2 Kings 7 – Truth

Do you ever get tired of trying to figure out who’s right and who’s wrong?

If you parent siblings, you frequently find yourself wondering, “Who’s telling the truth and who’s not?” If you listen to politicians, you often find one saying one thing, and another says something different. If you watch news networks, you find one network has one slant on things and another has a different slant.

It just gets so tiring trying to figure out what you should believe. Consequently, it’s easy to become skeptical and have trouble believing anything.

But one thing that comes through loud and clear in 2 Kings chapter 7, and it’s this…when God says something, you can bank on it. If it’s something that sounds beyond imagination, it will still come to pass…even if God has to do something beyond imagination to bring it to pass!

Proverbs 30:5 (NLT) says, “Every word of God proves true.” 1 Samuel 15:9 (NLT) says of God, “He who is the Glory of Israel will not lie, nor will He change His mind, for He is not human that He should change His mind!”

In God, and in His Word, we find a source of stable and unchanging truth. Truth we can count on. Truth we can bank on.

The question is…will we?

Will we trust and act on the unchanging truth of God, or will we continue to bounce from opinion to opinion. (1 Kings 18:21) Will we look for and listen to God’s word as truth, or will we look for and listen to what we like and ignoring what we don’t like. (2 Timothy 4:3)

Look for the truth of God and settle for nothing less. It’s the one thing you can always count on. (John 14:6)
