THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: God is the one thing that will never change

For centuries, incredible changes have taken place in the world in different ways!

We see great changes in areas of communication, travelling and entertainment. The world has become a global village, thanks to mass and social media. The rate of change is so great that we barely catch our breath before another blast of technological change takes place. Everything we’re familiar with is changing. Our world is more subject to change today than it has ever been in human history. Some of the changes create chaos and crises, leaving us wondering whether there is anything that will never change.

Yes, there is one, God never changes, He is the same yesterday, today and for ever. The writer of the hymn “Abide with me” knew about the changes and also knew one who will never change. He wrote: “Change and decay in all around I see; O Thou who changes not, abide with me.”

God is not subject to any changes of cycles of life. His character is completely unchanging and his nature is eternal. God remains faithful always, even when things don’t work out the way we want – “Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. “
