“God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he not said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?” Numbers 23:19 (ESV).
God is a good God, and we can stand on His Word – all the way through. It often strikes me as funny how easy it is to have faith for the most profound, and most miraculous, promise in history – the promise of salvation – and yet we struggle to trust Him with our more basic needs.
Did you know that God promises us that He will take care of all of our needs and that He will do so abundantly and according to His riches? (Ephesians 3:20; Philippians 4:19.) Or that He will take care of all our enemies for us? (Deuteronomy 28:7.) Or that He will make us the head and not the tail, and the lender who never has to borrow? (Deuteronomy 28:12-13.) Or that He will never leave us or forsake us? (Hebrews 13:5.)
Today’s Truth: Take Him At His Word
All of these are promises (and so many more) God has made to us, and they are available to us in the same way salvation is available – by faith! (Romans 4:13.) God cannot go back on His promises, and so we only need to do our part – to follow Him and simply take Him at His Word. If we can trust God with something so fundamental and big as the salvation of our souls, how much more can we trust Him in these other areas of promise? They’re almost incomprehensibly good; what a loving Father we serve!
Today’s devotion was written by Erin Grant. Erin says, “I am who I am because of who He is. God changed my life, and my heart is to be used of Him to bring others into the healing, wholeness, and freedom He intended for each one of us. Ultimately, I long to bring others into an encounter with His heart and manifest presence, and to see revival and salvations ignited across the United States.”
