God is not like people. He tells no lies. He is not like humans. He doesn't change his mind. When he says something, he does it. When he makes a promise, he keeps it”. Numbers 23:19 (God’s Word Translation)
Most of us when we give our word or promise, want to be believed. It says something about our character, that we are people who do what we say we will do. Even as broken human beings, the longing is there to fulfill what we say, even though we are not always able to accomplish it. And if we can’t manage it, or someone does not believe we will try, it can hurt our hearts deeply.
God on the other hand, always keeps His word. If He says something, it is true. If He makes a promise—it is a sure guarantee it will come to pass. He wants you to trust Him, to trust in His nature and character. He never lies; no not once.
You can open your heart today, beloved, to your wonderful promise keeping God. You can count on all the extraordinary promises He wants to make, and keep, specifically and intentionally for you!
Jesus, I ask Your forgiveness for all the times I believed lies about You—You were not there. You did not care.
For all the times I believed lies about myself, based on how I thought I failed, or how others told me I did.
For all the times I shared or spoke things that I knew were not true.
Help me Holy Spirit, to walk in Your truth, to keep my word. To be more like You!
Whatever You say Lord, about Who You are; who I am to You; and who others are as well, I believe. I know You would not lie Lord.
I thank You for Your tender mercies in my life and I trust in You!
