God Never Changes!
Adventure 2: The Greatness of God
Does the LORD ever give up, get tired, or change in any way?
No. The LORD is unchanging, eternally great in every way. Malachi 3:6a – "For I am the LORD, I do not change."
This Truth Makes
If we believed that God changed His mind like we change our minds, then our confidence in Him would be very small. How could you trust someone who changed his mind about the way he felt about you?
Believing that God changed His mind about us based on our performance of Christian duties would shake our faith. Why? If our beliefs about God and His character are based in ourselves, that is a very shaky foundation. We change! Through His Word, the unchangeable God has shown us what is right to believe about Him. God and all of His characteristics stay true whether you believe rightly or not, or whether you do right or not.
Some people say that you need to “believe in yourself” or “trust yourself.” But think about how often you change your mind. Can you remember something that you changed your mind about? Perhaps it was liking a food or a friend – but the fact is, you have changed your mind. Aren’t you glad that God did not have to decide this morning whether or not He loved you? God never changes!
