Athings are pos­si­ble with God, but THREE THINGS ARE IM­POS­SI­BLE with Him: God can­not LIE, God can­not DIE and God can­not FAIL. One of the fun­da­men­tal bases of our trust in God is His moral at­tributes, His im­pec­ca­ble Ho­li­ness and eter­nal na­ture. God ex­hibits ab­so­lute, undi­luted Ho­li­ness and in­tegrity. God Almighty is never capri­cious, as He is con­sis­tently im­mutable and re­li­able. It is dif­fi­cult to trust in some­one that is not re­li­able, whose words and prom­ises can­not be trusted. The God and Fa­ther of our LORD JE­SUS, Who is also the God of Abra­ham, Isaac and Ja­cob is con­sis­tently con­sis­tent, re­li­able and trust­wor­thy. The Scrip­ture de­clares that THIS GOD CAN­NOT LIE. It is never in His na­ture or char­ac­ter TO TELL OR ACT A LIE. A cow can­not fly, a fish can­not walk, a pig can­not bark. So, it is im­pos­si­ble for God to act or tell a lie. The Scrip­ture fur­ther de­clares that God is not a MAN OR A PROD­UCT OF A MORTAL MAN. Num­bers 23:19 (AMP) “God is not A MAN that He should TELL OR ACT A LIE; nei­ther THE SON OF MAN that He should feel re­pen­tance or com­punc­tion for what He has promised. Has He said and shall He not do it? Or has He spo­ken and SHALL HE

NOT MAKE IT GOOD?” The best of men at their best are still men - fal­li­ble, some­times ir­re­spon­si­ble, some­times ir­ra­tional, po­lit­i­cal or hyp­o­crit­i­cal. But God will never break a covenant. Psalm 89: 34- 35 “MY COVENANT WILL I NOT BREAK; nor al­ter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Once have I SWORN BY MY HO­LI­NESS THAT I WILL NOT LIE unto David.” God is a COVENANT KEEPER never a COVENANT BREAKER. In the nat­u­ral, some­body can make a prom­ise but may not be alive to ful­fil it. God, Who gives the prom­ises, is an ETER­NAL GOD that can never die. Isa­iah 40: 28-29 “Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard, that THE EV­ER­LAST­ING GOD, THE LORD, the Cre­ator of the ends of the earth, FAINTETH NOT, nei­ther is WEARY?” Rev­e­la­tion 1: 8 “I am the Al­pha and Omega, the be­gin­ning and the end­ing, saith the LORD, which is and which was and which is to come, the Almighty.” Rev­e­la­tion 1:18 “I am He that liveth and was dead and be­hold, I am alive for ev­er­more, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” He is the One that LIVES FOR­EVER MORE. Fi­nally, the Liv­ing God of Heaven and earth CAN­NOT FAIL. He is Om­nipo­tent. When He speaks, His Words are De­crees, Laws and Statutes that must be car­ried out. John 10:35 (AMP) “So men are called gods by the Law; men to whom God’s mes­sage came – and the SCRIP­TURE CAN­NOT BE SET ASIDE OR CAN­CELLED OR BRO­KEN OR AN­NULLED.” God stands by His Word to per­form and God and His Words are One. Those who re­ceived su­per­nat­u­ral in­ter­ven­tion of God in times past, were those who chose to trust in this God who can­not lie, who can­not die and who can­not fail. To­day, no mat­ter what has hap­pened, trust in the God and Fa­ther of our LORD JE­SUS CHRIST. You will ex­pe­ri­ence His Mercy, Grace and Su­per­flu­ous Bless­ings to­day, as you trust Him in your cir­cum­stance.
