    Promises of God, Part I: Here’s Why You Should Trust God!

    Today I’m starting a new series on the promises of God! We know the Bible holds many promises from Him, but what are they?

    Some we can easily identify, like the rainbow–we know this is God’s promise that He will never destroy the earth with a flood again (Gen. 9:11-17). It’s important for us to know the promises of God because they affect our faith and help us grow in our understanding of who God is.

    There are other, less obvious promises in the Bible and today we’re going to start with an awesome promise from God and about God.

    ‘For I, the Lord, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed’ (Malachi 3:6).

    The promise of God is that He doesn’t change. Everything changes–seasons, people, styles, time, even language. But God doesn’t change.

    Why is this promise important to us? Well, something that can make it difficult to trust people is the knowledge that everything changes. Maybe you’ve told someone a secret and they promised not to tell anyone, but something changes for them and they decide to tell another friend. Change can make trust difficult.

    This promise of God can impact our ability to trust Him. If we really let that sink in to our hearts, it will open up a whole new level of trust in our relationships with God. He never changes, which means God is always trustworthy no matter what the situation. God’s love for us never changes; He’ll never love us more and He’ll never love us less.

    Another reason this promise is important is because of our emotions. Often we “feel” like God isn’t with us or we “feel” like we can’t fully trust God to take care of the things we’re struggling with. Our emotions change constantly, but this promise of God means God doesn’t change no matter how we might “feel.” Our emotions don’t affect God’s basic nature. This is great news because how I feel changes all the time!

    I wanted to kickoff this series with this promise because it means every other promise of God in the Bible is true, secure and everlasting. God will never leave us or let us down. In a world that is constantly changing, especially at the pace the world is changing now, God’s unchanging nature is very reassuring.

    How will you let God’s unchanging nature affect your relationship with Him?

    Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
