Places in the Bible where it is clearly stated or suggested that God changed His mind concerning something He had done or decided to.

Example from the book of Exodus chapter 32 where the children of Israelite rebelled against God by calving an idol for themselves to worship led by Aaron. I believe they chose not to remember the mighty power of the God that brought them out of Egypt. This makes God so angry that He told Moses He was going to destroy them all according to Exodus chapter 32 verses 9 and 10. Then Moses pleaded and intercede on their behalf as said in verses 11, 12, and 13, “So the Lord changed his mind about the terrible disaster He had threatened to bring on His people” (Exodus 32:14(NLT).

The Lord also changed His mind in the case of King Hezekiah’s. In the book of 2kings chapter twenty. Prophet Isaiah son of Amos gave this message to Hezekiah, “This is what the Lord says: Set your affairs in order for you are going to die, you will not recover from this illness. When Hezekiah heard this, he turned his face to the wall and Prayed to the Lord” 2Kings 1, 2. Then as written in verses 4,5 and 6, the Lord changed His mind after King Hezekiah prayed. Hezekiah did not die as said by God, but God healed him and added 15more years for him to live.

In the book of Jonah, the Lord told Jonah to go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim His judgment against it because He has seen how wicked the people are. From the day Jonah entered the city, he made the announcement by God, 40 days from now Nineveh will be destroyed but when the people of Nineveh heard, they repented and prayed to God, God changed His mind and forgive them. He couldn’t destroy the city again as said.

These are but few scriptures were God changed His mind because they are against His nature. God changed His mind because He is a Father of Love. His nature is Love. I didn’t see were God changed his mind to do evil, but love. Even Jonah testify about the unchanging God and His love nature, that was why he initially disobeyed by refusing not going to the City of Nineveh because He knows who God is, God will change His mind because of His nature “love” He is Unchangeable God that does good.
According to the above examples, the children of Israelite, King Hezekiah and the City of Nineveh…..just portray God’s Nature; which is Love towards everyone.

The unchanging nature of God is evidently seen in the Bible. In the Old Testament, God says, “I the Lord do not change” (Malachi 3:6). It is also said in New Testament that God is “The Father of the Heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” (James 1:17). God is immutable, it is impossible for His character or being to undergo any mutation. His power cannot be improved or diminished. He cannot be anything other than perfectly Holy. God our Father remains ever the same. He is the same yesterday and today and for ever (Hebrew 13:8)Hallelujah.
