In pondering the reality of my God who does not change, I am compelled to be grateful. In light of the following Scriptures that speak to God’s immutability, I am freshly overwhelmed by this truth.
“For I the LORD do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.~ Malachi 3:6
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.~ James 1:17
Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but you are the same, and your years have no end.~ Psalm 102:25-27
Pondering these passages naturally compiles me to give thanks and that is what I aim to do. Here is a brief prayer that may stir your heart to do the same.
Father, when everything around me is changing, You O Lord, change not. Once good, you will always be good. Once holy, forever holy. Once you entered into covenant with me, always will you remain in covenant with me. I am wearing out. Four decades in to living and I am on the way out. You wear not. You faint not. You evolve not. You age not. Blessed be Your unchanging name!
