His Word Cannot Lie

Written by Shana Schutte

God’s Word cannot fail. His promises cannot lie.”

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – October 3, 2023

For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. 2 Corinthians 1:20

The Christian walk is marked by seasons. For example, one season may be marked by God teaching us how to take risks.

Another is marked by obedience and learning to follow Him even though we cannot see what’s ahead.

Another may be all about persevering through trials, and learning how to endure.

During this particular season, while I am fighting cancer, I believe the Lord is teaching me what it means to be a beloved daughter of God in a deeper way. He is showing me the reality of my inheritance as His child.

I have known the Lord for over 30 years, but in this season, I am experiencing a new level of trust and knowledge of my place as Jesus’ beloved.

This is happening because I am holding onto the Word of God as my shield against discouragement. It’s my life raft when I feel like I’m drowning. It’s my song in the night when my body is filled with pain.

In this season, I am holding onto Jesus and what the Word says, in a way that I haven’t ever before.

Maybe you have seen those Bible Promise books people buy and give as gifts. Rather than see the promises of God as nice-sounding phrases that simply encourage, I am holding onto them as fact. Fact that does not change. Fact that is not altered according to my feelings. Fact that is based on His unchanging character. Fact that is rooted in His deep love.

So, when the Scripture says in Psalm 91:14-16

“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

I am believing it. 

Every word. I’m taking it as fact. In this passage, the Lord says, “With long life I will satisfy him,” and I’m taking it as personal fact. God’s Word is steadying me. It’s bolstering me. It’s giving me joy and hope for the future.

If we do not believe God’s Word, it is still true but the strength that we receive from believing the Word is forfeited.

As for me, God said it. I believe it! That settles it! God’s Word cannot fail. His promises cannot lie.

I invite you to walk the road of faith today with me and take God at His Word, remembering that His promises cannot fail and His Word cannot lie, even when your feelings change.

“So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11).


Lord, today I take your Word as fact. Your promises cannot fail and your Word never changes. I stand on the unchanging truth of your Word. Amen.
