What Do You Need Today?
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." Hebrews 13:8, NKJV
This is great news! Jesus Christ is the same…He hasn't changed! He is the same yesterday, today and forever. What does that mean to us?
It means...He's alive! It would be hard for Jesus to be "the same" if He was dead. He's not! He is risen from the dead and this puts Jesus in an entirely different league than any other religious leader on the planet.
It means...He's still doing what He's always done. If He wasn't, He wouldn't be the same. Jesus—through His Word and by His Spirit—is still revealing the truth about God's kingdom and His purposes and plans. Jesus is still extending mercy and forgiveness to sinners, prostitutes, adulterers, liars, thieves, murderers and every other person who hasn't been "perfect"!
It means...Jesus is still healing. He wouldn't be the same "today" if He didn't do what He did "yesterday"! He is still healing broken hearts, diseased bodies and scarred emotions and every other part of us that is "sick." Jesus is still opening blind eyes, delivering people from demonic bondage and doing miracles for those who believe.
It means...He is still giving. If He was a withholder, He wouldn't be the same. Jesus is still giving peace, strength, grace, wisdom, favor, food, clothing, good gifts and the power of the Holy Spirit to those who seek Him first and foremost.
What do you need Jesus to do in your life? Do you need Him to do "today" some of the things He did "yesterday"? Jesus said, "...all things are possible to him who believes." Jesus promised that He would fill, touch and satisfy those who are thirsty, hungry and desperate for Him. He promised to be found—yesterday, today and forever—by those who believe and seek Him with their whole hearts. (Interestingly, He never promised anything to or for the half-hearted, lukewarm, apathetic, fence-riding, or doubtful person...so don't be that person!)
Where are you? Ready to seek the Lord? Ready to believe? Ready to go after Jesus—the One who is the same yesterday, today and forever—with your whole heart?
Say It: "Father, I believe in Jesus and that He is the same yesterday, today and forever! I believe He is alive. I believe He is doing today the very same things He did yesterday. He has not changed; He is the same! Today, I seek You with my whole heart. I am thirsty and hungry for You, Lord. I trust You. In Jesus' Name, I pray. Amen."
