Growing in Faith
“For I am the LORD, I do not change.” (Malachi 3:6, NKJV) Aren’t you glad that the Lord does not change? Jehovah is never-changing. This is a difficult concept to understand because we change all the time. Things around us change all the time. We are living in a changing world. Life for us means change. We go through changing phases of our life as we grow older. So when we hear that the Lord does not change, it’s difficult to grasp, but we can rejoice in that truth.
When everything else is changing, God doesn’t change. His Word does not change. There is one constant that we can be assured of in our lives and that is God’s unchanging character.
As we observe our lives and the lives of those around us, this may not seem possible in our human outlook. But, as we observe God in our lives, we can know that God’s love for us never, ever changes. His blessings are always there; sometimes we just need to look a little more intensely to see them. It’s our revelation of Him that grows. We learn more about Him today then we knew about Him yesterday.
In Hebrews 13:8 (NLT) we read, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” So when things seem to be in an upheaval and nothing remains the same in your life—remember Jesus doesn’t change. He is your rock—your foundation on which your life rests. The only constant in life is Jesus. We can trust God each day being certain that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Numbers 23:19 (BSB) says, "God is not a man, that He should lie, or a son of man, that He should change His mind. Does He speak and not act? Does He promise and not fulfill?" The God who parted the waters of the Red Sea is still the same God today. God never changes. God is Faithful. No matter what our circumstances may be, we can look to God each day for strength, hope, peace, encouragement, and comfort. Each day, we can trust God with everything that concerns us. He is the God of Grace and the God of Hope.
It does not get any simpler than this:
God is our Anchor in the storms of change.
Every day, we can find strength in the One who never changes.
God is the only constant in life.
God is our Source
