Rainy Days and Mondays. . .

This past Monday was a dark, grey rainy day.  My husband and I were traveling down the road and I commented about the color of a particular road sign.  My husband thought I said "sun".

He laughed and said, "I don't see the sun," and even as he said it he realized he had misunderstood what I had said.

"Whether we can see it or not, I have it on great authority that the sun is still there," was my reply.

That statement is so true.  No matter how dark the clouds or storm makes the day, we know the sun is still there.  It hasn't ceased to be.  Why do we know it is there?  Because it has always been there, every morning, every day for as long as we, or anyone else for that matter, can remember.  We have total and complete faith in the sun that it will continue to come up every morning and set every evening.

If we have such unshakable faith in the sun, which is a physical thing that could possibly cease to be at some point, how much more unshakable faith should we have in the Lord and God of the universe who "was and is and is to come?" (Revelation 4:8.)

The Lord our God is and has been eternal, He has always been and will always be exactly what He is and He will never do anything which contradicts His nature and character. 

We can have faith that our Lord will always be for us in every situation exactly what we need Him to be, that He will always be working out His eternal purpose in Christ Jesus in our lives and that He is always for us.  It is a fact we can believe in even more surely than the sun rising in the east each morning.

"Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; 
as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:   
But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end." 
Psalm 102:25-27
