How many things can you count on in your life that will never change?
I did a little research and found a short list of things that are unchangeable…
- You can’t change the past.
- A minute will always be 60 seconds.
- The sun will always rise in the east and set in the west.
- And change is inevitable and it isn’t always easy.
I can remember seasons of change in my life that I approached with exuberant anticipation. And I can also remember times when I dealt with life changes through tears and tantrums. So, although change is inevitable . . . the uncertainty of change is often an unsettling and unwelcome part of life.
That is one of the reasons I love the changeless Word of God and the way it shows us the unchanging truth about God and His promises.
Psalm 89 was written by a Temple musician praising God for the promises He made to David’s descendants . . . and it is through those promises, God told us about the eternal reign of David’s descendant, Christ Jesus.
The Lord said, “I have made a covenant with David, my chosen servant.Psalm 89:3–4, 36–37
I have sworn this oath to him:
‘I will establish your descendants as kings forever;
they will sit on your throne from now until eternity.’”
His dynasty will go on forever;
His kingdom will endure as the sun.
It will be as eternal as the moon,
my faithful witness in the sky!”
There’s something else clearly expressed in Psalm 89, and that is the immutability of God. Charles Spurgeon said…
“Consider what you owe to His immutability. Though you have changed a thousand times, He has not changed once.”
The One who created the sun, moon, and stars is the One who created you and me. He is the One who rules the nations and the One who will reign supreme forever and always.
10 Things About God That Will Never Change
Found in Psalm 89
- God’s love is unfailing. (v. 1, 2, 14)
- God is faithful. (v. 1, 2, 5, 8, 24)
- God is unique. There is none like Him. (v. 6)
- God rules and subdues all of creation. (v. 9, 11)
- God is strong and powerful. (v. 13)
- God is righteous, just, and true. (v. 14)

- God is holy and He cannot lie. (v. 35)
- God keeps His promises. (v. 33–34)
- His Kingdom will last forever. (v. 36)
In a world that is ever-changing, there is assurance and a sense of peace in knowing that God is always and forever the same.
Every good action and every perfect gift is from God. These good gifts come down from the Creator of the sun, moon, and stars, who does not change like their shifting shadows.James 1:17 (NCV)
I was going to add here . . . “if you’re in a season of change.”
Then I paused to realize that you and I are always in some kind of changeable season. That’s okay . . . the One who never changes is with us and He promises to give us everything we need.
God has given both His promise and His oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to Him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us.Hebrews 6:18
A Prayer Thanking God for
the Assurance that He Will Never Change
Father, thank You for giving us the assurance that You are the One who spoke the world into being and the One who sits on the throne in the Book of Revelation proclaiming, “Look, I am making everything new!” (Revelation 21:5)
You never have been nor will you ever be limited by time and space. You are all-knowing, all-powerful, and always present. Yet, You love and care so much for Your children that You gave Your only Son to enter the limitations of our world to show us Your love and save us from sin and evil’s power.
Please help me place my complete trust in You . . . especially when I am experiencing uncertain times of change. Help me remember that when I am anxious about the future, You are already there. Please give me the peace that passes understanding and the assurance that You are working for good in my life.
I give myself to You, Lord. I believe that You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. I believe that You keep Your promises. I believe You are good and trustworthy. I believe You are faithful and loving. I believe You are righteous, just, and true. I believe You are who You say You are and that You will forever and always do what You say You will do.
Thank you for allowing me to KNOW, TRUST, and LOVE Your unchanging truth that assures me of Your unchanging love. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. We can count on Him to keep His promises.
In the beginning, was the Word [Jesus], and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were created through Him, and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created.John 1:1–3 (CSB)
Jesus said, “The Father and I are one.”John 10:30
All glory to Him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by shedding His blood for us. He has made us a Kingdom of priests for God His Father. All glory and power to Him forever and ever! Amen.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.”Revelation 1:5b–6, 8
