Not A Liar

"God is not a man, that he should lie,
nor a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?" Numbers 23:19

"a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time," Titus 1:2

As I've been going through and talking about some of the promises of God, I thought that it might be appropriate to look at a few verses that talk a little more about the character of God. You will notice that both of these verses say the same thing- He does not lie. When you first read these, it's like, oh, okay, God doesn't lie. But then when you really think on it. God doesn't lie! Ever! Which means all those promises, all those notes and letters in the Bible are true and pure. When God says he loves us, he means it! When God says he wants to take our hurts away, he means it! When he says that he is preparing a wonderful place for us, he means it! We have a wonderful God who will never, ever turn his back on us and will always be there watchin gus and walking with us through life. Wow. What a great God!

This morning I was so thankful for His promise that He won't leave us and He will give us strength to do what He calls us to do. How grateful I am that our God is faithful and never does anything to change His character...He is always true!

Claire, I hope the exams and studying isn't getting you down. ((hugs)). You come to my mind a lot when I'm praying, so know that I'm sending them up on your behalf. :-)
