Malachi 3:6 – “For I am the LORD, I do not change;” NKJV
In violation of my normal policy of not using a portion of Scripture to make a point, I do so here. I do so because I sense in my spirit that it is a needed word for many today. There are times in life when many, if not most of us, wonder if the above statement is true or true in every case but ours.
I know that would fall into the category of “self-pity,” but it is reality. In those times we begin to listen to the voice of the enemy of our souls telling us that we have done too much, violated God’s plan, principles, precepts, or laws, and have been abandoned by God. In our hearts we know it is a lie but if the situation persists long enough, we sometimes begin to listen and if we ever listen to the diabolical one, we are in trouble spiritually. It opens the door to doubt, fear, and even reaction or action that leads us away from God and into the trap of the devil.
I am convinced that it would be a good thing to daily remind ourselves of the truth listed in the above verse that God Does Not Change! We know that everything around us changes but God is the one constant in all existence that is absolutely constant! He is Love and that Never changes. He is Grace and that Never changes. He is our Healer and that Never changes. He is our Provider and that Never changes. He is Everything That We Need and that Never Changes! He is the “I AM THAT I AM.” Therefore, no matter what you need HE IS. No matter what struggle you face, are facing, or will face, He is the Solution! He Does Not Change!
His Word is absolutely sure! He never lies or misrepresents anything! He never distorts, twists, or confuses His children! We become confused, distort what He has said, and twist His words but He did not do that, we did. The reason we did is either because we listened to the devil, or we listened to our own selfish desires. Either way, we stray from His designed path and to the ultimate victory, He has prepared.
As a human being, no matter how hard I try, I will fail. I wish that were not true, but I have proven it too many times in my life. That is not an excuse or even a feeble attempt at justification it is a fact. I need Him more and more every day and so do you. The one thing in life I am absolutely 100% sure of is that God Does Not Change!
In that truth, I am also confident that “He is able to keep that which I have committed to Him against that day.” I am also confident that “He will never leave me nor forsake me and will be with me to the end of the world.” I am confident that He has ascended to the Right Hand of the Father to make intercession for me and is or has prepared a place for me to spend eternity with Him and will return for me one day. It does not matter if that is via the natural process of physical death or through His supernatural appearance to take me home. It does not matter I know that it is a fact and Does Not Change!
Therefore, no matter what struggle you are facing today know that you have a loving God that “Does Not Change.” He is touched by the feeling of your infirmities and is fully aware of your situation and cares and in His time and in His way, He will say Enough, and complete and total victory will be yours! Whatever you do – Do Not Cast Away Your Confidence in Him!
May God bless you as you go through your day and week in Jesus!
