10 Terrific Things About God That Will Never Change

| | |

Sharing is caring!

In a world that is constantly changing it is comforting to know that you and I can trust the One who never changes. He is the same yesterday, today. and forever. He is our assurance and peace.

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.
    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!” 

Psalm 89:3–4, 36–37

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.

Here are…

10 Things About God That Will Never Change
Found in Psalm 89

  1. God’s love is unfailing. (v. 1, 2, 14)
  2. God is faithful. (v. 1, 2, 5, 8, 24)
  3. God is unique. There is none like Him. (v. 6)
  4. God rules and subdues all of creation. (v. 9, 11)
  5. God is strong and powerful. (v. 13)
  6. God is righteous, just, and true. (v. 14)
  7. God protects His people. (v. 22–23)
  8. God is holy and He cannot lie. (v. 35)
  9. God keeps His promises. (v. 33–34)
  10. 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
In a world that is constantly changing it is comforting to know that you and I can trust the One who never changes. He is the same yesterday, today. and forever. He is our assurance and peace.

Let’s pray…

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.

In a world that is constantly changing it is comforting to know that you and I can trust the One who never changes. He is the same yesterday, today. and forever. He is our assurance and peace.

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. We can count on Him to keep His promises.

John wrote…

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

May God bless you and help you live with confidence that He will never change.

    Good afternoon Deb
    Thank you for your messages.I am filled with joy and blessed reading your posts.The LORD bless you and family.”Yes indeed if we,”Delight ourselves in the LORD,He will grant us the desires of our heart”Psalm 37:4.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement, Mariemuthoo. I am so glad you are joining us. God be with you and bless you!

  2. Praise God for His unchanging nature and His incomparable truths! Such peace is found in knowing our Lord will always keep His promises.
    Blessings, Deb!

    1. I agree, Martha. Knowing and trusting His unchanging love and the forever truth of His promises are the source of His hard to explain peace. Blessings, my friend!

  3. How grateful I am for you, Deb, and all of the Biblical wisdom you share and how you explain it in a way that is understandable. This week I have shed many tears, but your posts have brought peace and comfort to my aching heart. Good days, bad days! But, I know that deep down, no matter what, ALL days are good, because God is in charge and He knows the outcome of all things. I am so thankful He is unchanging!
    I am grateful that I can read your posts and read the responses of your followers and see the love of Christ in all of them.
    Change gets harder for me the older I get. Like you, there was a time that I did look to some changes with great anticipation. Now, it does frighten me more than I look forward to it. I am just so thankful that God is a God who never changes. The ten points you gave are for me to ponder. I can find comfort in those. I also thank you for your compassion and your understanding. I am also grateful for the friendship (long distance) with Kathy that has developed from this as well. You have a wonderful way of validating us and making us feel good about ourselves. You do so much for all of us and I hope that you know how much we ALL appreciate you!! God bless you! You sure do bless us!

    1. Kathy Francescon says:

      Oh my dear friend Sue, it breaks my heart to hear you have been shedding tears. That made me want to cry. I am so very sorry for whatever has caused your tears to fall. I am sorry i haven’t texted lately. Things get unexpectedly crazy, going along with Deb’s wonderful post, that things are always changing, except God! Oh dear friend, I hope your trip to the Smokey Mtns. was a fun time. I thought of you all that week and prayed you were enjoying refreshing peace and joy! Now to hear about your tears, makes me so sad. I wish I could be there to hold you and comfort you. But just as Deb’s words assures us, God and His love and care for you never changes. He is right there with you this moment and He has caught each one of your tears in His loving hands. I am reminded of the old Christian hymn, “Hold to God’s Unchanging Hand.” I know God will carry you through this heart break, through all your heart aches, and will bless your heart and your face, to smile again soon! Please know my heart is with you and I am praying for you this moment. I am sending you all my love and a thousand hugs of comfort and healing and understanding. We all love you and right here for you. You are such a beautiful blessing to me and to all of us whom shares in Deb’s comforting and insightful ministry. Psalm 30:5 …weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Psalm 126:5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
      God is with you, and so am I. You are so loved and so treasured my precious friend.

