S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?
These are the words of Balaam, the prophet who had gone against the will of God to follow the desires of Balak, King of Moab. God judged him so that future generations would refer to this prophet’s sin as the “Sin of Balaam.” But the truth is, Balaam was not allowed to curse the people of Israel. God would not let him. One of the directives God gave Balaam to give to King Balak was, “Our God Cannot Lie!”
How does that one promise impact you and me? I believe it helps us remember that every promise in the Bible is for you and me personally. If God said it, He will do it. If He said He is the God that heals us, then we must believe that promise is for you and me. If He said, “I am your provider,” then whatever you and I need, we must believe our God will supply our needs. If He said He has come to bind up the broken-hearted and set the captives free, then we must believe He will do that for you and me if we need Him to. As much as that false prophet Balaam wanted to curse Israel and call our God a liar, he couldn’t do it. Why? Because “Our God Cannot Lie!”
I’m so grateful that You are a man of your word. I’m thankful this AM that You cannot lie. That’s why, today, all of my hope is in You alone. Amen
