Knowing God – Chapter 7

In this chapter, Packer begins to discuss the attributes of God of which he starts with God’s immutability. It seems that Packer wants to remind this generation of Christians that the relevance of God and knowing Him is not based on our own thinking of feelings about Him but is based on God’s unchanging character. Packer reminds us that God’s faithfulness and love stays the same regardless of time, space, or circumstance. We may change in our attitudes, behaviour, and actions toward God but He will always be the same yesterday, today, and forever. This brings much comfort to  me as I reflect on how powerless we are when we deal with life’s issues may it be small everyday inconveniences or great tragedies that shock the world. No matter what may go wrong and how we stray from Him, God remains as the great “I am” who is “slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.”
