Don’t Call God a Liar

“What if some were unfaithful? Will their unfaithfulness nullify God’s faithfulness? Not at all! Let God be true, and every human being a liar.” 

– Romans 3:3

Yesterday we talked about healing others by ascribing to them the same value that Jesus ascribed to us. Today, I want to expand on that thought further by giving you a simple exhortation: don’t call God a liar.

As important as it is to call out and identify value in others, it’s equally as critical to affirm it in yourself. You must stop disagreeing with what the Lord says about you. As challenging as it can be (especially for those of us who grew up in a legalistic or religious environment), to do any less is to agree with Satan, whose aim is to steal, kill, and destroy! Since your Savior calls you the righteousness of God and tells you that you’re chosen, forgiven, and dearly loved, it’s vital to bring your mind and heart into alignment with Him. When you devalue yourself and speak things over your life that contradict His Word, you are, in essence, calling Him a liar. Since He is the Truth and there is no darkness or falsehood in Him, He defines your worth. Because He says you are valued and accepted, nothing can take that away!

Friend, you can trust God because He loves you completely; no one wants the best for your life more than He does! No matter how dark things look, He is on your side. He’s not a bad Father, He’s a Good Father, and in fact, He can only do good. He is faithful, patient, slow to anger, abounding in love, and is not in a hurry as He cultivates the fullness of your potential. When you agree with who He is and what He says about you, He changes your heart and elevates your thoughts in a way that will transform your life! Isn’t that great news?

Prayer


Forgive me, Jesus, for the times in which I have disagreed with what you say about me. Today, I bring my thoughts into alignment with your truth and affirm my worth in you.

Reflection


What negative words have you spoken over yourself or your situation that may have unknowingly labeled God a liar? Which truths from His Word counter those lies?
