What is truth?
Do you tell the truth...to yourself I mean?
God's word says, "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free."
I want to expound on this....
The truth is the opposite of lies.God is the father of truth.He never lied and He lives inside of you, if you know Him as your Lord & Savior.So then, why do we listen to the "father of lies" instead sometimes...the one who casts doubts on our dreams, who tells us we aren't worthy, who wants us to fail?
GOD, THE GOD, has called us to greater things.He says we are:
the head and not the tail, more than conquerors, the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, redeemed from the curse of the law, an overcomer, a new creation, transformed by the renewing of my mind, complete in HIM, His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works. No weapon formed against me shall prosper, for my righteousness is of the Lord. Whatever I do shall prosper for I am like a tree planted by the rivers of water. Greater is He that is in me, than He that is in the world. God's angels have charge over me and keep me. My pathway is filled with life! I put on the full armor of God & win! I delight myself in the Lord, and He gives me the desires of my heart! The Lord is my shepherd, I do not want for anything! God supplies all my needs! I sow bountifully & I reap bountifully! I trust in the Lord with all my heart & He directs my paths. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I let the peace of God rule in my heart & I cast my cares onto Him.
That's the TRUTH! GOD is truth! This is who I am & this is who you are!
Look, I am not where I need to be, but thank God I'm not where I used to be! I'm okay ( because God says I am and accepts me for who I am) and I'm on my way!
I choose to walk in truth and VICTORY!
What is TRUTH to you? I hope you will choose to walk in truth with me. Be encouraged my spark friends and LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF TRUTH!
P.S. If you haven't listened to the song, THE VOICE OF TRUTH, by Casting Crowns, I hope you will look it up. It will really lift your spirits today if they need lifting!
