He stays the same through the ages.

Malachi 3:6

For I the LORD do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.

If God varied as we do – if He willed one thing today and another tomorrow – if He were controlled by impulse, who could confide in Him?  But all praise to His glorious name, He is ever the same.  His purpose is fixed, His will is stable, His word is sure. Here then is a Rock on which we may fix our feet while the mighty torrent is sweeping away everything around us.  The permanence of God’s character guarantees the fulfillment of His promises.  ’For the mountains shall depart and the hills be removed but my kindness will not depart from thee neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed,’ says the Lord that has mercy on you.” AW Pink – The Attributes of God

Praise the Lord that He is unchanging… if not we would maybe live in fear that He would draw back the gift of salvation at any time, we couldn’t trust his word, and we wouldn’t have confidence or find rest in him.

As humans our lives are experiencing constant change. Relationships change, attitudes change, our age changes, seasons change…but through all this we can take rest and find peace in an unchanging God who does stay the same through the ages. No matter how unstable we may be, God is the ultimate sustainer. His purposes are fast and his promises are secure.
