“He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He.” (Deuteronomy 32:4)
God keeps His promises. If you can find one promise in the entire Bible that God cannot keep, then God is not the God He says He is. The fact that God is truth is another way that God shows His perfection. His Word is perfectly reliable; He cannot help but speak truth. He never, ever lies. God is truth. Here are some important, truthful promises that He has made to you, if your trust is in Him –
God promises never to leave you. (Hebrews 13:5)
God promises to take care of your needs. (Philippians 4:19)
God promises to hear you when you are in trouble. (Psalm 50:15)
God promises to love you. (1 John 4:16)
God promises everlasting life to you if you trust in Him. (John 3:16)
People will disappoint you. Your friends will sometimes make promises they cannot keep. Your family will sometimes say things they do not mean. Your classmates will sometimes lie or forget to keep their promises. Why? Because humans sin and cannot be perfect. But God is perfect. Every word of God is true. Psalm 33:4 says, “For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth.”
Would you like to do something fun?
Go on a scavenger hunt through your Bible and find as many of God’s promises as you can. You will find hundreds of them, if you look closely. Underline them and remember them. Tell God how you feel about the promises you find.
And most of all, remember – whatever God says He will do, He will do it!
It is impossible for God to lie.
