Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these. For if ye thoroughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye thoroughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbor; If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place; neither walk after other gods to your hurt: Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever, Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit.
Are you trusting fully in the LORD and the sacrifice of Jesus Christ? Are you heeding His words, His commandments and statutes? Are you growing in grace, knowledge and truth? If not, then you are trusting in lying words.God will overlook our sins and transgressions if we are actively trusting in Him, repenting of our sins, and doing our best to live according to His word. Many of our leaders often use words such as, “And may God bless ___________.” Are they living by every word of God? No. Is the nation living according to the word of God? No. Then if you believe them, you personally are trusting in lying words. The Bible defines a liar as any person who does not trust in Jesus and keep His commandments – 1 John 2:3-4. In whom are you trusting today?
