God never changes
Read: Hebrews 6:17
“To those who were to receive what He promised, God wanted to make it very clear that He would never change His purpose; so He added His vow to the promise”
Although God will never change His overarching plans and purposes, Scripture passages abound that show how God sometimes alters His plans on a limited basis in response to our faith and actions.
For example, He reverses His judgment because of sincere repentance of sinners, such as when the city of Nineveh believed God and repented so that God withheld judgment. At other times, He responds to the needs of human beings or the fervent prayer of the righteous, as illustrated by the parable Jesus told about the widow who persistently pled with the judge for justice. This is one of the mysteries of God’s nature.
We know that God never changes, and yet He relates to us and gives us our free will. When we pray and ask Him to intervene in our lives, He does so—when it is in line with His will. He works through us as we walk and talk with Him.
So I encourage you to take comfort in the fact that God never changes; but realize that when we seek His face, we can expect Him to respond to our prayers.
Where do you need God to intervene in your life or even in your community today? How will He be glorified by answering your prayer? Pray in humility, understanding that God is the sovereign God who sees the entire picture.
May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
