His character does not change! He stays the same. He is the same God that walked with Adam and Eve in the Garden. He is the same God that spoke to Moses at Sinai. He is the same God that heard, and answered, Hannah's prayer. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever! (Heb. 13:8) No, He does not change His mind. No, He does not change His opinion. The remainder of the verse contains a clue:
"For I am the LORD, I do not change; therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob."
He is (and always has been) merciful.
He is (and always has been) full of grace.
He is (and always has been) LOVE!
I like Numbers 23:19--
"God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?"
