Since I was a child, I grew up hearing this phrase “God Doesn’t Lie”— against every doubt I could possibly have as a Christian.
But it never inspired the confidence that I thought it should, until recently when I got to a point where I was losing faith and I couldn’t even pray, remembering all God had promised me but still felt stagnant, nothing was working and my world was on a pause.
But in the midst of all these, God’s word came clearly to me “Ba Na Karya” meaning I do not lie, and that inspired the confidence that led to the birth of the song in Hausa “ Ba Ka Karya” meaning “You do not Lie” reassuring me that he’s got time and season in his hand and what he said he will do he definitely will.
With reference to the Book of
Numbers 23:19 “God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?”
This perspective shift drastically changed my understanding of God’s promises.
And my prayer is that “ may that Man or Woman be located through the song. May the Lord grant healing, Deliverance and salvation to their hearings in Jesus name amen.”
