Who hasn’t felt the sting of betrayal. Someone promises you this or that, or works an angle until you concede (lowering your guard). Just long enough for them to pull the rug out from underneath you.
It happens all the time, in friendships, in marriages, in business. The atrocities that are committed can be borderline criminal. Truthfully, these disloyalties are committed by those who have low self esteem, seek approval, recognition and or accolades. Occasionally the motivation is purely that of jealousy & without realizing, they can utterly destroy another’s life; their reputation, their sense of well being and ability to trust others.
The power of the tongue is spoken of in the Bible. It also says that we shall be judged for every idle word. Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. Better is he that says nothing than He that makes a promise of oath and fails to honour it.
Where in your life have you failed to keep your word? Whom have you betrayed?
Have you started a course of action and then just retracted as if you were never a party to a particular interaction? To whom does your loyalty belong to, the God of Integrity or the Father of lies & deception?
The word of God expects us to mindful of what we allow others to believe or perceive! We, as representatives of the Word are required to be upright in our dealings. We are to be truthful and integrous in all we say, think and do. This is not a license to be cruel in truth BUT we are expected to keep our intentions and our agendas in alignment with Godly precepts and behaviors.
Begin at once to take a mental inventory of what you say. Make sure that you follow through to the best of your ability to keep your word. If you are a victim of betrayal, the best protection against it is to maintain the integrity that you wish to receive. Those who deal treacherously will dig their own ditch and rightfully, fall straight way into it! You’ll be privy to it, God will see to that but just don’t gloat!
Numbers 30:2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.
God doesn't accept the altering promises!
Lev 27:9-10 And if it be a beast, whereof men bring an offering unto the LORD, all that any man giveth of such unto the LORD shall be holy. He shall not alter it, nor change it, a good for a bad, or a bad for a good
Psalms 25:20-21 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
Leviticus 5:4-5 Or if a soul swear, pronouncing with his lips to do evil, or to do good, whatsoever it be that a man shall pronounce with an oath, and it be hid from him; when he knoweth of it, then he shall be guilty in one of these. And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these things, that he shall confess that he hath sinned in that thing:
Proverbs 19:1 Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
Titus 2:7-8 In all things showing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine showing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.
God’s word is never broken
2 Chr. 21:7 Howbeit the LORD would not destroy the house of David, because of the covenant that he had made with David, and as he promised to give a light to him and to his sons for ever.
Proverbs 12:22 Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.
Proverbs 12:25 Heaviness in the heart maketh it stoop: (heavy and hurting) but a word maketh it glad.
Eph. 4:24-25 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
Matthew 5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
