A Man of His Word
A man of his word. Hmmm, what comes to mind when you hear these words. For some, you might be thinking of that person who professes broken promises. But, these words are not empty or vain when they flow from a sovereign, loving, and promise-keeping God.
Words carry a lot of power. When everyone has a “social soapbox” to stand on and desire to be heard. There is a foundation in the Word of God that shows us the one person, we can take the words, “a man of His word” literally. There are so many scriptures that talk about the character and the integrity of God especially regarding him being a man of his word. In John 1:1 AMP it says, “In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. It’s a great thing to know God sets a standard.
The Bible tells us God does not change, so we can count on him. Malachi 3:6 AMP. He affirms his integrity and then shows the shortcomings of humans when he said, he is not like people, who lie; or the type of person who changes his mind. Oops, did he really say that? Yes, he did! The Bible goes further to say whatever he says he does, he speaks and does. Does this make your chest swell with confidence in God? Numbers 23:19 GNT
So what is the lesson, build your confidence in God and trust - he is a man of His Word. As humans made in his image, let’s do better because we know better. We were created in God’s image and we should be his extension in the earth because he has set a great example. Turn your focus on becoming, being, and doing better regarding the words you say. Become the person others can count on.
Declaration: God because you created me in your image and likeness, I can become a person whom others can count on. Empower me with knowledge, wisdom, and revelation to do, be and become more like you. In Jesus Name, Amen.
