June 1 Revealing God’s Nature

Numbers 23:19 says, “God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind.

The Word reveals God’s nature, and His nature reflects His will. Everything God says reveals His character and purposes. Remember, God and His Word are inseparable. Because of His integrity, God fulfills His Word.

How will we respond to what the Word reveals about God’s character? Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” Do we believe that God will keep His Word? A cardinal principle of answered prayer is belief in the trustworthiness of the One to whom you pray. The power of your prayers depends on it. The Word will work in your life only as you believe it: And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe. Placing confidence in someone’s word and character demonstrates that you believe him. The same thing applies to your relationship with God. What do you demonstrate about your belief (or disbelief) in God? Your belief is evidence that you trust Him. He is not impressed by how many Scriptures you quote or how long you pray. He is moved and convinced when you believe what He has told you and when you prove it by acting on it.

Prayer:

Father, I believe that You are honorable and true to Your Word. Help me to grow in my faith, to learn to trust You more and more each day. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Thought: Belief is trust in action!

Reading: 1 Kings 10–11; Luke 21:20–38; 1 Thessalonians 2:13
