The same yesterday, today, and tomorrow

“I am the Lord, and I do not change. That is why you descendants of Jacob are not already destroyed. Ever since the days of your ancestors, you have scorned my decrees and failed to obey them. Now return to me, and I will return to you,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. Malachi 3:6-7

Having an understanding that your faith is founded upon God who never changes is very important. From the text, God made this declaration; “I am the Lord, and I do not change” (Malachi 3:6). Even before God had spoken of the universe into its beginning, He remained the same. “In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundation of the earth and made the heavens with your hands... you are always the same; you will live forever” (Hebrews 1:10, 12). This foundational truth is very important if our goal as children of God is to live lives pleasing to Him that result in fruitful Christian living. If our understanding of God’s character is flawed because we think that God is just like us unstable and acts upon whims and capriciousness, our faith to Him will be useless. How can you know that He will answer your prayer if He constantly changes His mind? Serving as well will be pointless because you do not know if He is pleased or glorified. How about the promise of eternal life; will a God that keeps on changing will pull through to the end and keep His commitment to those that trusted Him as Lord and Savior? If we believe in a God that is inconsistent, our Christian life will be frustrating and miserable. This is why the Israelites has to come into realization that the One true God will never change. This meant that His judgment and disposition will always be constant. He will not find pleasure in His children that continues to show their disobedience to Him. Our loving Father will not violate His character and His justice by tolerating our disobedience. Yet, despite the fact that God will not condone our disobedience, He remains faithful and longs for His children to return to Him and repent. “The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent” (2 Peter 3:5). It is important that we know whom we believe and have entrusted our lives with. Know whom you serve. Having the right knowledge and understanding of who God is will help you recognize His purposes and ways. If the God as revealed in His word the object of your faith you can be rest assured that He will never change. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). As you place your life to the Lord Jesus Christ, you will realize that the One to whom you place your trust and your life is always the same loving Father. This will result to a joyful and rewarding journey with Him.
