Quick reminder, in case you forgot or were doubting – YOU CAN TRUST GOD!
Sure, that’s easier said than done, but it’s true!
So, how do we genuinely gain the confidence to trust in God through challenges?
The Bible says there is NOTHING impossible for those who believe.
The word impossible carries a lot of weight! Nothing can stop God.
So, when we think we are incapable or don’t see a way forward, know that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE for God and YOU when you believe.
The Bible tells us this multiple times.
Hebrews 11:6 says, “…without faith, it is impossible to please God.”
Another verse tells us that “God can’t lie.”
Not only will God not lie, but He also can’t lie. It’s impossible!
That gives a whole other depth and meaning to that verse.
Why is it impossible for Him to lie?
It goes against His character. God is a faithful God—one who is loyal. A person who is considered loyal and faithful in today’s day is someone who is considered trustworthy.
Tell me, would you consider someone trustworthy who lies all the time? Better yet, it’s hard for someone to even trust someone after lying one time. It’s hard to trust if that person would be faithful to do what they say the next time because it causes doubt to enter your mind.
God could not call Himself faithful or tell us to trust in Him if He lied. It would go against His character, causing us to doubt His character. The Bible says, “He is unchanging.”
So, if He was faithful, then He is faithful now.
God has always shown Himself faithful, giving us no chance to doubt Him.
We have no excuse or reason to!
Proverbs 12:12 and 6:16-17 tells that God hates lying.
Lying is considered evil in His eyes, which is understandable because the root is deception, and we know who the Bible refers to as a deceiver – The Devil.
John 8:44 tells us that lying is not the language of our Father but of the devil.
Our God is a just God who partakes in no evil.
If God commanded us not to lie, what makes you think He would lie?
Some of us have a hard time trusting in God’s promises, but if we really understood that God could not lie, we would see he is faithful to fulfill His promise, and we would not doubt.
To doubt God’s promises in a way is to consider Him a liar! Ah!
We doubt because we compare God to the people of this world who have failed us by not fulfilling their duties or promises. God is not to be compared to anyone in this world.
He is just, righteous, and perfect in all His ways.
Today, if you have been struggling to trust God in some areas. I challenge you to meditate on this scripture and thank God that He is faithful to fulfill what He promised.
Hebrews 6:8 “So it is impossible for God to lie for we know that his promise and his vow will never change! And now we have run into his heart to hide ourselves in his faithfulness.”
