The Truth Teller

Apparently, verses that I’ve highlighted in my One Year Study Bible are the theme of my conversations with God. Today’s verse is equally as awesome: “Every word of God proves true” (Proverbs 30:5, NLT). This verse is especially uplifting, because you can’t trust what people say like you used to. For example, a few weeks ago, a man predicted the world would end. Obviously, he was wrong.

Solomon reminds us that there is someone whose words we can trust: God! The insight is simple: every word God speaks is (and proves) true. This should give us a fresh perspective when we read the inspiring words He gave the authors throughout the Bible. Paul wrote, “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them” (Romans 8:28, NLT). It’s true; He does! David wrote, “For the angel of the Lord is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him” (Psalm 34:7, NLT). It’s true!

We live in uncertain times, among fickle people, but God is consistent. He’s a truth teller! He’s such a truth teller that He endorsed Himself, “It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit” (Isaiah 55:11, NLT). Keep trusting what He says, in spite of what you see!
