God is not a man, that He should lie,
Or a son of man, that He should change His mind.
Has He said, and will He not do it?
Or has He spoken, and will He not fulfill it? Numbers 23:19
A most comforting truth for the believer. A most dire warning for the unbeliever.
The biblical context is Balak trying to bribe Balaam into calling down a curse on the people of Israel. But it is to no avail. God has already promised. He has already entered into covenant with His people. He will do them good. He will deliver on His promises. His Word is sure. He will carry His people through this life and ultimately save His people forever!
The unbeliever is not under this umbrella of God’s favor. Just as God has promised to save; He has also promised to hold accountable those who reject and deny Him.
No amount of sway, pressure, persuasion, manipulation, excuses, or denial will ever change the decrees of God. They are certain because He is faithful.
Flee to Christ if you are an unbeliever, and you will find the joy and peace of an ever-protecting, ever-providing, ever-saving God.
Rejoice in Christ as a believer. God’s promises will surely come to pass.
He doesn’t change His mind according to trends and polls. He doesn’t lie or go back on His Word. He’s not like us. He’s God!
