Whenever someone signs up to follow this blog, I always like to find out a little more about them. Recently, a Canadian photographer joined my followers, and upon checking out his website I was greeted with the most stunning display of photographs I have seen in a long time. Most of them are of nature – rugged and fierce, or still and serene – but there are people and place shots too. (see http://hikingphoto.com/)
What occurred to me as I viewed them was how each picture captures a single moment in time. Beyond that instant, the view will change – perhaps imperceptibly – but the subject matter (and the photographer) will never be exactly the same. Fast or slow, change is inevitable.
There is only one thing that will never change: God. James in the Bible says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” (see chapter 1) Have you considered how profound that is?
That which is absolutely good, omnipotent Love, omnipresent Spirit, almighty Truth, all-inclusive Life will not vary, nor will there even be a hint of inconsistency. This describes a God you can always rely on. One Who is readily available and immediately present. And never fails. For all eternity.
Could there be anything better?
