Titus 1:2 and 1 Samuel 15:29 both proclaim the same exciting news: GOD CANNOT LIE. Whether you believe this or not has great consequences on how you live your life. If you don’t believe this, you’re bound to rely upon your own wisdom or understanding (something the writer of Proverbs warned against in Proverbs 3:5-6). Our own wisdom and understanding is often faulty and doesn’t have the complexity and depth like God’s wisdom has. However, if you do believe GOD CANNOT LIE, then it should show itself in marvelous ways in your own life.
For example, you should never grow anxious. Philippians 4:6-7 informs us that when this does come upon us, we should go immediately to prayer and then God promises His peace to surround our hearts and our minds. It’s a promise of God. Another example, you should never concern yourself that God might not meet your needs. God promises to use His riches to supply all our needs in Christ. It’s another promise of God. I could go on and on but I think you get the main idea: God can be trusted because God fulfills His promises. And God doesn’t make a promise which He cannot fulfill.
I believe that when this truth that GOD CANNOT LIE truly sinks into our lives, it means we’ll walk more confidently than ever before and it will affect every aspect of our lives from how we handle our finances to how well we do in our marriages as well as our friendships. We have to make up our minds to believe it!
Coming up this Sunday is the next installment in THE CHURCH TRIUMPHANT. We’ll be looking at Titus 1:5-9 at a key component towards any church becoming and/or staying healthy. You won’t want to miss this message!
We had a great time at the 2nd HARVEST FOOD BANK this past Wednesday. This marked the first time that we didn’t work with produce but actually worked at getting labels on cans. We did a lot of cans!! If you haven’t ever joined us in ministering to our community like this, I’d encourage you to come the next time we go!!
Have a great rest of the week and I look forward to seeing YOU on Sunday!
Love, Pastor Chuck
