Attributes of God

Lesson 4

God is Immutable


The perfection of God by which He is devoid of all change in essence, attributes, consciousness, will, and promises. No change is possible in God, because all change must be to better or worse, and God is absolute perfection. No cause for change in God exists, either in Himself or outside of Him.


Perfection means perfection. There is no reason for God to change because there is no change that would make Him better. However, man should be striving to be found complete and perfect in God's eyes.

Scripture Support:

Psalm 102:27
But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

James 1:17
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Malachi 3:6
For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Hebrews 6:17 & 18
Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us.


There is no reason for God to change. When something is perfect it is best to leave it alone and avoid causing it to lose it's perfection.


When things are going bad I won't blame God, asking why He has changed and doesn't seem to be living up to His promises. Since He doesn't change, I will look at my life and see where I have deviated from the path He wants me to follow. I will change my direction toward the right way and follow Him.
