Feb 19 Devotion: The Character Of God (HIS Immutability)


Hebrews 6:17-20 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: [18] That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: [19] Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; [20] Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

Isaiah 40:13, 18 Who hath directed the Spirit of the Lord, or being his counsellor hath taught him? [18] To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?

Definition: IMMUTABLE/IMMUTABILITY = Unchangeableness; the quality that renders change or alteration impossible; invariableness. Immutability is an attribute of God.

Today we will look at my very favorite attiribute and part of God’s character…HIS IMMUTABILITY! As I attempt to describe the GREAT GOD OF HEAVEN, and HIS GLORY, please forgive me ahead of time. There is NO way with my human finite and feeble mind, that I could even begin to scratch the surface on how BIG, how WONDERFUL and POWERFUL, our great God is. So for the next few minutes, I am humbled and honored that I have this great privilege. With Gods help, let me do my best to describe to you and lift up Jesus, my Friend, my Savior, my King, and Creator of this Universe!

As we see in the Scripture above in Isaiah 40:13,18, there is no one like HIM! There never has been and never will be anyone we can even compare to the God of Glory! God has always been. There has never been a time when HE wasn’t, because HE just IS! In scripture God has many names. If we were to break down the meaning of all the names given to HIM, and exhaust the depth of HIS character, the world could NOT contain it! Hallelujah! My dear friend, if you want to see the absolute highest rendering of God’s character, please look closely with me at the Scripture and the definition above. God’s IMMUTABILITY, declares that it is impossible for HIM to change! HE cannot be altered, and there is NO VARIANCE in HIM! HE is sure and steadfast, just like HIS name FAITHFUL AND TRUE! As the world around us changes, HE is a constant foundation of TRUTH! Though men try to change and corrupt HIS Word, though compromisers try and bring the world into the church, and worship; God remains the same, HOLY! It is this quality that makes GOD….GOD! In a world of instability and chaos, the Lord is our hope and anchor! When all the earthly kings and presidents, and all the good men have come and gone, THERE HE IS! HE still reigns and sits on HIS Throne. The ETERNAL and EVERLASTING, THE MOST HIGH GOD!

If you ask a group of people what God is like, you will receive many different answers. Some will say HE is a force somewhere in the cosmos, to others God is just the man upstairs. Most of the time, the description given will reveal more about the speaker than about the real Jehovah. God is ETERNAL—HE has no beginning or end. HE is the same yesterday, today, and forever. No one created HIM; God simply is. That’s hard for us, as HIS creation to understand, but if the Lord were completely explainable, HE would be like us and unworthy of worship. It’s my prayer for you today that you would give the ONE TRUE AND LIVING GOD the honor HE deserves, that you would know HIM as HE really is—ETERNAL and UNCHANGING!
