A Sunday Moment

Today we talked about Numbers 23:19-20.

 19 God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent; hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
 20  Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.

 I was so happy to hear that God is not a man. He is not limited to this earth, space or time. He is eternal. God shared some of what He is when He made man, but thank God, He is not a man.

 God is not a man that He should lie. He can't lie, whatever He says, It Is. If you are wearing a blue dress and God says it's red, It will be red (this is just an example from the speaker. I am not diminishing my God down to a God that does parlor tricks, but it is just an example that if God says it, He will do it. He does not lie like man has a tendency of doing). God is God. He spoke everything into existence, with just His spoken word. With just a breath, he breathed life into the dust and we were alive. He is an almighty creator that sits on His heavenly throne blessing us and waiting for us. We were made for His pleasure and we are the apple of His eye. You are the apple of His eye. He loves you like you were His favorite and He is a big enough God, that we are all His favorites. I am so happy to hear, God is not a man!


  1. "If you are wearing a blue dress and God says it's red, It will be red. God is God."

    I'm new to your site -- came here from Money Saving Mom -- and reading the above statement I felt I should write a differing view.

    God cannot contradict himself, so God cannot call blue red. To believe that, you must also believe, for example, that God can dethrone himself if he wants to simply because he's God, or that God could change his mind and redeem no-one, even though he's promised to redeem a people for himself.

    I don't mean to be contrary or argumentative; I'm just wanting to share the solid theology that I've been taught by my minister. It is a comfort to know that God is immutable. He cannot change, and he cannot contradict himself BECAUSE he is God! Red will remain red, because God is a God of order. To say otherwise is to actually diminish his precious attributes.

    1. Thank you for reading. We had a special speaker months ago and I was just so excited to hear that God's ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts. I know of a couple of funerals He interrupted in the Bible because He turned death into life. Out of Order? God is God
