He Never Changes

Samuel Smith



People age, flowers fade, kingdoms rise and fall, governments rise to power and fall aside, wastes decay, seasons change but God forever remains the same. He is immutable and unchangeable. God is not a newborn—He neither grows up nor grows old. God Himself said; "For I am the Lord, I do not change" (Malachi 3:6). Before the world was formed He was God, after the world had been formed He was God, He is God now, and will be God for eternity.

There was never a time God did not exist, neither will there be a time He'll not exist—He is the Rock of Ages. The beauty of Eve grew old but God remained the same. The strength of Samson was lost, but God remained the same. The wisdom of Solomon wavered, but God remained the same. The King of Pop came and is gone, but the King of Kings lives forever. Alexander the Great lived and died, but the years of the Almighty God have no end. He neither faints nor grows weary. He never suffers from mood swings—God will not be kind to you today and be indifferent to you tomorrow.

He's forever faithful, trustworthy, good, and compassionate. No wonder Thomas Chisholm wrote; "Thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not; as thou hast been thou forever wilt be." Don't worry about what the future holds when God holds your hand. He is your Stronghold in the time of trouble. He shall comfort you and His peace shall overtake you! No matter how uncertain your life seems, what is certain is that God loves you. "God [Jesus Christ] is the same yesterday and today and forever" (Hebrews 13:8). He is always good and kind. Your happiness and exaltation is guaranteed with Him (Isaiah 40:31; James 1:17). God loves you!
