Why We Can Confidently Trust God’s Promises

  • One of the greatest truths of our great God is His unchanging nature.
  • While other gods are capricious and changeable, the true God of the universe, the God of Scripture, is unchanging and ultimately trustworthy.
  • In Malachi 3:6 God declares, “I the Lord do not change.”
  • In Numbers 23:19 we are told, “God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind.”
  • In James 1:17 we are assured that God “does not change like shifting shadows.”
  • What all of these biblical truths mean for us is that God’s word is reliable. We can trust his promises. We have reason to hope in his faithfulness.
  • The next time you’re facing doubt, discouragement, or a trial in life, remember, trust in the Lord with all your heart (Proverbs 3:5-6). You can count on his faithfulness because he does not change.
