{Hebrews} He Never Changes

Continuing our series, Blown Away By Hebrews

Today I meditated on God’s immutability–the truth that He never changes–as well as His eternal nature and future rule. Hebrews 1:8-9 quote Psalm 45:5-6, which say,

“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. The scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness; you have loved righteousness and hated wickedness. Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”

Here are a few other verses that speak of God’s unchanging and eternal nature.

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8

“For I the LORD do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.” Malachi 3:6

“But you are the same, and your years have no end.” Psalm 102:27

My lesson in Hebrews for today asked the question, “​How does meditating on Christ’s eternal nature, future rule, and  immutability affect your thinking and behavior in a specific area of your life?” Here were my simple answers.

  • It makes me feel small.
  • It gives me broader perspective.
  • It humbles me.
  • It inspires me to redeem the time I have here, knowing that it is fleeting, and but a drop in the ocean compared to God and His eternal nature.
  • It fills me with the hope of Heaven.
  • It comforts me and quells fears about the future and the unknown, knowing that Jesus is forever and He will never change.
  • The security I feel knowing that my Savior does not change encourages me to continue pursuing Him, so that I might in turn be a stable, dependable influence in the lives of my husband and others. The more I go to God for everything I need, the more predictable my responses to life’s happenings will be as I grow in consistently drawing from my relationship with Jesus, Who never changes.

 How do these truths about God’s nature affect your life, outlook, thoughts, or character?
