THE IMMUTABILITY OF GOD OUR CREATOR

For I am the Lord, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.” Malachi 3:6

“For I am the LORD, I change not.” The word ‘immutable’ means that God cannot change. God’s attributes and character are always the same. His holy and righteous nature does not change with time. He hates evil but loves and appreciates holiness. Because of His unchanging nature, we can approach Him with confidence. Both the Old and New Testaments reveal that God’s nature and attributes are constant. He is still the same God of grace and judgment.

While He is merciful to those who fear Him and delight in keeping His word, His wrath and judgment is sure for those who dishonour Him, make light of His word and revel in sin.
“I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me forever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed”. – 1 Samuel 2:30

That God cannot change does not mean that He will not forgive the sinner or backslider who genuinely repents of his sin and returns to Him; neither does it mean that He will continue to be merciful and gracious to those who flout His commandments. He is the God of mercy and justice. “Forever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89).

Prayer: Father, thank you Lord for your immutable character which guarantees my fruitfulness. Help me to walk humbly before you forever in Jesus name.
