Numbers 23:19- 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?
God is faithful and His faithfulness can be found in His commitment to His word.One thing the Lord does not play with is His name. The fourth commandment says You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain , for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain – Exodus 20:7.This shows how much God takes His holy name but for Him to exalt His word above His name according to Psalm 138:2 , that should tell you He will do anything to keep His word. The bible says in Matthew 24:35 that Heaven and Earth will pass away but the word of the Lord will not pass away.
Why is God faithful? because He is not a man.Man is limited in a lot of ways,man changes,man depends on situations ,circumstances and other men, man lies. According to John 4:24, God is a spirit not man. He is unlimited in every way, Luke 1:37 says with Him nothing shall be impossible.Also He is unchangeable ,Malachi 3:6. He depends on nothing, Psalm 62:11 says all power belongs to God. Psalm 33:9 says He spoke and it is done , He commanded and it stood still.
As children of God we are expected to be faithful to our words and promises.Ephesians 5:1 says Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children.
ACTION POINT: Be faithful to your words and keep all your promises.
