The One Who Changes Not

DSC_2130

As my blog reader are aware, there have been several changes in my life recently – finishing school, leaving home and starting university, going to a new church… the list could probably go on, and in more detail too! In the midst of any change, it is always so good to be reminded of the One Who changes not – God.

I am the Lord, I change not.  (Malachi 3:6)

It is well for us that, amidst all the alterations and vicissitudes of life—that there is One whom change cannot affect; One whose heart can never alter—and on whose brow mutability can make no furrows. All other things have changed—all other things are changing. The sun itself grows dim with age. The world is waxing old—the heavens and earth must soon pass away and perish!

There is One alone, who has immortality—of whose years there is no end, and in whose person there is no change. The delight which the mariner feels, when, after having been tossed about for many a day, he steps again upon the solid shore—is the satisfaction of a Christian when, amidst all the changes of this troublous life, he rests the foot of his faith upon this truth, “I am the Lord—and I do not change!” The stability which the anchor gives the ship when it has at last obtained a hold-fast, is like that which the Christian’s hope affords him when it fixes itself upon this glorious truth.

“With Him there is no variation!” Whatever His attributes were of old—they are now! His power, His wisdom, His justice, His truth, are alike unchanged.

He has ever been the refuge of His people, their stronghold in the day of trouble—and He is their sure Helper still.

He is unchanged in His love. He has loved His people with “an everlasting love!” He loves them now as much as ever He did—and when all earthly things shall have melted in the last conflagration, His love will still wear the dew of its youth. Precious is the assurance that our God never changes! The wheel of providence revolves—but its axle is eternal love!

– Charles Spurgeon, Morning and Evening

      Hi Mallory,
      Thank you for your comment, and for nominating me for the awards. It was very sweet of you. :) While I would like to take part, at the same time, I must confess that my life is currently very full, so I don’t know when I will actually manage to get round to doing the posts. But if your happy to accept that it may be a little while before I actually post them, I am happy to do it!

      Blessings,
      Anna
