I will delight myself in Thy statutes: I will not forget Thy words. Psalm 119:16
Malachi 3:6 I am the Lord; I change not
"It is well for us that, amidst all the variableness of life, there is One whom change cannot affect. One whose heart can never alter, ...
What ever His attributes were of old, they are n ow; His power, His wisdom, His justice, His truth, are alike unchanged. He has ever been the refuge for people, their stronghold in the day of trouble, and He is their sure Helper still. He is unchanged in His love. He has loved His people with "an everlasting love"; He loves them now as much as ever He did, and when all earthly things shall have melted in the last conflagration, His love will still wear the dew of its youth. Precious is the assurance that He changes not! The wheel of providence revolves, but its axle is eternal love. Death and change are busy ever, man decays, and ages move; but His mercy waneth never; God is wisdom, God is love."
I HEAR THE WORDS OF LOVE (Horatius Bonar, 1861)
I hear the words of love,
I gaze upon the blood,
I see the mighty sacrifice,
And I have peace with God.
'Tis everlasting peace,
Sure as Jehovah's name;
'Tis stable as His steadfast throne,
Forevermore the same.
The clouds may go and come,
And storms may sweep the sky;
This blood-sealed friendship changes not,
The cross is ever nigh.
I change -- He changes not;
The Christ can never die;
His love, not mine, the resting-place;
His truth, not mine, the tie.
My love is oftimes low,
My joy still ebbs and flows;
But peace with Him remains the same,
No change Jehovah knows.
