God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?
I am so thankful that God never changes. When we decided to go our own way in the garden this world took a turn for the worse. Adam and Eve made a decision to disobey and therefore we are subject to the sin passed down to us.
Although we are not like God and we change our focus and direction and all sorts of wrong turns he still loves us and the death of his son on that cross was such an important mark in time. Thank God that Jesus obeyed and was without sin. Jesus became sin for me and that is something I am totally greatfull for.
I will focus upon these scriptures today and rejoice in him:
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!
I try very very hard to rejoice always. Sin is always crouching at my door.
But let all who take refuge in You be glad, Let them ever sing for joy; And may You shelter them, That those who love Your name may exult in You.
I will exalt the name of Jesus.
Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
Let me have compassion for others.
When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.
Today I will be glad and rejoice in your love for us.
I will open my heart and look for your presence in this day.
