I’m thankful that God is immutable. An immutable God is one who can be trusted. Because our God is unchanging in both his counsel and his character, the hope we have is an “an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast.” The plans of our immutable God comes to pass and his promises are kept with certainty. He can be counted on to be forever as he is and to do forever what he says. From his steadfast character and standing counsel comes his complete faithfulness.
But this I call to mind,
and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
(Lamentations 3:21-23 ESV)
It’s God’s immutability that stands behind mercies that are “new every morning”—ever fresh mercies from our constantly merciful God.
Now that’s something to be thankful for!
