We have all said, heard, or read at one time in our Christian life that God is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore. Have you ever stopped to think about that? It is not just something we say, hear, or read, it is who God is by His own definition. In Malachi 3:6 God says, “For I the Lord do not change.” He is unchanging in His being, His perfections, His purposes, and His promises. This is such a hard thing to understand because we constantly change. Think about it, since you started reading this, you changed and got older. God never gets older.
If we went outside and looked up we would see the sun. If we stood there long enough in the day, we would see change as the light would become dark. If we continued to stay there we would see change again as it gets light out again. The truth is the sun didn’t change, the things around it did. I remind myself of this and it helps me to understand some things in life. Circumstances and life may constantly be changing, but God never changes. I love that our God never changes and is the one constant in our daily life.
The world changes, people change, circumstances change, but God is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore.
Ask yourself this question, how does God always remaining the same help you to go through the circumstances of this life?
