Titus 1:2 “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began.”
Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”
God is not a liar. He has never told a lie and will never tell a lie because He cannot tell a lie. His eternal nature reveals that He is truthful, faithful and holy. The Bible tells us in Psalms 22:3, “But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.” He is holy and righteous. Again, the Word tells us that He is light (absolute light) and in Him there is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5). God is not both light and darkness; He is light and in Him there is no darkness at all. Glory to His Holy Name!
Therefore, every Word that comes out of His mouth can be trusted and steadfastly relied upon. God is honest and trustworthy. You can count on Him. He is the Truth and His words are truthful. In Numbers 23:19, the Word says, “God is not a man that he should lie; neither the son of man that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” When God says a thing, He performs it. He has never spoken an empty Word; His Word is full of power to make itself good.
God’s Word cannot return to Him void because of the power inherent in it. He is the Almighty God; He is the all-powerful One. He is true to Himself; He cannot deny Himself. Whatever He says is what He will do. He and His Word are organically and inseparably one. Psalms 89:34 tells us “My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.” God’s covenant is steadfast; His Word is reliable. He is faithful in every respect. He is faithful through and through, and to the very end. You have an everlasting rock in His Word. You have found unshifting grounds, an anchor that is reliable in Him. God is a rock.
You can trust God because He cannot lie and His integrity is unshakable. You can depend on Him, entrusting your entire life in His able and faithful hands. Beloved, cease from your struggles and be still, then you will know that He is God. Stay your gaze on Him as you make His Word your focus and priority. He is faithful and holy. There is none like unto our God whose faithfulness reaches unto the clouds and His righteousness is like majestic mountains. Glory to His Name forever!
My Solid Front (Confession): In the Name of Jesus, I put my trust in God by keeping my focus on His Word, being assured of the Holy Scriptures that God cannot lie. Amen.
