Life on Earth is always changing. All lives, flora and fauna, are made to change from conception until death, and even then, we “push up daisies!” Change is inevitable, but many of us find change frightening because we can’t see the future and plan for it or take control of a situation. We are helpless to change the weather, our stature, or the future (Matthew 6:25-34).
Perhaps God forbade our consultation with astrologers, mediums, or the occult because our not knowing the future places us, like trusting, innocent children, in God’s hands where we belong. “Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.” Psalm 40:4 NIV
He Who is unchangeable and holds our destiny, is preparing a home for us where we can forget all the stress and hassle of changing. Our joy and peace, our fuller knowledge of God’s grace and character, and our love for each other will increase through the ages of eternity.
