Everything seems to be changing. We trust in God’s unchanging love.

Genesis 49:28-50:26

It was a time of ‘very great and sorrowful lamentation’ (Genesis 50:10). Jacob had died (Genesis 49:33). Soon, Joseph would be gone (Genesis 50:26). God was still there. He had been there in the past (Genesis 50:20). He would be there in the future (Genesis 50:24-25). Times are hard. We rejoice: ‘The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases’. An earthly life has ended. We say, ‘His mercies never come to an end’. We cannot cope. We discover that ‘His mercies are new every morning’. Everything seems to be changing. We trust in God’s unchanging love: ‘Great is Thy faithfulness’. It seems hopeless. We say, ‘I will hope in the Lord’ (Lamentations 3:22-24). ‘Bad’ things are happening to you. Do you need to be ‘reassured… and comforted’? – ‘God meant it for good… Do not fear’. The Lord ‘will provide for you’ (Genesis 50:20-21). Whatever happens,  remember this – God is in control, and He loves you (Romans 8:28)!
