In response to today’s nudge regarding the character of God, I am posting an article entitled, “The God Of Absolutes”: http://mbriley.preachersfiles.com/2007/11/30/the-god-of-absolutes/.
Even though the thoughts and whims of man are constantly changing, God’s promises do not change (Hebrews 6:10-20). We can count on Him to be with us in every situation and trial that we face (Psalm 23:4; cf. Isaiah 43:1-2).
“Time is filled with swift transition; Naught of earth unmoved can stand; Build your hopes on things eternal, Hold to God’s unchanging hand”: http://www.paradisepbc.org/singing/Hold%20to%20Gods%20Unchanging%20Hand.mp3
Usually when my wife and I get in a heated argument, I’ve found that the best way to deal with anger is to just simply get out of the house and go walking. Not only does it cool the fires of anger between me and my wife, it also allows both of us to think rationally about the situation, instead of using our emotions.
Additionally, walking allows me the time to not only “think” about the situation, but to also take it to the Lord in prayer, relying on His wisdom and understanding, in order to arrive at a solution to the problem.
