Five Ways God Never Changes
Harvest. To reap. A gathering of crops. A verb and a noun. When I think of harvesting, I think of gathering and taking. I think of the plants who worked so hard for the past season to grow, nurture, and mature the fruit. Suddenly, its time to let go. Harvest is a season of change. A season from going to sparse to plenty. From having nothing to having everything.
I don’t live in a culture determined by harvest. Yet, I know what its like to go from a season of scarcity to a season of plenty. I know all to well the opposite as well. To have so much, only to find the next day it is all gone. I might not have grown up around fields of crops or plantations, but I have plants in my window. I see them grow, bloom a flower, then the flower fades. The cycle of it, the picture of life we find from seeds, soil, and sun are not lost on even me.
In the next few weeks I want to take you on a journey of harvest. It is something I’ve been thinking a lot about, as we contemplate some big decisions as a family. For me harvest begins with change. Harvest revolves around the revolution of the earth and the sun. The change of seasons is something I always love. All of these posts will be focused on some type of aspect of change. Join me, as we learn about the God who orchestrates change, but never changes.
Isn’t that what this Christian walk is about: learning to trust God, no matter what He allows or directs to come into our lives? How my faith will be strengthen through truth from His word. How hard it is to trust during seasons of change!? Today I want to give you these truths from God’s Word about God’s un-changing nature. Here are five ways God never changes.
1. God will always be with us.
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Deut. 31:6
2. The Holy Spirit will always intercede for us.
That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Hebrews 6:18-19
3. The Father will never be anything but all good.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17
4. God always speaks truth.
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Numbers 23:19
5. God will always be faithful.
This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:21-23
Are you in a season of change? Let me know in the comments below. I promise to pray over each one! God sees us friend, in all of our busyness, He will still be with us and calm our worry-filled hearts.
