Difficult To Turn Off (Numbers 23:19)

“In February, I was heli-skiing in Whistler!”

“Dude, this summer, I’ll be hiking to Machu Picchu!”

I was in earshot of two salespeople relaxing in a hotel restaurant. Wearing ID badges, I was familiar with their respective companies which were known rivals. They had spent an entire day at the convention held in the same hotel, speaking to hundreds of different professionals and attempting to sell their product lines by outperforming the other. Now, in a time of supposed relaxation and off the clock, they were still at it.

Almost by definition, salespeople are extroverts. Bubbly, effusive, engaging-this is a personality trait that is difficult to turn off. Thus, when salespeople come together in a social setting, it is interesting to witness each of them still jockey for the superior position, attempting to regale each other with their latest social conquests.  Even when not selling to prospective clients, their personalities shine through. 

What about God? God’s personality and character are fully revealed in His Son, Jesus Christ. The four Gospels present different views of Jesus Christ. Matthew presents Jesus as the Messiah and King of the Jews. Mark presents Jesus as the Suffering Servant. Luke presents Jesus as the Son of Man and emphasizes His humanity. John presents Jesus as the Son of God. Four different views. Is this the same God?

God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through? 

Numbers 23:19 (NLT)

Unchanging, unyielding, and unrelenting. God’s personality never changes. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

It is impossible to turn Him off!

Love and trust in the Lord; seek His will in your life.
