Before the mountains were born, before the seas were created, He is God – from everlasting to everlasting. He is unchangeable. He is holy, just, merciful, compassionate, the everlasting Father who exist from one eternity to another.
In today’s text, let’s look at Isaiah 46:3-4:
“Listen to me, you descendants of Jacob, all the remnant of the people of Israel, you whom I have upheld since your birth, and have carried since you were born. Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”
Right here, God reminded His people that from womb to cradle, from infancy to old age, His love and tender mercies for them will remain. Unlike human parents whose degree of care and love for their children diminishes over time as they grow older into manhood, God’s love and care for His people is unchanging: as endless as the sky, as pervasive as the oceans.
From the day they were conceived in the womb to the day that they were born to this world, to the day that they are old and gray, they are assured of God’s care and His provision. Like a loving father or a caring nurse, He will carry them in His everlasting arms, and rescue them from calamity. He will watch over them. Knowing all these – that’s a lot of comfort for us.
God is unchangeable. What He said, He will do; what He promised, He will accomplish. The world will change. National borders and maps will change. The climate will change. Priorities will change. Man’s heart will change. But God’s love for His people never changes. It is unchangeable. Everlasting. Endless.
God’s love never fails and God’s people will always be the object of His love and affection.
