Tag Archive: unchanging nature


Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of His purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, He confirmed it with an oath. God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged. – (Hebrews 6:17-18, NIV)

 

God wanted to prove that His promise was true. He wanted to prove this to those who would get what He promised. He wanted them to understand clearly that His purposes never change. So God said something would happen, and He proved what He said by adding an oath. These two things cannot change: God cannot lie when He says something, and He cannot lie when He makes an oath. So these two things are a great help to us who have come to God for safety. They encourage us to hold on to the hope that is ours. – (Hebrews 6:17-18, ERV)

 

If God says it, He does it. Who He is, will not change. We can trust God to be true to both His nature and His word. Our hope is secure forever in Him. May we grasp the truth that we are sons and daughters – heirs of God – called His children, promised both His presence now and a permanent place dwelling with Him forever, in Heaven. Because He does not change, neither should our hold on hope.

 

True to His word,The Unchanging Nature of God

His promises true;

He will not change,

nor lie unto you.

He is safe space,

to Whom we can run;

our hope to hold,

’til our day is done.

Heaven awaits,

for the faithful ones;

those who choose trust,

as daughters and sons.

Rise up in hope,

children of the King;

may our lives be,

pleasing offerings.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You do not change and that You keep Your promises forever. Thank You that You are a space of safety whom we can run to, and are faithful and worthy of all of our trust. Thank You that not only do You forgive and redeem us, but You adopt us as sons and daughters; heirs of Your holy inheritance. Thank You that when we choose to place our trust in You, our hope is secured in Heaven forever. Forgive us for our faltering faith, and for our lack of trust. Teach us to see things through Your lens, so that we might have an eternal perspective, recognizing that You will have the final say in all things. Help us to live our lives in love as You so lavishly love us. May many come to know the peace of Your promises as we pursue Your path for our lives. Be glorified in all that we say and do, and may our lives be a pleasing offering unto You. Amen.

You have made known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence. – Acts 2:28

Peace and hope are held secure as we come to understand that God and His promises are unchanging and trustworthy, because He alone, is unchanging and trustworthy.  We can rest assured that He will remain the same, yesterday, today and forever.  What He says He will do, will surely be done, for He is not a mere man that changes His mind.

For us, this is a most remarkable gift.  We need not do anything to earn His love, for He loves His created so much, that He willingly laid down His life, so that we would have the option to come to know Him personally.  All that is asked of us, is that we believe and receive that which has already been given.  In exchange, we find hope, which is the anchor for our soul, firm and secure. (Romans 6:19a)

A gift’s been given,Hold Hope 1

spoken through His word;

our promise for peace,

hope that we have heard.

For God is the same,

past, present and post;

faithful, ever true,

Dad, Son, Holy Ghost.

His love never ends,

His promises true;

our Beacon of Hope,

Safe Place to renew.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are faithful and unchanging – true to Your word and steadfast in character.  Thank You that we can come to You and know that what You have promised, You will do, and who You say You are, is true.  Thank You that every good and perfect gift comes from You – our hope, our peace, our rest.  Forgive us for confusing Your character with that of man, that You might change Your mind because we somehow didn’t do enough.  Help us to trust You completely, even when things appear far from the fulfillment.  Thank You that You are always near.  Help us to embrace Your grace so that we may go forth and give as we have been given.  May many come to know You as we live and love as You call us to do.  Let our lives be light and life to those who are without hope.  Be glorified, Lord God.  Amen.
