Verse of the day
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?[ NLT] Numbers 23:19
Many of the reasons why many of us don’t receive the full promise of God is maybe because we often bring Him to the level of men by our thinking. Because we were once victims of abuse, betrayal, broken promises and lies and many lies at the hands of men, when faced with having to wait for the fulfilment of God’s promise on that desired goal, we give up on the promise because we think it won’t happen due to our previous experiences suffered at hands of people; thereby equating God to man. Just because you have been betrayed by people does not mean that God is going to do the same, that maybe that long awaited dream is taking so long to find fulfilment in your life because God changed his mind. God can be trusted you know, we are reminded here that He is not a man that is susceptible to changing his mind, lying and breaking promises. God is not like that. He can be trusted, He can be relied upon, and He NEVER fails to act on your behalf. He will do exactly what He’s told you in His book that He will do for you. That desired/promised change may be taken longer than it should, but that doesn’t mean that the delay is because He’s forgotten or that He’s changed His mind concerning you. Have faith, God is still at work on your behalf.
