The Immutability of God is a Blessing

I didn’t know that the book of Malachi contained so many awesome truths aside the famous verse about tithes. Another reason to study the Bible for yourself.
Studying Malachi with my sisters, I came across chapter 3:6 and I couldn’t just pass it by. Let’s talk about it.

“I am the Lord, I change not; therefore, ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” — Malachi 3:6

I have always heard the phrase, “I am the Lord, I change not.” But I never heard anyone quote the second part that says, “Therefore, ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”

Why do we leave that part out?

This part is very imperative because it qualifies and helps us to understand this nature of God and appreciate it better.

I am the Lord, I CHANGE NOT. 



Immutable as defined by Google is, being unchanging over time or unable to be changed.
That is the God we serve, He can NEVER change. His nature and essence are permanent. We wrote a previous post similar to this, check it out. God is a permanent TRUTH. His nature can’t be true today and be a lie tomorrow. He is the same, forever.

This is a beautiful truth and I don’t know about you but I am grateful for God’s immutability.

But do you know what makes God’s immutability even more beautiful?

Because of it, we are not consumed.

Oh, dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I am thankful.

Because Father (God) remains the same, he remains love, I am here today and I have not been consumed by sin. I have not been consumed by my past sins of pornography, masturbation, jealousy, hatred, pride and even the sins that still lurk around in my heart now. Because he remains an everlasting love, I never have to be consumed by fear because his love will always cast out fear. Because he remains my everlasting inheritance and provider, I never worry about being in lack. Because he cannot lie, keeps his promises and covenant, I never have to worry about his word not being fulfilled in my life. I never have to worry about being snatched away from his hand, losing my salvation or spending eternity without him because he is my shepherd and promised me eternity with him.

Oh! if he had changed, we should have been consumed in a dozen ways; if the Lord had changed, you and I should have been consumed by ourselves; for after all, Mr. Self is the worst enemy a Christian has. _ Charles Spurgeon.

Despite my sins and unfaithfulness like other sons of Jacob (Isreal), I grumble, I complain, I forget about his faithfulness, I probably have some idols I don’t even know about, despite all that, I am not consumed because my God is unchangeable and immutable. I am sure all these are true for you too, and I think of these and can’t help but fall to my knees and worship my Father.
Thank you, God, for being immutable.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end, Amen.”

The immutability of God is a blessing yet can be taken for granted. Please, let us endeavor not to take his love for granted. As he is unchangeable in love, he is also unchangeable in being a just God and won’t go back on his threatening to those who are wicked and evil.

“I am the Lord, I change not; therefore, ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” Malachi 3:6

God Bless.
You are Eternally Loved.
