TOPIC: God Cannot Lie
SCRIPTURE: God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Numbers 23:19
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A deep knowledge of God’s Character of faithfulness is the birthplace of strong faith.
We have embarked on the journey of unravelling the mystery of faith from our previous studies.
Today, we shall be taking this journey further. It is important to note that faith is confidence in the faithfulness of God borne out of a deep Knowledge of the Character of God. What is the meaning of that? A deep Knowledge of God’s Character of faithfulness is the birthplace of strong faith (Numbers 23:19, Psalms 89:34-35). Simply put, knowing that God is faithful is a trigger for faith.
1 Samuel 15:29 says:
And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent.
He is the Strength of Israel because He cannot lie. His strength lies in His inability and incapacity to lie. If He can lie, He would be weak.
Titus 1:2 confirms this: In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began.
God cannot lie!
We don’t say, “A lion does not fly”. Rather, we say, “A lion cannot fly”. We don’t say that a fish does not run. No! It cannot run. We don’t say that a man does not give birth to a child. No! Man cannot give birth to a child. Even if he desires to give birth by himself, it is impossible.
In the same manner, God cannot lie. The capacity to lie does not exist in Him.
I prophesy to you, in this season, the God who cannot lie will manifest His faithfulness in your life. Before this month is over, God will prove to you that He is real, reliable, and dependable.
Remember this: A deep knowledge of God’s character of faithfulness is the birthplace of strong faith.
Ask God to reveal Himself to you.
Study the Word of God consistently and trust God for light and insight in the faithfulness of God.
Take stock of God’s faithfulness in your life.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Psalm 139-141
QUOTE: Those who wait on the Lord cannot waste on the earth. Those who trust in God cannot rust in life. Culled from, “30 SECRETS TO THE TOP” by Dr Paul Enenche.
REFLECTION: After 33 years of ministry with outstanding and amazing results, Paul the Apostle cried, “That I may know Him”. How much of God do you know? Are you satisfied with your knowledge of God? Because to know Him is to trust Him. We only doubt someone we don’t know.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: I pray and decree that the Lord will pull you into a closer knowledge of Himself in Jesus’ Name.
