One of the most calming and reassuring statements in the Word of God is found in our key verse, “For I am the LORD, I change not.”
A. W. Tozer points out that God cannot change, for all change must be in one of three directions: 1) from better to worse, 2) from worse to better, and 3) from one order of being to another. God’s perfection rules out all three of these possibilities. God changes not!!
“The law of mutation,” writes Tozer, “belongs to a fallen world, but God is immutable, and in Him men of faith find at last eternal permanence.”
In coming to God we need not wonder whether we will find Him in a receptive mood. He is always receptive to misery and need, as well as love and faith. He does not keep office hours, nor does He set aside periods when He will see no one. Neither does He change His mind about anything. Today, this moment, He feels toward each of us, toward babies, the sick, the fallen, and the sinful exactly as He did when He sent His only begotten Son into the world to die for all mankind.
Tozer also says, “God never changes moods or cools off in His affections or loses enthusiasm.” “For I am the LORD, I change not.”
