God does not change

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadowsJames 1:17

The topic of the post on the blog ‘Christian thought for the day’ is about immutability of God. God does not change! He is probably the only being in the universe that has never changed. All of us undergo various changes. We change our opinions, beliefs, attitudes and etc. It’s us people. If we change from bad to good, it is very well, but if we go from bad to worse there is nothing good about it. We have to accept God type of thoughts in order to become like He is. His thoughts and words give stability for us and enable us to develop God type of character.

The knowledge about immutability of God allows us to build our faith on a solid ground. If he changed His thoughts daily we could never be sure what He is like and what can come to His mind and whether He would say one thing one day and a completely different thing another day. That would be hypocrisy and God is not a hypocrite. We usually are! We need to get rid of our compromises and look more to God in order to become such as He is. 

The good news about Him being immutable is that He is good and all good things come from Him. He is holy, but He is also good. When you are able to combine these two things you will have a healthy balance in life and have good chances of becoming a strong and stable personality. If you accept God’s thoughts you become like Him. I hope you see what I mean. God bless you.
