I was reading through a devotional today called Little Pillows. It’s a sweet, small book of devotions that are especially touching and deep, though written in somewhat antiquated language. The specific devotion I read was quite nurturing to my own soul. It talked of the fact that Jesus is the same. Have you ever considered that? It’s not something we think a lot about yet when I took time to ponder Jesus in this way I was deeply encouraged.
Completely faithful and wholly dependable.
The author encouraged us to recount the times when we have felt close to Jesus, bathed in His love and accepted by Him. Then she reminded us that if we’re not feeling that way today, it’s not because Jesus loves us any less. His love for us, His acceptance—total and complete joy and delight in us—has not changed one bit. It is the same as it always has been. The distance we feel from Jesus is because we’ve drawn away and have perhaps believed that He does not feel that way about us right now. The truth is, though, His feelings toward us have not changed. They are just as real as when we were feeling His love so fully. What has changed is our perception of His love.
Jesus stands with His arms just as open as before, just as ready to forgive and forget. He’s here to help you with your struggles, sins, and attitudes. He’s just as willing to embrace you and nurture you with His tender mercy. Nothing has changed. You are safe. Turn to Him and receive His love. Believe the truth that He is constant and His love for you remains. No matter what. Jesus is the same; He never changes.
That’s so comforting to me. I hope it blesses you today as well.
