My Detroit Tigers are losing to the Boston Red Sox tonight. If things remain as they are, the Tigers will have lost their fourth game in a row. Baseball is a funny game. A week ago the Tigers were on top of the world having completed a sweep of the New York Yankees in the Bronx. They looked unbeatable.
How quickly things change. They look like patsies this week and they can't seem to do anything right. It made me think of how quickly things in our life can change. We can't take anything for granted. I think that is what Isaiah was saying when he compared life to grass. He says it is here today and gone tomorrow. Then Isaiah goes on to tell us that the only thing that lasts is the Word of God.
The truth is that life goes by us fast. People come and go. Situations rise and fall. But the good news is that God has promised to be with us in all circumstances, in all ways, every day. He is dependable and true. He will be there all the way.
