The more things change, the more He stays the same

“I the Lord do not change”

Malachi 3:6

We’re gonna do a little math today.  What’s that property of mathematics that says if A = B and B = C, then A = C?   Okay, I just looked it up; it’s the Transitive Property.  So let’s apply the Transitive Property to God.  He has always been; He will always be.  He does not change.  So whatever He has always been, He will always be.  Have I lost you yet?  No?  Okay, good.

So now let’s put it into tangible terms.  For instance, to Adam and Eve, God was a Creator.  Although we’re too late to see the universe come into being, we can still see Him creating.  Nature, newborns, and even us.  ~ “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17

To Noah, God was a protector.  He will be that for you, too.  ~ “You are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.” ~ Psalm 59:16

For Joseph, God had a plan.  He has one for you, too.  ~ “For I know the plans I have for you… plans to prosper you and not to harm you; plans to give you a hope and a future.” ~ Jeremiah 29:11

To Moses, God was a miracle who could not be explained.  Be amazed. ~ “He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.” ~ Job 5:9

To David, God was forgiveness.  He still forgives. ~ “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.” ~ 1 John 1:9

To Daniel, God was to be worshiped.  He still deserves that.  ~ “Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.” ~ Psalm 100:2

Whatever characteristic of God that you see;  whatever word you could use to describe Him as you read through Scripture, you can expect that of Him now, and in the future.   ~ Merciful ~ Patient ~ Just ~ Provider ~ Majestic ~ Redeemer ~ Truth ~ Wisdom ~ Shepherd ~ and yes…. Forever Unchanging ~
