Numbers 23:19..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, shall he not make it good?
I have spent more than half a century in life and I could reflect on some of my words, actions, promises, relationships, and so many others that are too numerous to mention, I see myself as imperfect human being, and I thank God that He is not like me. I have said many words that I regretted later on, and many of my actions in the past do not measure up to a life that follows Christ. Many promises I have made could not be kept because of my inability to control myself. Even when I wanted to do good, I found myself struggling with my reasoning or thoughts debating on the merit of the recipient.
I thank God that God is not like me. Thinking of blessings that we receive from God daily, how much did we pay Him. We receive the gift of life, sleeping and waking up everyday, receiving the energy to get up and do our daily exercise, the air we breath is always available, sun providing the daily light and moon taking over the night for our pleasure. He opens his hand to give us our daily bread. All these blessings are given to us irrespective of whether we greet Him or not, or whether we sin or not. We human beings are selective in the way we show love, favor or respect. I THANK GOD THAT GOD IS NOT A MAN.
God is no respecter of any person. Though He makes us in His image, He is not like us. He is GOOD in all ramification. He blesses even those who do not know Him. God is TRUTH. There is NO LIE in Him. He knows you more than you know yourself. Nothing is hidden from Him. From generation to generation, He has been God and He will continue to be God. He is the One in charge of all situations and whatever His mouth has spoken, He will do. As a matter of fact, He has never changed, but He is the unchanging changer. In His TIME, He makes all things beautiful. Despite the fact that Adam messed things up from the beginning, He did not abandon His creations, He found another way to restore mankind to Himself, by Him (JESUS) coming to the world to make that sacrifice that brought salvation to us all.
So brothers and sisters, you can TRUST God that He has plan for you and He will perfect that plan, manifest it and you will glorify Him. Don’t Trust man, because man will disappoint you, but God that has given you His word will follow through. He says I will never leave you nor forsake you. God bless you as you Trust in Him.
