“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” (Hebrews 13:8)
We live in a world of change. People and things are constantly changing. However, even though we are surrounded by an ever-changing environment, God never changes. Actually, we can’t even talk of what God “has been” or what God “will be” because HE IS. To say that God is unchanging is to say that He never differs from Himself.
Because God cannot change, His promises cannot change. Because God cannot change, His purposes cannot change. Because God cannot change, His provisions cannot change. Because God cannot change, His personality cannot change. Because God cannot change, His Word cannot change. Because God cannot change, WE must change.
How can you change? In what ways do you see God moving you into position for change?
Spend some time today and ask Him how He would have you change. “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 3:18)
Father, Your ways are so much higher than mine, Your thoughts higher than mine . . . You change not . . . so in order for me to become more like You, I must change! Help me, Lord, to be as clay in the Potter’s Hand . . . moldable, transformable, and changeable! Help me change, O Lord, to be like You, to glorify You, and to be what You want me to be! Amen!
“For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” (Malachi 3:6)
