Vicissitude (Malachi 3:1-7)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “vicissitude.”  The last book of of the OT was written, and then God was silent for like 400 years.  Could you imagine how crazy this must have been?  Well, God reiterates some truth in today’s passage that will withstand time.  The writer of this book talks about the way being prepared for the One who is to come. How awesome that must have been; at which time the only thing anyone could really do is wait…

“Then I will draw near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers and against the adulterers and against those who swear falsely, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages, the widow and the orphan, and those who turn aside the [i]alien and do not fear Me,” says the Lord of hosts. “For I, the Lord, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, [l]are not consumed.
~Mal 3:5-6

My question is: how are you waiting with expectation on the Lord. Just a JC fulfilled prophecy and came to make God’s promises good, we also wait knowing that God’s word never brings on vicissitudes, or irregular or sudden changes.  He is unchanging, and will be the stalwart in your life.  My prayer is that each of you takes a moment in the midst of craziness and thank God for his constant care for us.

Praying for you,
