We are taking a look at four things that will never change no matter how simple or challenging a life change may be. We saw that in the midst of change, God never changes and that God’s Word never changes. Now we will take a look at a third thing that never changes.
In the midst of change, God’s plans never change.
1 Samuel 15:29 says, “…for He is not a man that He should change His mind.” The Psalmist wrote, “The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of His heart from generation to generation.” Psalm 33:11
God’s plans do not change because they do not have to change. They do not have to change because of the following: God is omniscient or all-knowing. He is omnipresent or ever-present. He is omnipotent or all-powerful. He is sovereign.
Why do our plans change? Proverbs 19:21 states that “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but the counsel of the Lord, it will stand.” Our plans change because we don’t have the perspective and we don’t have the power.
Our church family looked to property for ten years. We look at hundreds of sites. We put bids in on several pieces of properties. We purchased one parcel, drew up plans, submitted drawings and then sold it. But all of our plans failed to materialize. They kept changing. But, we knew one thing: God had a plan for us and His plan was never off track.
It gave us great comfort to know that in the midst of our plans constantly changing, God had a plan that was rock-solid.
In the midst of change, God’s love never changes.
In Romans 8:38-39, Paul states, “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
The Bible says that NOTHING can separate us from the love of God.
When we look at the list of things that cannot separate us from the love of God, we notice that the list is all-inconclusive. It covers everything. It is God’s way of saying that His love for us never changes.
So in the midst of life changes, remember that God Himself, God’s Word, God’s plans and God’s love will never change.
