart, and emotions go thru a breakdown of the old….and there is an off-balance in the mind to adjust, and tear down the old to erect the new.
This is the process we as humans go thru. Imagine if this was a process for 38 years.
But then there is Jesus. He never changes. Even someone’s addiction does not change Him or alter His identity. Nothing changes Him. Not fear, abuse, neglect, abandonment, physical abuse, verbal abuse, deceit, betrayal, lies……
To be near or intimate with Him whom these things cannot alter His person, but He remains steadfast and unchanging.
Such strength of character. Such righteousness. His whole being is to love. To know us, and for us to know Him. I want to know Him so intimately so that I am so like Him that nothing changes/alters me. (Just like Him.)
He does not change.
Nothing changes Him.
But He changes everything.
