You can try but you cannot change it! That is the idea behind the “block chain.” It is a digital ledger that is designed so that transactions made with bit coin and other cryptocurrency are meddle-proof and unable to be deleted. The block chain is an accounting method that verifies transactions and creates a record that cannot be changed. Because everything is unique and traceable, it cannot be copied. Because this system is “immutable”, it generates trust and truth.
Today’s verse tells us that God does not change. He is “immutable” and this attribute also generates trust and truth! His character is irrevocable. Who He was in times long past is who He still is today! He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb.13:8). He does not need to change, grow, mature or self-correct because He is perfect. His Word and promises are binding and permanent! He hears the cries of the righteous because He has promised and He will humble those who have no fear of God, because He has promised.
I never have to worry that God will change His mind about me. I never have to doubt His unfailing love that does not change. He has promised His presence for “always, even to the end of the age.” (Matt. 28:20) I do not have to question whether He is going to show up or not! The fact that He does not change strengthens my trust in Him. How relieved I am that I do not have a God who is capricious and unpredictable! He is my solid, immoveable and immutable rock and I can trust Him completely.
Lord, strengthen my trust in You today.
