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
I’ve had a few let downs lately. People who have said something and then didn’t follow through. Once in a while if that happens, you understand. Life can get in the way for all of us. But when it happens repeatedly, when a lifestyle pattern seems to develop, that gets harder to take.
It erodes your trust in that person.
How can you trust someone who doesn’t keep their word?
As I pondered these situations and prayed for the various individuals involved, a thought suddenly caught my attention.
You know, God’s not like that.
Do we really appreciate that truth?Do we really live our lives like we believe it?
God never breaks a promise. God never says something that doesn’t come to pass. God is a God of His Word.
How would my life be different if I really believed that? Actively trusted that? Lived out of that?
That truth extinguishes fear, quenches worry, and squelches doubt.
Whenever any problem comes- any diagnosis, any failure, any challenge- God’s promises hold true.
I am with you.
I will never leave you or forsake you.
My grace is sufficient for you.If God is for me, who can be against me?
This truth doesn’t mean I’m guaranteed what I want. Nor does it promise the result will be comfortable and easy.
It does mean that God’s answer will manifest in His timing and is guaranteed to be the best solution.
Pause to reflect on this truth this week.God keeps His Word.
He is not a man that he could change or lie.
God keeps His Word.
Let it change your perspective, your thoughts, and your actions today.
