“And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the words of the Lord in thy mouth is Truth.” 1 Kings 17:24.(KJV).
The son of the widow that Elijah was staying with died.
Elijah told the widow not to worry and to give him her dead son.
Elijah talked with God, and he prayed.
He stretched himself over the dead body, bringing the son back to life.
Then the widow believed Elijah to be a servant of God.
Are you a servant of God?
Are there Godly credible things for people to see in you?
Can someone confirm that the Word of the Lord in your mouth is the Truth?.
What do you tell your friends?
Can they also say: “the words in your mouth are the truth?”
Do you still tell a ‘white lie’?
Is it easy?
Did I hear you say the lie will not damage anybody?
It is still a lie.
“You are the offspring of your father, the devil, and you serve your father very well, passionately carrying out his desires. He’s been a murderer right from the start! He never stood with the Truth, for he’s full of nothing but lies—lying is his native tongue. He is a master of deception and the father of lies!” John 8:44 (TPT)
Is lying your default mode?
God knows what you are doing.
Application to the Christian life:
Follow Jesus, not yourself.
