The Constant One: Our Lord Never Changes


The Lion Loosed

“I the LORD do not change.” Malachi 3:6 (NIV)
“Remember this, fix it in mind, take it to heart, you rebels. Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please. Isaiah 46:8-10 (NIV)


The Lesson Learned

There is something beautiful about consistency in general that is reassuring and comforting, Amen? We can set our hopes upon what we know to be true consistently. We like the known. We can count on the known. We all enjoy faithfulness in others – those who are who they really are - all the time. Standing firm in what they know to be true. Yet, as flawed flesh – as we all are - we can often let others down by not walking in this consistent manner – unlike our Lord Who never changed like shifting shadows.
Indeed, our Lord changes not and His compassions they fail not. Blessedly, He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. We can take His Word to the proverbial bank of our own choosing. What He says He will bring about, what He plans, that He will most assuredly do. He never vacillates. He remains faithful to His promises and loving toward all He has made. We never find Him confused. Perfectly the same He remains. Confusion and disorder is Satan’s handiwork not God’s. He is Sovereign, He is always on His throne, and He is in total control. Hallelujah!  
Not only is He in control, He thankfully is righteous, loving, merciful and kind to all He has made. Hence, He allowed His Son to come and take every sin of ours – past, present and future - upon His perfect body and be crucified on the cross making a way for those who would believe in the Lord Jesus to be with Him forever. Our sins had prevented our fellowship with Him. Now when He looks upon the believer in Jesus He sees the righteousness of Christ – amazing. Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:21 (NIV): “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” The great Apostle urges his readers then to be reconciled to God through the blood of His Son. I am reminded of Aslan’s words written by C.S. Lewis “‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.”

Heart Savor

The Lion Roars

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:28-31 (NIV)

  • We are never to be lacking in zeal but keep our spiritual fervor serving the Lord.
  • We are to be zealous for the Lord’s great Name – through His power for His glory.
  • Create in me a pure heart and a steadfast spirit Oh Lord.
