God Does Not Change

Read

Psalm 90:2

Reflect

Psalm 90:2 does not simply teach that God exists from eternity throughout eternity; it teaches that God is God from eternity throughout eternity. This means that God has always been God and that He will always be God. God does not change.

All life on Earth has a beginning and a process of growth. Plants produce seeds, and seeds germinate. The seedlings grow and develop over time, until they produce their own seed: then they die. Animals and humans are like them: they are born, they mature, they reproduce, and then they die.

God, however, does not change: He did not evolve into divinity, He did not gradually become God, He did not develop his powers, nor did He undergo a path of enlightenment. The Bible does not support such views.

What God reveals about Himself in the Bible is that He is immutable: “I am the LORD, I change not” (Malachi 3:6, KJV), and this does not only apply to His nature, but also to His character.

God has always been God, and He will always be God. His nature and His character do not change: He remains the same forever (see Psalm 102:25-27).

Ponder

How have you changed over time? How do you think you will have changed fifty years from now?

How do scientists think the Earth, the Solar System, the Milky Way Galaxy, and the universe have changed over time? According to them, how will these eventually cease to be?

Why is it important for us to realize and believe that God does not change? How does this doctrine increase our faith in Him and our motivation to worship Him?

Pray

Lord, I recognize and believe that you do not change. You are God for all eternity, and I accept you in my heart and honor you as such with my life. How great you are! I recognize that I am a finite being, a mortal being: but you, Lord live forever! My faith and my trust are placed in you.

God Is Eternal

Read

Psalm 90:2.

Reflect

God created the heavens, the earth, the oceans, and every living creature in them, including human beings. God created the stars, the galaxies, the universe, and all reality. Even time is God’s creation.

God existed long before He created any of them, and God will continue to exist long after they are gone: for there never was a time when God did not exist, nor will there ever be a time when God does not exist. God exists from eternity unto eternity.

God is eternal. For this reason, time is relative to Him: a thousand years are to Him like a day, or even like a fraction of a night. God is not subject to time.

Ponder

  • Why should God’s eternity cause us to feel awe before Him?
  • Why should God’s eternity motivate us to trust in God?
  • Does it make sense to believe that God had not beginning?

Pray

Lord, I am filled with fear and wonder when I reflect that you are eternal. I am not eternal, and nothing in nature is eternal; but you, Lord, are eternal (you alone!). I praise you for who you are, and I humble myself before you to worship you. I am encouraged to put my trust in you, who lives forever.
