"17 In the same way God wanted to demonstrate more clearly to the heirs of the promise that his purpose was unchangeable,t and so he intervened with an oath,18 so that we who have found refuge in him may find strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us through two unchangeable things, since it is impossible for God to lie.19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, sure and steadfast, which reaches inside behind the curtain, 20 where Jesus our forerunner entered on our behalf, since he became a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek."
--Hebrews 6:17-20

The past couple weeks, I have been feeling discouraged because I have seen no progress in the things that I know that God has promised.  Who knows?  Maybe it will take years, decades even, before I see those promises fulfilled.  Yet this Scripture gives me hope: " is impossible for God to lie."  Of course I know this.  I mean, come on, He's God.  He's perfect.  Incapable of lying because that's a sin and God doesn't sin.  But the reality of it is, when all of life seems to be contradicting what God has said, it does seem like He is a liar.

He gave Joseph some dreams, too.  Those dreams didn't come into fruition for 17 years!  Slavery and prison were the opposite of the rule and reign that Joseph was promised.  And yet, through it all, He remained faithful.  Because God is not a liar.  Remember that next time you feel that God is taking too long.  He will fulfill what He promised, even if it's not in our time frame.
