Was love. And still is.

God’s Unchanging Purpose

For the LORD Almighty has purposed, and who can thwart Him? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back? – Isa 14:27

He is always the same, and everything is always present in His unchanging mind. What was the nature of God when He first determined to deliver me? Was it love? Then it is still love. What was the motive that prompted the Son of God when He came from above and snatched me from the deep waters? It was love, surprising love, and it is surprising love that still moves Him to deliver me. Did I sing about His faithfulness just the other day? That faithfulness is just the same today. Have I adored His wisdom? That wisdom is not depleted. There is not only the same nature in God as there always was, but there is also the same unchanging purpose. You and I shift and change, and we do so because we make rash promises and flawed plans; but God, who is infinitely wise, always holds to His purpose. — Spurgeon
