BCL Grow: Immutability of God — Malachi 3:6
Malachi 3:6 (God)
For I the LORD do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed. — Malachi 3:6
“He who hath not being from another, cannot but be always what he is: God is the first Being, an independent Being; he was not produced of himself, or of any other, but by nature always hath been, and, therefore, cannot by himself, or by any other, be changed from what he is in his own nature.” - Stephen Charnock, The Existence and Attributes of God, Vol. 1, pg. 319.
Steps to Take
1. Ponder: What does it mean that God is unchangeable; how does this truth about God’s nature bring comfort and peace to you?
2. Remember: The immutability of God means he keeps his promises. His love and mercy and compassion never fail; he remains constant and unwavering. Our hope is in him.
3. Rejoice: Nothing we do or say can change God’s promises to us in our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus. Being rooted in his divine nature, God’s unchangeableness grounds our assurance that nothing can separate us from his love. Rejoice in God who graciously lavishes on us every good and perfect gift.
