This psalm reminds us that our security can’t be found in any of the things in this ever-changing world. Instead our security is in God and his promises.*
Never changing, the same yesterday, today, and forever. The world and all of its trouble does not take God by surprise, nor is He troubled. And we should not be either. His plan of salvation for all who will be saved, the promise that everything will be set right, and an end to pain, suffering and death has not changed.”the flowers of the field and the stars in the heavens will fade away. But you, Lord are always the same…
