My son,

You live in a temporary world where nothing is permanent. Yes, from your finite place in time, things can seem permanent, but governments will fall and lives will be lost. Policies will change. Some will retire and move on, new ones will take their place. Rot and decay will take the most treasured possession given time. Fads will pass and trends will cease as quickly as they began, only to have new ones take their place.

It is because you live in a temporary world that you have such a hard time grasping my permanency. I never change, I will never pass away. I am without boundaries, without limits, without equal. I am and will always be. This is so essential for you to grasp so that you understand what is important. No matter the value of your cherished possession, or how great the relationship is, it is only temporary. Keep your focus on me, the one who never changes and will ever be here. Then those things that are temporary can be held in the right perspective.

Permanent, I AM

Verses for consideration: Hebrews 13:8, Hebrews 6:13-20, Malachi 3:6, James 1:17
