Do You Believe God’s Word?
In his Presence: Psalms 1:1-2
“Paul, a bond-servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the faith of those chosen of God and the knowledge of the truth which is according to godliness, in the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised long ages ago, but at the proper time manifested, even His word, in the proclamation with which I was entrusted according to the commandment of God our Savior” (Titus 1:1-3).
Satan calls into question the integrity of God. But as we see in the above verse, it is impossible for God to lie—it’s against His nature. While it is impossible for God to tell a lie, it is nearly impossible for Satan to tell the truth. In the Garden of Eden, he pulled Eve away from God using a lie that looked good to her.
This is every Christian’s battle. Satan starts by introducing a little lie and casting doubt. The reason we believe the Bible is the Word of God is because Jesus said it was the Word of God. If Jesus was wrong about that, then He was not Jesus. Jesus would be in error, so He could not be the Son of God. We know Jesus could not be in error and be God as well. So then the Bible is the Word of God.
Satan wants us to doubt God’s Word. Whether we’ll admit it or not, we’ve all failed to act on His Word. We often turn to other sources of assistance in dealing with money, family, life, priorities, and choices.