      1. Kathy, Thank you so much for your compassion and your prayers. You can’t know how much that means to me. I know that you are going through so much too. I do hope that things are settling down some with Vic.
        You know that I have you in my prayers as well.
        The trip to the mountains was wonderful and very peaceful and fun. My younger brother and his wife and great grand children (two special needs children) met us for lunch one of the days. They were on the way home from Gaitlenburg from their vacation. It was good to spend time with them and those precious little ones.
        My tears come and go right now. Some times things that happen can trigger a reminder of what is going on. Children can be a parents greatest joy or they can bring a lot of heartache. Right now and for some time, it is heartache. I gave up something that was left to me to try to avoid this. But that didn’t seem to matter. Money and such doesn’t mean that much to me. Relationship does. I have found out that when it comes to money, some people value that more than relationship. The irony of it all is that I lost out all the way around! No relationship and I gave up my inheritance.
        God always has and always will provide for me. I have never done without. Maybe at times I didn’t have some of the things I wanted but I never did without the things that I needed. God is so generous with his blessings.
        I will get through this. I just ask God everyday to give me the strength to keep going. It hurts so much to be rejected! It is what it is. And, I have to go through it. It is just as I said, some times things that happen will trigger the emotion and the tears will flow. Tears are part of the healing process. This situation is going to take divine intervention to be rectified. And, I know it is all in God’s hands. I think of Paul of the Bible and how God gave him the thorn in his side and it stayed. This can make me better or bitter. I choose Better!! Bringing me into a closer relationship with God ! I love the two verses you quoted to me. They are two of my favorites. I am not familiar with the song, but I am going to look it up. You are such a dear to me and to all who write in to Deb. I am so grateful for you. Truly.
        Much love to you and God’s blessings to you. I am sending a hug to you as well. Love you, my friend.

      2. Once again I say thank you, Kathy. I appreciate the prayers and the love and friendship. This will work out. I am sure of it. God has it in his hands and He knows what is best. He also knows me and my character.
        You are so sweet and kind. You show your Christianity in all you do and in the way you do it.
        Love hugs to you!

    2. I’m so sorry to hear that this has been another hard week of heartache, Sue. My aunt used to say, “Growing old ain’t for sissies!” Rev and I smile and say it often. It’s not just the physical change challenges but I think experience gives us more understanding about life in general and emotional pain can be as difficult as physical pain. I’m so glad you are blessed and encouraged by your visits here. You all bless me so very much. Your faith, prayers, and friendship bless my faith and bring joy to my heart. I’m praying for you, sweet friend, and asking the Lord to bring comfort and joy into your life. Blessings and hugs!

      1. Deb, thank you! I am so grateful for you and your encouragement. You have had this same issue and I know that you can understand how painful it can be. As I told Kathy, children can be your greatest joy or biggest heartache. This situation has really had a hard effect on me and my emotions. I have good days, but something can happen and trigger the emotions again. Rejection by anyone is not pleasant, but with family it is even worse. The thing I hold onto is God’s faithfulness. I just ask Him everyday to help me get through this and help strengthen me. I am old and you are right, emotional pain can be as difficult as physical pain.
        This situation is going to take divine intervention. And, God, I know is letting this happen for a reason. I tell you, it sure has brought me into a closer relationship with Him. He has really been there for me in so many situations and I can count on him and his faithfulness. You and Rev are right when you repeat what your aunt said about “gettin old ain’t for sissies!” I am grateful that you feel blessed by the things I say to you. I mean every word and my heart is sincere. Prayers for you and the Rev. are being said on a regular basis. You are such a blessing to me and to everyone who reads your wisdom. I treasure the friendship we have through this wonderful blog. God just seems to know where to direct us.
        I thank you again and I know that you understand. I appreciate that so much. May God bless you and Rev. today and always. Love and hugs to you too, my sweet friend.

        1. Sue, I continue to pray for you. Yes, the pain of a child’s rejection is heartbreaking. And we grieve because even if it’s temporary, it feels like the death of the way we thought things would be. Remember that grieving takes time. God is walking this journey with you and He will continue to hold you close and give you strength. He is catching your tears in a bottle (Psalm 56:8) and He will heal your heart. Know that you continue to have our prayers, dear friend.

  4. Kathy Francescon says:

    Sweet Deb, again you have comforted my heart with the assurance that God is the only constant of our lives, no matter all the moment to moment changes that afflict us! Indeed we all have beautiful and wonderful changes and yet, some are so painful and so hard to bear. But the Great “I Am” says it all! Blessings and prayers for you and Rev, are always in my heart…and God’s Unchanging Hand will hold you both forever.

    1. Oh, Kathy. I’m so glad this assured and comforted you this morning. Your words to me and to the others in this group bless me more that you know. And Rev and I are so very thankful for every one of your prayers. Blessings and hugs, my friend!
