Daily Insight for November 24, 2018
“God is not a man, so he does not lie.
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
We can one hundred percent count on God. The reason is God is not a man. God does not lie. He is not human and therefore He does not change his mind. If He promised He keep His word no matter what happens.
People have difficulty in believing and trusting God’s promises because they have seen people makes promises and breaks them. We see violations of promises all around us. However, remember God is not a man. He is not human. Therefore He does not change His mind or alter His promises and words. You can bank on it.
Bible asks this question. Has God ever spoken and failed to act? Has He ever promised and not carried it through? It is rhetorical question demanding a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer. No, He never has. Whatever He has spoken, He acted. Whatever He promised, He faithfully carried it through. The hundreds of fulfilled prophecies in the Bible are the proof of the faithfulness and trustworthiness of God. Joshua testified this in Joshua 21:45 after they reached the promised land. He said, “Not a single one of all the good promises the LORD had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true.”
Beloved, when everything turns around you on a constant basis, you need something in your life that never changes. That is God and His promises. We have unpredictable parents, spouses, friends, relatives, and even co-believers. We have unpredictable weather. We have unforeseen events of life. However, in the midst of all these unpredictability, we have God, His word- the Bible and His promises as the anchor of our souls, to keep us safe from the dangerous winds and tides.
Dear ones, “Even in your faithlessness, He remains faithful because He can not disown Himself.” (2 Timothy 2:13).
Got a moment for today’s prayer? “Father in heaven, I come to you and I place my trust and believe on you. I know all changes around me in a constant basis. But I know your word and promises never changes. I know you sent your son, Jesus Christ, for all of my sins. I accept Him as my savior and Lord. Save me and bless me today with your wonderful words and promises. In Christ’s name I pray. Amen.”
