Malachi 3:6a “I the Lord do not change!”
I can’t help thinking about things we use today that we didn’t have just a few years ago. Just a few years ago, cellular phones were not even invented. Today, the masses can’t function without them. Things not even speculated when many of us were kids, are changing our world today.
So much change creates stress. If you are young, you stress out wondering how to get your hands on the new technology. How you are going to pay for it? Because you have to keep up with the times. Right? Of course, if you are older, you stress out trying to figure out how to use the new technology, much less pay for it. So much stress, caused by the changing times.
I’m glad one thing never changes. God was, is, and always will be the same. He is an unchanging God. His word stands–unchanged–no matter what the world is doing or how it’s changing.
Time changes many things. I look in the mirror and it makes me very aware of that fact. Everything else in creation changes, even mountains and oceans. But, God is always the same. I can count on God.
- God’s love for me never changes: Jeremiah 31:3 “I have loved you with an everlasting love.”
- God’s Word never changes: Isaiah 40:8 “The Word of our God shall stand forever.”
- God’s purpose for my life will never change: Psalm 33:11 “His plans endure forever. His purposes last eternally.”
Psalm 125:1 “Those who trust in the Lord are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.”
