That’s a big thing to understand and remember. He cannot lie. It is not part of His personality and nature. It is not part of who He is.
He cannot lie.
Every promise He has made to us will come true. Every Word of His that we stand upon is sure.
Jesus, who is the visible image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15) tells us that He is the way, the truth, and the life. So, God is truth. And God cannot lie.
Today, trust in that.
Listen to what it says in Hebrews 6:18-20:
so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.
We, who have turned to God for refuge, can have that hope and encouragement. God cannot lie. He will keep His promise.
He will not leave us or forsake us. He will not turn us aside. God is with us.
He has promised us that. His word has echoed that truth in our ears. We know it, we read it, we have heard it preached.
But, know this. It is truth. He cannot, will not lie. He will not leave your side. He loves you, He cares for you, He will not forsake you.
You are His.
No matter the weather, the context, the mistake, the failing, the hurt, the pain, the whatever.
God loves you. He has promised. And He cannot lie.
