They promise you anything

Updated on January 17, 2013

They give you nothing.

"Tell the truth the first time, then you won't have to remember what you said." Sam Rayburn

I live in a culture where they promise you anything to get you to do what they want you to do but have no intention of fulfilling their end of the bargain. They will make great promises to do great things for you if you do this or that for them. After you have done as they requested they suddenly get amnesia and don’t remember making those promises, even when they are written down.

I like to let them be blow hards in front of other people while a recorder is taping it. It puffs up their ego. Then I inform them I will gladly do as they want me to for them once they have delivered on their promises. I say things like you are a man or woman of respect and honour. I want to give you the privilege of showing everybody just how great of a respectable and honorable man or woman you are and refuse to budge. They lose a lot of face and anytime they try that con again I just remind them of their previous promises and eagerly await the day they are going to do all those wonderful things for me.

A little lie only lead to a bigger lie which leads to a bigger lie which ends up crowning you with a fools crown before all. Joseph- Antony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (the Lord is present) for being there and opening my eyes when the filthy snakes come with their smooth talk to reveal to me it is smooth with dung. Please always walk with me and convict me before I speak any lies. I ask in the great name of He who is the Truth Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

      Good morning Deborah.

      I am honoured that you esteem this worthy of sharing with others.

      Thank you for such a beautiful blessing.

      Good morning always exploring.

      I am living proof that when we depend upon God for guidence He will reveal these decievers to us before they can harm us.

      Good morning teaches.

      That is very wise to depend upon God as you do.

      May the wise Sheppard guide you away from and protect you from the revenous wolves.

      It hurts when you trust people and then they disappoint you later with their lies. We must be better at discerning and this only comes through prayer and keeping close to God. Great share.
