“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 fulfil?”
My mind goes though these words and this amazing promise! I would say that not so much about the promise – which is great anyway – but I am thinking around the human attitude. The man represents the human not the male.
Humans lie; humans change their mind; humans say words – wonderful ones – but they do not act upon them; they promise but they do not execute!
Does it sound familiar? I am confident that YES! In fact, it is not a familiar situation that happened to each of us but a condition that we have apply as well! Let’s be honest: we are humans and have our weaknesses.
The good news is that we have a choice to decide how we will act: lie or truth? Keep our word? Keep our promise? Or change our mind? Who determines how we act?
Even better news is that even if others do not practice what we expect from them, at least, we can understand…as we did similar acts ourselves. The most encouraging is that there is a God who is honest, He keeps His promises and acts upon them, He fulfils what He says and He never changes His mind!
So essential to know what He has promised us, to listen His voice and know that we know! Amen!
