One Year Bible Reading Guide:

Lamentations 3:1-66
Hebrews 1:1-14
Psalm 102:1-28
Proverbs 26:21-22 

 

Verse of the day:

But you remain the same, and your years will never end. (Psalms 102:27)


Let’s look at a portion of our Psalms reading for today.

 

 

“In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.  They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment.  Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded.  But you remain the same, and your years will never end.” Psalms 102:25-27

 

 

Now let’s look at a portion of our New Testament reading for today from Hebrews.

 

 

“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.  They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment.  You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed.  But you remain the same, and your years will never end.” Hebrews 1:10-12

 

 

 It’s not often in our One Year reading plan that we have a scripture making reference to another scripture and the original scripture in the same daily reading.  But it happened today.  If you look at them they are pretty much the same with a few changes.  Speaking of change, are you one of those people who thrive on change or cringes at the thought of change?  Or are you somewhere in the middle?  The fact is change goes hand in hand with life.  In our lives there are going to be changes.  Sometimes change is good.  Sometimes it doesn’t feel good at all.  Sometimes change catches us off guard.  Your health changes or the health of someone you love changes.  You might find yourself having to change jobs.  A loved one may pass away.  A lot of things change for us every day.  Know that as long as you are living you are going to experience change.  Everything changes.  Our scriptures tell us that even heaven and earth will change.  Wow, is there anything or anyone who doesn’t change?  Is there anything or anyone that we can count on to always be there? (The answer is yes) With so many changes ahead of us, on what or whom can we depend? Here are some words to the old hymn, “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow,” that helps answer our question along with our scriptures.

 

 

I don't know about tomorrow/I just live from day to day/I don't borrow from its sunshine/For its skies may turn to gray/I don't worry o'er the future/For I know what Jesus said/And today I'll walk beside Him/For He knows what is ahead
 

 


Chorus: Many things about tomorrow/I don't seem to understand/But I know who holds tomorrow/And I know who holds my hand

 



I don't know about tomorrow/It may bring me poverty/But the one who feeds the sparrow/Is the one who stands by me/And the path that be my portion/May be through the flame or flood/But His presence goes before me/And I'm covered with His blood

 

 

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”  (Hebrews 13:8)  Now that’s someone you can count on.
