Consistency – We All Need It

Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Life Change

Consistency is something most of us look for in our lives. We want to hit the target again and again – being on target in our relationships for instance. In talking with young couples over the years and playing the I Expect Game – consistency is something that often comes up. This game is where I have a couple face each other and go back and forth telling each other what they expect as they enter marriage. Although marriage is not all about our expectations – it is meaningful to hear what your partner-to-be is expecting (or your current partner). Although we cannot always fulfill our partner’s expectations nor should we all of the time – consistency – faithfulness – longevity is something that most couples seek.

How consistent are we in our lives? That is a good question. Are we consistent in our marriages? How about in our other relationships? Are we consistent with our plan for better health – with our weight – with our exercise? Are we consistent with our work? Are we seen as someone who can be counted on?

How about with our walk with God? If we were honest – we might even answer – that our consistency is not very consistent – lol. In most areas of our life we need to improve our consistency. Thank God for grace.

But there is One in our life that is very consistent! If we’re looking for consistency we need to look no further! Hebrews 13:8 – Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Now that is consistent. Lord – in our marriages – in our relationships – in our walk with You – help us to be more like You!

Just something for us to think about today as we go on our way.
