Betrayal does not mean Denial

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.

You’re not prone to misfortune

Verse of the Day 
‘May the LORD, the God of your fathers, increase you a thousand-fold more than you are and bless you, just as He has promised you! [NASB] Deuteronomy 1:11
….
Isn’t it amazing to know that God has made a #promise concerning our lives, and whether we like it or not, whether we think it might happen or not happen, regardless of how long it appears we’ve been waiting for it, even when we go through our phases of belief and unbelief; #God is still faithful in bringing His promises to pass in our lives! And He can be trusted. Let that sink deep into our consciousness, and we will finally see that all that has happened in our lives have the designs of the master planner written all over it! You’re not alone and you’re not prone to misfortune.

Verse of the Day

I will give you every place on which you set foot, as I promised Moses. [GWT] Joshua 1:3

….

God says everywhere you set your foot on, He will give to you. It’s a promise, it’s a commitment. When God makes a commitment to bless you, be rest assured that He will not let it pass unfulfilled. He never forgets his promise. What promises has God made to you? Do you want to climb the career ladder in your workplace? Do you want to own the property where you’ve been staying, or renting for your business? Is there a high brow area you’ve been visiting that you would like to have as your postcode? The Lord says He can give it to you. Question is do you believe? #Question: If you believe God can, what are you currently doing in your life that confirms this knowledge; or how does the knowledge impact your daily life? And if you don’t think He would/could, what is stopping you from believing and what would you do differently if you did expect God to keep his promises? #JoshuaChallenge
