An Unchanging God {Thankful Thursdays}

I don’t know about you, but I don’t like change. I like the security of my comfort zone because most of time it's Unchanging. That comfort zone is like my favorite fuzzy blanket I use during the winter - comfortable, safe, and secure. I was reminded of this, this week while dealing with our internet company and their new “state of the art” services that will be provided in the near future. My husband pointed out to them those wonderful new changes are in fact regressing to the early days of DSL services for other parts of the country, but that’s life living in the middle of nowhere.

I couldn’t help but think how things in life may change, our God doesn’t. We serve an Unchanging God.
We serve an Unchanging God. While uncomfortable changes are made every day in our lives, there is ONE who does not change. frogslilypad.net

We Serve An Unchanging God


It’s reassuring to know the same God that David and Daniel prayed to, I pray to Him also. The same God, who directed Noah, protected Jonah, prepared Moses, and guided Joseph. He is the same today as He was the day He hung the stars in the sky. (Psalms 102:25-27)

It’s a comfort to know the God I serve is the same God who promised Adam and Eve while in the Garden of Eden to send a sacrificial Lamb. He’s the same God who sent his Son to be born for a purpose – to die on the cross and to be raised from the dead for our sins. (Genesis 3:15)

I have hope in knowing the promise of peace and the return of Jesus that was given to his disciples, is the same Jesus I sing about when the words Jesus Loves Me passes across my tongue. (John 14:1-4)

While uncomfortable changes are made every day in our lives, there is ONE who does not change. I’m thankful I serve an unchanging God.
Time is filled with swift transition,
Naught of earth unmoved can stand,
Build your hopes on things eternal,
Hold to God’s unchanging hand.

  1. Lori, I couldn't agree more! It seems especially in the world we live in now, things change so quickly. I often feel overwhelmed and have whined to my husband, "I just don't want to learn anything new!" lol! I love learning, but the constant technological changes that effect our everyday lives is overload. I always admire the way my 85-year-old dad keeps up with most of it! It makes the fact that our God is never changing, even more so a comfort. I love this thought before I head off to sleep to night. Thank you, friend, for these sweet thoughts!

  2. Hi Lori, coincidentally, I had a conversation with someone 2 days back. I told him how we are in a constantly changing world and unfortunately we also try to change God's standard to please ourselves!
    He is forever and ever the same, never changing and always true.
    God Bless, friend

  3. I'm SO with you, Lori. I am not a fan of change, and I'm not good at it. Thank you for the fresh reminder that we serve an unchanging God! I cling to the truth that any change He affects in me or brings to my life is always for my good and His glory. Thank you for being such a gracious hostess!

  7. Hello, Lori. This is my first time linking up. Thank you for giving us this great opportunity. I love your pretty site. I enjoyed learning how you got your name for it, too.
    What you said about the God that David and Daniel prayed to, I pray to Him also, IS so reassuring. I hadn't quite thought about it that way. Thank you.

  11. Thanks, Horace, we're doing our best at keeping warm. Thankfully the arctic air is not settling in for longer than a couple days. It gets rough after a week of -30 and -40 degrees.
