Hebrews 13:8 KJV Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.

Consistency in character is something that you should strive to offer in your world today. If you need an example, consider studying the life of Jesus. As the verse suggests, Jesus Christ was, is, and will be the same. Every event Jesus was involved in that is detailed in scripture models consistency. The most important character trait that you can have is one of Christian love. Remember that every person must deal with situations that are unique to them.

Maybe the beginning words of the poem “Walk a mile in his moccasins” by Mary T. Lathrap will have meaning to you.

Pray, don’t find fault with the man that limps,
Or stumbles along the road.
Unless you have worn the moccasins he wears,
Or stumbled beneath the same load.

Exodus 33:19 KJV And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

The Lord is speaking to Moses in response to Moses’ request. Moses could not see God, but he could hear from God because he was attentive and willing to receive direction. The Lord works in your life in ways that you find hard to understand. Why? Because the Lord chooses to prepares our heart for what He is about to do. This reminds me of the words that came to Isaiah in 55:6 KJV, “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:”. In 55:8 KJV it reveals, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.”

May the Lord be speaking to you in ways that prepare you for experiencing God’s mercy and grace.

Romans 10:13 KJV For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Whosoever is not exclusionary. As an individual every living person has the right to call upon the Lord. That means you are acknowledging Jesus as God’s Son. You are also ready to confirm to the Lord that Jesus died for your sin. Jesus’ statement on the cross, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” was not just for those that wanted Him crucified. It was for all people who would breathe a breath of air in God creation. We are born into sin because of the sin virus that started in the Garden of Eden. The cure of that sin was Jesus shed blood on Calvary’s cross. His shedding of blood atoned for the sin of the world. Because of it you are saved from eternal damnation in the abyss called Hell. Praise God for making your pardon available through confess and turning away from sin.

Deuteronomy 3:22 KJV Ye shall not fear them: for the LORD your God he shall fight for you.

What a great and awesome summary statement that Joshua received from the Lord. God’s children were advancing into the land of promise. There had already been two great defeats from enemy forces. God had already said to His people to not fear what was before them.

God wants to always fight for you as you face the trials of life. Regardless of how dire situations look, God wants you to know that He will be with you. I recently saw a performance by a woman who was 30 years of age. She has cancer and a 2% chance of survival. Her choice of song was “It’s okay” was outstanding. When asked how she can sing with a smile and hope she said, “I do not fear what is ahead, I live of the joy I have today.” It’s okay. Rejoice in the Lord always.
