One Who Does Not Change

19 God, who is enthroned from of old,
who does not change—
he will hear them and humble them,
because they have no fear of God. Psalm 55:19

How would it be if the Lord changed as cultures and societies change? Societies come and go; nations rise and fall. And so do their cultural fickleness. Think about what is promoted in the public square that would never have been promoted just 40 years ago. It’s actually amusing to see people promoting behaviors that the Bible condemned 4000 years ago. And people say we’ve evolved in our thinking. How arrogant!

As the end of this verse points out, the Lord will hear them all right, but He will certainly humble them as well.

Sometimes, though, we become frustrated that the Lord doesn’t change the way we think He should change. Thankfully He doesn’t nor should we expect Him to lest we too are humbled.

Today, thank God that He doesn’t change. It’s just one of many characteristics that makes Him God.
