“For I am the Lord, I do not change [but remain faithful to My covenant with you]; that is why you, O sons of Jacob, have not come to an end. Malachi 3:6 AMP
Life is full of changes; nothing remains the same. We begin life as babies but progress comes through growth and change. If a baby remains a baby, then there is a problem. The seasons change; the weather cycle is constantly in motion. A few weeks ago it was summer; now we are in the fall season transitioning into winter. I would love for the weather to remain the way it is until next April; unfortunately, that will not happen because in a few weeks, we will experience change.
In some areas of life, change is a wonderful thing. It’s wonderful to see babies grow and change; the leaves are beautiful as they change in the fall. Although everything we know experiences change; God does not change; He is immutable. God simply cannot change. Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is [eternally changeless, always] the same yesterday and today and forever.” In Malachi 3, God expressed His displeasure with Israel but He did not destroy them because He cannot change the covenant He made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
So God remains faithful to all what He promised He would do. Joshua experienced the faithfulness of God personally. When God called him to lead the people, God told him, “No man will [be able to] stand before you [to oppose you] as long as you live. Just as I was [present] with Moses, so will I be with you; I will not fail you or abandon you.” Joshua 1:5. So Joshua led the people across the Jordan so that they could take hold of the promise God made to their forefathers. God does not change and His promises are sure.
Thought for Today: Friend, you can trust in the God who does not change.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
