Unchanging and Changing

God never changes, but I do. Both of these are good things.

God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow (Hebrews 13:8). He’s the same forever.

His promises are sure. He doesn’t say one thing today and another tomorrow (Numbers 23:19).

He’s not growing and changing. He’s not learning and maturing. He’s not influenced by circumstance.

God is. He is the I am. He is complete. (Exodus 3:14, John 8:58)

He is the Alpha and Omega. He was in the beginning and shall be to the end. (Revelation 21:6)

God never changes.

And then there’s me.

I can’t even get my favorite color sorted out. Sure, there are things I like that I’ve always liked and probably always will like. And there are plenty of days that I don’t really like those things I normally like all that much. I’m malleable.

I change. A lot.

Psalm 119:89
Psalm 119:89 God's Word stands forever.

I’m growing and changing. I learn and mature in him, I’m highly influenced by circumstance.

This is good. My God leads me and teaches me if I let Him. He reveals truth to me when I’m ready for it. I’m not always ready, which is yet one more reason that it’s good that I change. I want to be made ready for all He has for me.

And as for circumstance? It’s a tool in God ‘s hand that He uses to change me — if I’ll let Him.

Change for me is a good thing. I need it. As hard as it is, I want it. I want to be changed.

I want my perfect, unchanging God who sees all and knows all to change me.

Praise be to God that He is unchanging. His light shines.

And praise be to God that I change. I can be growing more like Him all the time.

And praise be to God that He is in me and His light shines because He is, not because of me, but because of Him.
