How often does a rock move or change it’s shape? Not the little pebbles you put at the bottom of a fish tank, but the giant boulders the forest. How often do they change their shape or get up and move to a different spot? Never.
“I The Lord do not change . . . Ever since the time of your ancestors you have turned away from my decrees and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you,” says The Lord Almighty.
– Malachi 3:6-7
Often times I feel as though I shouldn’t struggle with the idea of God being faithful and a constant in my life, but I do. And when I delve into scriptures, I often wonder how I could. Just by looking at the Old Testament, we are presented with example after example of our God always being there for his people.
Every good and perfect thing is from above, coming down from the Father of of the heavenly lights, who does not change as the shifting shadows.
God’ s character remains the same, no matter when it it is. God is no more present at the beloved late-night singing than he is at impromptu game of flag football. Because he is always faithful, and he is always by our side walking with us through our journey of life.
The cliche of God being our rock couldn’t be more true because like that giant boulder in the forest, our God does not change. He stays the same always. Always. He will never change because he is the same today, tomorrow, and forever. And he has been the same since he created the earth.
