Daily Devotional Bible Verse
Of old you laid the foundation of the earth,
and the heavens are the work of your hands.
They will perish, but you will remain;
they will all wear out like a garment.
You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away,
but you are the same, and your years have no end.
Think of a mountain.
Imagine its high soaring peaks and crags, its deep valleys and dense forests.
Imagine its age, with some of its trees being hundreds of years old, not to mention the rock itself.
A thing as daunting as a mountain can seem unchangeable, almost permanent. But we know that this isn’t so. Valleys are carved by the flowing of streams and blowing of the wind.
The panorama of peaks we enjoy are sculpted slowly, over thousands of years, into their present grandeur. Now, while a thousand years may seem a long time to us, there is one to whom it is just as a day (2 Peter 3:8).
Our God is everliving, eternal, and truly unchangeable.
The “foundation of the earth” is a reflection of his strength, existing for his eternal glory (Romans 1:20).
As the ages of men change, as the problems and persecutions of Christ’s Church shift, and even our lives transition from consistency to catastrophe, there is One apart from it all, yet keenly interested in it. Our God exists: apart from the changing seasons, apart from the rising sun and setting moon, apart from a nation’s wealth and dominance, apart from our personal prosperity or poverty.Our God exists forever.

As we read our Bible and see the love and grace God showed to his people throughout generations, we can be encouraged that the same God still takes care of his people.
God’s unchanging character helps us make it through the valleys knowing that the God who helped us through it the last time is still there walking beside us.
Dwell on God’s eternal nature and allow yourself to feel comfort in His unchanging presence.
