“Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue” (Psalms 120:2).
Text: Psalms 120:1-3.
There was an uncompromising final year Christian student in a university who excelled in her academics. As she was heading towards a first-class degree, some of her mates conspired and accused her of examination malpractice. She appeared before the Examination Malpractice Committee. Like David in our text, she was distressed, but remained undaunted and faithful to God during her ordeal. She cried unto God with the support of other Christians. God answered her prayers, vindicated her and she eventually made a first-class degree. What a disappointment for those conspirators with lying lips!
Christian youth, flee from people with lying lips. All liars will end up in hell except they repent. Wellings Calcott said, “Lying is practiced to deceive, to injure, betray, rob, and destroy.” Lying is induced by Satan whose goal is to destroy your Christian faith and testimony. Steer clear of people with lying lips, and remain steadfast in your Christian faith. Be known for truth and honesty at home, school, workplace and community. Witness to unbelieving youths and pray that God will save them from sin and lying lips.
Flee from people with lying lips.
All liars will end up in hell
Prayer for today
Deliver me Lord, from liars and conspirators.
