…the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
If you’re worried about anything at all today, let me introduce you to the subject of the immutability of God. What do we mean when we say something is “immutable”? It means it’s not capable of mutating. In other words, it is not possible for it to change. If something is immutable, it is unchanging and unchangeable. What could that be? Nothing that is part of this world. Everything in the universe is subject to change. Certainly you and I are changing. Our children are changing. Our society is changing. And even the most durable elements of our natural world and in our universe are changing.
But Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever; the Alpha and Omega. The Lord says, “I am who I am” (Exodus 3:19). Malachi 3:6 says, “I am the LORD, I do not change.” In Christ we have a rock of stability. We have a Friend whose word will never go out of style. We have a Savior who is as dependable now as He was two thousand years ago.
In times of instability, focus on God’s immutability.
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not; as Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.
