“I Change Not.”

For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Malachi 3:6

There has been much made over this statement throughout history, and rightly so.  There are so many different directions you could go with this truth.  There are many applications that you could make from this verse.  It stands as a rock of comfort to those who have put their trust in God.

I am thankful that God does not change.  I can trust in that.  Did you ever stop to think that, if God were to change, all of our faith would be vain.  We could not put our faith in a God Who was constantly changing.  We would never know what He expected from us.  We would constantly be living in fear.  We could have no peace.

Other “gods” change.  Many other “gods” do things on a whim.  They decide to be merciful one day and destroy you the next day.  Imagine trying to serve a “god” like that.

Our God changes not.  He is the same yesterday, today and forever.  He is the eternal God.  And He has given us all of His instructions in His eternal Word.  We do not have to doubt what He has said.  It is written down for us.  We do not have to wonder what He will want from us.

It can be a comfort to us to know that He has said that He would never leave us nor forsake us.  And He is not going to change His mind.  He has given us a hope that will not be taken away.  We can rest in and take comfort in His promises because we know that He changes not.

We should thank God today that He changes not!

  1. And I do thank Him today for that! Where would I be if God were as changeable as…me?


  2. With so much that does change constantly, and needing to change in Him myself, I truly am thankful and count on His promises and His unchanging love. God bless you Ben. This was great!
