God Never Changes
One of the most important things about God is that He never changes. God is a perfect example of dependability.
Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. Psalms 90:2
People Change—God Does Not
One of the most important things about God is that He never changes. Every part of His character is as true today as it was at the beginning of time. In Malachi 3:6, God says “I the Lord do not change...” Because of this, we can describe all of God’s attributes as eternal. For example, His eternal love, His eternal justice and His eternal holiness. People aren’t like this. Only God is.
Creation is Finite; the Creator is Infinite
Our universe is finite. That means it will only be here for a little while and it hasn’t been here forever. It will end. The creation will have an end as well. Hebrews 1:12 says, “Like a robe you will roll them up, like a garment they will be changed. But you are the same, and your years will have no end.” Only God, the Creator, is infinite. That means God has existed and will continue to exist forever.
God Can’t Grow Up—or Grow Old
Newborn babies are mostly helpless. When they grow, they can eventually do everything an adult can do. When we’re old this growth reverses. Many times, we becomes less and less capable to do things. God is not like this! Numbers 23:19 tells us “God is not human...” He will never lose His ability to do anything. In fact, if God could change, he wouldn’t be God at all. Hebrews 13:8 tells us “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
What This Means to Us
We don’t have to wonder if God will be nice today and mean tomorrow. In a world where everything and everyone changes, we can depend on God’s faithfulness.
Pray this week:
and tell the Lord that you will trust Him to get you through any circumstance.
Hebrews 13:8 says God is the same yesterday, today and forever... does that mean He can help you in your times of trouble? How has He rescued you or changed you recently? How have you grown in your faith in God, and how did that come about?
