The changing circumstances of life mean that all of us will face uncertainty and upheaval at times. Think of the unexpected events that Jesus’ disciples experienced as they followed Him: confrontation with crowds and authorities, supernatural miracles, watching Jesus at work, and witnessing His transfiguration, death and resurrection! When unexpected circumstances catch us by surprise, Jesus, the Unchanging One, calls us to rely in who He is and confidently follow Him.

While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!” When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown to the ground, terrified. But Jesus came and touched them. “Get up,” he said. “Don’t be afraid.”—Matthew 17:5-7

Prayer: Jesus, I rely on You, the Unchanging One, to strengthen me to fearlessly and confidently respond to unexpected circumstances. Give me ears to hear Your voice and eyes for no one but You, I ask in Your name, amen.
