Choose Life (Forty Four)

God Has Not Changed
Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?  
― John 5:5-6, NKJV
We continue this week with the story of the sick man healed at the Pool of Bethesda. [John 5:1-15].

I boldly, without any contradiction nor exception, declare, "GOD HAS NOT CHANGED!" He never will. And, He is not planning to.
"'God has not Changed!' He never will. And, He is not planning to."
If He healed yesterday, He is healing today and will heal tomorrow. If He prospered people yesterday, He is prospering people today, and will tomorrow. If He broke people out yesterday, He is breaking people out today and will tomorrow. If He made the barren give birth yesterday, He is making the barren give birth today, and will tomorrow. If he gave people their mate yesterday, He is giving people their mates today, and will tomorrow. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. [Hebrews 13:8; Romans 8:32; Luke 1:37; Matthew 19:26] He changeth not!

Our stories will not, your story cannot define God. God is God all by Himself. Our own little, microscopic experience of life cannot change, nor define Him. If your story is not matching up to Him, guess who moved? It surely is not God. “You moved, not God.” If you are not getting the blessings, guess where the short circuit might be from? You are right. He is the unchanging changer of all things, constant in His person and principles. [Isaiah 40:8; Malachi 3:6; Numbers 23:19; 1 Samuel 15:29; Psalm 102:25-27; James 1:17; Lamentations 3:22-24; Isaiah 40:28-31; Psalm 90:2, 18:2, 62:2, 6; Deuteronomy 32:4] He has no cause to change, for He is the absolute against which every other thing is measured and takes its root and bearing.

"He is the unchanging changer of all things, constant in His person and principles."

We need to allow God’s person to define our lives. That is the essence of seeking, beginning to look for the areas where you might have a misalignment. Beginning to look for the areas where you might need to make shifts and adjustments. It is stopping the digging and beginning to find our way out of the hole.

So, where do you stand? Are you digging your foot in the ground, and building a monument around your stance? Or, are you willing to draw near to life? Are you willing to draw near to God? Are you willing to make the shifts and adjustments to get and walk in the fullness of what the Father has for you? Will you come back home today, so He can make you?

The Father has been looking out for you. [Luke 15:20]

Please, come home, and receive of His fullness. Will you?
