Lesson # 4
GOD DOESN’T CHANGE
It is important to know God doesn’t change. Why? Because if He were to change once in a while you might conclude that possibly God NO LONGER wants to heal. You could think, Okay, Jesus is the exact expression of the will of God, and Jesus healed all who came to Him, but how do I know God hasn’t changed over the centuries. After all, I have changed over the years, and so have the people I know. Maybe God has changed also and no longer wants to heal.
We have our moods, up today, down tomorrow. We mature, change opinions, and are affected by those around us. But does God change?
One who is perfect has no need to change, does not change, cannot change. God declares (Malachi 3:6), “For I am the Lord, I DO NOT CHANGE.” James wrote (James 1:17), “the Father of lights, with whom is NO VARIATION.” The Bible declares that Jesus is “THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER.”
Since it was God’s will to heal two thousand years ago, and since God does not change, we can safely conclude it is the will of God to heal today. That should be an abundance of encouragement for those afflicted.
