Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. - Isaiah 40:28 NIV
Our everlasting God is the same yesterday, today and forever.
We can rest in God because He and His character and purposes are everlasting. He is never-changing. His faithfulness and truth endures forever. He is the alpha and the omega.
Because God’s character is permanent, His salvation plan is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. All the promises of God have been fulfilled. And because God is I AM, the everlasting God, He will also keep the rest of His promises. That leaves us hope-filled and joyous. How can we be this blessed? Because God’s mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting.
“Nothing can alter the character of God. In the course of a human life, tastes and outlook and temper may change radically: a kind, equable man may turn bitter and crotchety: a man of good-will may grow cynical and callous. But nothing of this sort happens to the Creator. He never becomes less truthful, or merciful, or just, or good, than He used to be.”
- J.J. Packer
Have a blessed day!
