"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." James 1:17

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

This is the last post I will do on change for awhile.

Yes, you could say that I am going to "change" the subject.

While you and I deal with change constantly, God never changes.

Change is a way of life for us, but He have never changed. Hebrews 13:8 says He never will.

While God sends circumstances, pain and pressure to cause us to change He is unchangeable.

Does that seem right?

There is a very good reason why we regularly are challenged with change and God isn't. God is perfect and you're not.

How can you improve on perfect? It can't be done!

The concept of perfect means flawless and complete. Perfect means pure.God always has been and always will be perfect. He can't get better and He won't diminish so there is no need for Him to change.

God's desire is to shape you and change you to be more like Him! He wants to perfect you to resemble the image of Christ. That requires a lot of changes!

So, how does this affect your understanding of change? How does it affect your attitude toward it?
