2 Kings 13:23 And the LORD was gracious unto them, and had compassion on them, and had respect unto them, because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not destroy them, neither cast he them from his presence as yet.
I AM NOT A LIAR! These are words that all of us want to be able to say. In fact, for someone to call us a liar is about one of the worst things we can be called. It means we are untrustworthy. Not just in our speech and what we say, but it is also true then that we cannot be trusted in the things we do. Moreover, for the most part, most of us intend to tell the truth. However, there are those times when you say, I will be there at 10:00 and you get there at 10:05. We have all heard the excuses that there was a train which blocked the road, three dogs ran in front of the car, there was a new detour which was just put in, and the slow semi driver you could not get around. Nevertheless, the fact remains; you said one thing and did another. It was not because you wanted to, but because things seemed out of your control what you said, did not come to pass.
It is so great to know that God never ever, ever, ever, tells a lie? In today’s verse, we find God had made a promise with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and nothing could cause Him to break His Word. The reason is that there is never anything out of His control.
What promises did God’s Word reveal to you today? Whatever they are; you can take them to the bank. God will never make a promise He will not keep. NEVER! Including the one in Hebrews 13:5, which says, “…I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” NEVER!
