“I am the Lord and I change not!"
(Malachi 3:6 KJV)
Have you ever accomplished a task once but found it hard to do it again? There are occasions when just the right combination of skill and grace coincide to produce the perfect outcome.
These are times when we bake the perfect pound cake, or cook the perfect pot of greens. It's the day that the dressing is perfect or the flowers planted in the spring sprout perfectly. There are years when the school football team seems unbeatable, playing successive games without a flaw, straight to the championships. How did you fare when you tried to do the same thing again?
If you are like most people, you found that perfection, while possible, is hard to duplicate. Even Tiger Woods misses a putt or two.
Although Micheal Jordan could sail through the air, there were games when he simply just couldn't put it together. The best singer can hit a flat note on occasion and the best figure skaters slip on the ice while performing the simplest routines. Many can manage the effort necessary to accomplish a feat the first time but they have trouble doing it again.
In Malachi 3:6, God reminded the sons of Jacob that, "I am the Lord and I change not!" What God did then he can do again! Not only can he do it again, but he can do it in a grander more miraculous way than he did in the beginning.
As believers, we are confident that God's power does not dwindle like a drained battery. We believe his power is a never ending flow that ebbs from the battlements of heaven to the edges of every known universe. Whatever God has done once, he can do again. Today, as you face new challenges, remember God has helped you before. He will do it again today!
