God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through? Numbers 23:19
The Constant God
God is a God who never changes. He is not a man so he does not think like a man, nor does he act like a man. He cannot be persuaded. Man is so unreliable. Man fails to act and speaks broken promises. We are a sinful people who give in to our flesh and human nature every single day.
We can only think as a human thinks with our human brain. Yet we expect God to act as we act. It is against His nature to act as we act; however, it is because of our flesh and our sin that He has mercy on us. He knows we are weak and give in to our own desires. So we cannot hold Him to our standards; we must instead push ourselves to His standards. This verse tells us that He is trustworthy because He works in His ways, not ours.
A Prayer to Remember
Your ways are perfect, Oh Lord. May I always trust how you work and that you know what is best for me. Amen.
