The unchanging nature of God gives me peace and assurance because I know that He is not erratic or given to emotional behavior. He is forever the same (Hebrews 13:8). I know that when I come to Him in repentance, He will hear me and honor His Word. He will forgive me and restore me to fellowship with Him. He will not be cranky one day and say, “I don’t feel like forgiving you today, or go away.” I know that His Word stands forever and that He is no respecter of men as Romans 2:11 assures me. Therefore, whatever station in life I am in He will perform His Word. He is forever of old and His love and generosity, made manifest by the sacrifice of His Son, is ever available and ever new for all who come to Him. As I am coming to know Him in relationship more and more, I have the confidence of knowing a dear friend, whom I can trust because He is ever the same.
