For I am the LORD, I do not change…
We’re like twigs caught in an ever-rolling stream of change.
Every moment is different than the previous one.
Our bodies change, our children change, our work changes,
our health & wealth change; our culture & world are constantly in flux.
But at the core of the universe is an unchanging God—
God is immutable,
God is enduring,
God is abiding,
God is changeless,
God is the same yesterday, today & forever.
In Him we have “an anchor of the soul, both sure & steadfast
Alexander Maclaren wrote about Malachi 3:6
“This is the confidence with which we should cheer ourselves when
we look upon the past & when we anticipate the future…
We have…an unchanging love… a faithfulness that never departs from His word…
a purpose of blessing that will not be turned aside…
We Trust ourself, weak & sinful as we are, to that unchanging love.”
We can have confidence in our Lord because of His unchanging ways.
We will always experience trials in life, things that change, collapse,
unexpected disappointments of individual decline, but He will never be moved.
God’s purposes & promises change not,
therefore our faith may rest on Him…
God does not turn from His love,
nor cancel His promises,
nor alter His purposes of mercy
