Foundation scripture: I Kings 8:56  (KJV)

56 Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.

God’s Word is true and sure. He never fails to do what He promised. You can trust His Word absolutely. We all make promises, but none of us have ever kept 100 percent of the promises that we have made in our lives. How wonderful that God has kept every promise that He has ever made. Men have failed God, but God has never failed men. God is full of righteousness and justice – He never lies and His Word never lies.

Psalm 33:4-9  (KJV)

4 For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.

5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.

6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.

8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.

9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.

God created the world by and with His words. He spoke and it happened exactly as He spoke it. If He created the whole universe with His words, then surely anything else He says and anything He promises will also come to pass. His Word is true, righteous and just. If we really believed that - then we would conduct our lives very differently from the way we do now. We would not lack, we would not fail, if we were founded and established on the truth of God’s Word. Psalm 107:19-21  (KJV)

19 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.

20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

21 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

God gave us His Word to heal us and deliver us from sin and destruction. God’s Word is the source of our deliverance. God’s Word is the blueprint for our lives. He made us. He knows what we need and He knows how we tick and He knows what is good for us. Our lives should be ordered according to His Word. However, we will not order our lives in the way God desires until we know His Word and until we believe it to be absolutely true and sure. We must know that we can trust His Word in our lives. God’s Word will never fail us; it will never let us down. We can praise God for His Word, because it is true whether we see it or not. As we praise Him and as we believe His Word then we will see it come to pass in our lives.

Psalm 138:2  (KJV)

2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

God’s Word is full of integrity. He holds His own word in high regard. There is a saying, “You are only as good as your word.” This means that your worth depends on your integrity. God is as good as His Word. Numbers 23:19  (KJV)

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?

There are some things that God cannot do. One of them is that He cannot lie. If He speaks it, He will do it. If He promises it, He will make sure that it comes to pass. When you understand that God’s Word is absolutely true, then you can begin to receive it exactly as it is written and you can receive it as true for you.
