The word of God say God cannot lie; (Titus 2:2) Now we know that the word of God is the truth and that it is impossible for God to lie yet often times when we are confronted with the question who is lying between God and the devil? We unfortunately make the wrong decision that God is lying and the consequences of this tragic decision has been the
cause of the misery and afflictions that has been part of our lives.
Back in the garden of Eden, Eve was faced with the situation to decide who is lying between God and the devil. The LORD God said to them; "Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eats thereof thou shall surely die. (Gen 2:16-17)
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. (Gen 3:4-5)
Now the devil told them the exact opposite of what God told them which means that someone is lying. However, we know God cannot lie, but tragically Eve choose to believe that the devil is telling the truth and makes God a liar. The unfortunate consequences of this failure of judgment on Eve part has been the cause of the suffering and affliction of the human race.
Eve made this error of judgment because she leaned on her understanding. She considered that the tree is called the tree of knowledge of good and evil and this is what the devil said the tree will give them. More so, the tree was good for food, and it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise. Based on her understanding the devil is telling the truth and that makes God a liar, but we know that God cannot lie therefore her understanding is defective and cannot be relied on, and so it is written "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5) Eve failed to trust in the Lord and based her decision on her understanding which led her to the wrong
The main tragedy of our lives however, is that, many times we are also confronted with this situation we most often lean on our own understanding and fail to trust in the Lord and this has led us to the wrong decision of making God that cannot lie a liar. Unfortunately, this wrong decision is the cause of the problem and afflictions we faced in our lives.
When God says don’t cheat, don’t steal, don’t defraud, don’t bribe and so on and that anything you lose for my sake you will get an hundred fold in this world, on the other hand the devil says opportunity only comes but once, and opportunity once lost cannot be regain, therefore be smart and go against the word of God. That you will suffer if you don't go against God's word. Who do you believe and follow his words and who do you make a liar?
When God say do not give in to the pleasure of sin that it is poison to your soul because the wages of sin is death and the devil says it is fun and that this is real live. Who do you believe and follow his words and who do you make a liar?
When God say do not repay back evil for evil but overcome evil with good and that vengeance is mine that he will repay and the devil says you must not allow him to take you for a fool and take you for granted and that you must retaliate and show what stuff you are made of and that you should not allow him to get away with it. Who do you believe and follow his words and who do you make a liar?
All the times the devil is always out to deceive us to disobey the word of God, that disobedience to God's words will profit us more and that what God has said is not true. However, we know God cannot lie yet most times we still choose to go with the devil thereby making God a liar. This wrong decision that we often make in this situation is the reason why there are so much pains, hurts, sufferings and afflictions in our live.
The truth is God cannot lie and the devil is the liar, the bible say let God be true and all men liars and again it is impossible for God to lie, more so it is written when the devil speaks a lie he speaks of his own language. That is lying comes naturally to the devil. Unfortunately and the big tragedy of our lives is that we most times still choose to follow the devil making God that cannot lie a liar.
The problem with us is, just like Eve, we do not trust God and we lean on our understanding and the devil lies seem to resonate with what our senses figures our. Therefore, as Eve understanding led her to believe that the devil word is true making God a liar, our understanding also most times leads us to follow the devil and makes God a liar. This is where we make mistake because God cannot lie. Our understanding can mislead us therefore we must not lean on our understanding but trust in the Lord with all our heart. It is this our failure to trust in the Lord with all our heart and not lean on our own understanding that has made us to suffer affliction and difficulties just like.
That is why God is asking you whose report shall you believe? We have believed the devil for too long and have brought evil and afflictions and suffering on our selves. it is time we start believing God and not follow the lies of the devil anymore so that we can start enjoying all the good things that God has planned for us from the foundation of the world.
There is so much pains and suffering in this world and it is all because for too long we have made God that cannot lie a liar and the consequences has been the crisis and suffering and affliction that has been part of our lives all this while.
We must know that God cannot lie, therefore, in every situation no matter how enticing the proposition of the devil is and how much it makes sense to our understanding. We must always obey God's words, for God words is the truth. If only you can choose to believe and follow the word of God all the time, your life will be free of crisis and pains and affliction. The only reason why there are so much suffering and affliction is that we allow the devil to deceive us a lot into believing his lies is the truth making the truth of God’s word a lie. The bible says the devil that deceives the whole world. If you will not allow the devil to deceive you anymore, knowing that God cannot lie, and trust him with all your heart and lean not on your own understand and be not wise in your own eye. Thou shall do well and have peace and prosperity
