TOPIC: GOD IS NOT A MAN TO LIE
SCRIPTURE: 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? Numbers 23:19
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God is too truthful to lie, too reliable to reverse, too dependable to deceive and too faithful to fail.
Lies and deceits are major elements of the decadent and fast degenerating system of the world. Most systems of the world are built on lies, deceits and falsehoods. We live in a generation where what most people say may appear true but are actually lies. Many business transactions and day-to-day activities of some people are based on falsehood or falsification of certain information.
However, it is important to know that we serve a God who is not a man to lie. Unlike man, God is too truthful to lie, too reliable to reverse, too dependable to deceive and too faithful to fail. Our God is a lie-less God. The lielessness of God also means the faithfulness of God.
Now, how do you experience the lie-less-ness of God? In other words, how do you see the manifestation of the truthfulness or faithfulness of God in your life? (Psalms 18:25).
1. Be Sincere with God
If you want to experience the sincerity of God, you must be sincere with Him. You must be dependable; let God be able to know and predict you (Psalm 18:25).
2. Be Authentic as a Christian
Being authentic means refusal to be hypocritical. There are many fake people today. Do not be fake. Let people see the authenticity of God in your personal life even if they hate you.
3. Be Truthful in Word
Do not say things that you don’t mean. To develop a high level of faith is to be a man of your words. You are truthful when you make promises and keep them.
My counsel is, mean what you say and always say what you mean; be authentic and sincere, both to God and to man.
Remember this: God is too truthful to lie, too reliable to reverse, too dependable to deceive and too faithful to fail.
1. Make up your mind to be sincere with God.
2. Be an authentic Christian in word and in action.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You forgive any area of lies, falsehood and deceit in my life. I receive the grace to be sincere, authentic and truthful in Word and in action, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
