"What you say goes, God, and stays, as permanent as the heavens. Your truth never goes out of fashion; it’s as up-to-date as the earth when the sun comes up." Psalm 119:89-90
We are all tempted on occasion to say things we think others what to hear. Our motives are varied – we want to be popular, avoid confrontation or sometimes to manipulate a situation to our advantage. We may achieve what we want in the short term however as a general rule the success of this strategy tends to be short-lived. Either we can’t maintain the pretence or our performance doesn’t measure up to the expectation we have created and we end up getting deeper and deeper into situations we can’t escape from.
The fundamental nature of Father God is diametrically opposed to this pattern of behaviour. When He says something – it stays true! So when it says over and over in God’s word that He loves you, that you’re precious to Him, that He has a plan to prosper and bless you – He’s not saying it to get you to like Him, or to manipulate your emotions and then let you down, He’s saying it because it’s 100% true.
Today God wants to remind you that He’s unchanging in His commitment to you and He’ll feel the same tomorrow, and the next day and the next.
