While at camp, I was drawn to the fact that God is unchanging! Most people we want to change. Not God!
If you have been unfaithful to someone they may very well turn on you and remove their presence from you, not able to trust you again, or at least not choosing to trust you again. I remember many years ago sharing something in confidence with someone about a person I was dealing with. That confidence was broken, and the person I was seeking to help would no longer deal with me because of the way that they were treated, and I would no longer trust the person I had shared with who was in authority because of what they had done. I tried to, but there was no remorse and a wall was up. It is so unfortunate to see how trust can be broken and relationships fail. If there had been a change of heart things could have been different. As created beings, fallen ones at that, there is a desperate need for change of hearts.
However with God, that is a different story. There is no need for change. And I am thankful that because He is God, He can not change. The faithful One can not become unfaithful.
2 Timothy 2:13 (NIV)
13 if we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself.
If he is Truth, which He is, He can not lie.
Titus 1:2 (NIV)
2 a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time,
God is all Powerful, nothing is too hard for Him.
He is All present, nothing can contain Him.
He is All knowing, nothing can block Him out of our minds.
He is Eternal, nothing can kill Him.
He is Gracious, nothing can prevent Him from sharing His abounding grace.
He is Just, nothing can keep Him from taking care of sin.
He is Holy, nothing can make Him be unholy.
He is…………, nothing can…………
He is LOVE, praise God that nothing can separate me from that LOVE!
Romans 8:37-39 (NIV)
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Aren’t you glad He doesn’t change?!
Praising Him today!
