There are so many “truth” out there that are not truths. We are constantly bombarded by “truths” which are really lies.
But the truth we need is found in Jesus. He is the TRUTH!
It’s only as we spend more time with Him that the lies we have believed can be exposed and the amazing truths He has
for us be revealed.
Mind you, the devil has been feeding us lies all of our lives through so many mediums – television, social media, people
around us…and the list goes on.
For a lot of people they were not taught to question what they were told especially if it was from a “credible” source.
They just believed or can I say “we” simply believed. I was one of those people.
I was told a lot of things and I just believed. But when I got born again a lot of those things I believed didn’t make sense.
What the Word said and what I was told didn’t match up and over the years the lies have been exposed.
It’s literally taken years for lies to be torn down in my life.
As I spend more and more time in His Word and prayer the lies are being broken down.
We need to question the “truths” we have accepted.
The real truth is found in Jesus. What He tells us is truth and we need to hold up what we have believed prior, to the Word
of God. What is not in step with the Word of God needs to be disregarded. We need to bring the lies to Jesus.
He is the only one that can break the lies that have bound us for so long. He is the lie-breaker if there is such a term 🙂
We need to always remember that God’s truth is stronger than every lie the devil has told us.
I think of the Israelites who chose to believe lies instead of the amazing truth God had for them.
Instead of believing God would be with them as they went to possess their promise land they feared. They believed they
didn’t have a chance against giants. They believed that the giants were stronger than the God they served!
The “truth” the Israelites accepted affected how they saw themselves, how they saw their circumstances and how they saw
God which lead them to lose the inheritance God had for them.
Like I said, there are so many lies disguised as truths that we are being told on a daily basis. But we need to stand them up
to what Jesus is telling us and if it’s not the same then we need to discard it.
For my last example I think of Jairus.
His daughter was near death so he went to find Jesus which he did. But on his way back some messengers met him along
the way and told him to not worry the Master any longer because his daughter had died. That was the ‘truth” he was told.
But the TRUTH had another truth for Jairus – his daughter would live!
“Jesus paid no attention to what they said, but told him, “Don’t be afraid, only believe.”
Remember, God’s truth is stronger than every lie the devil has told us.
And in this case, His truth was stronger than death!
Jairus’ daughter was raised from the dead.
So as I come to the end, be careful what you are accepting on a daily basis. Even if people around you are telling you
it’s useless to keep believing a thing, or even if they are saying it’s dead, believe the truth.
Believe what Jesus is revealing to you every time no matter how “credible” the source is that is telling you lies.
Bless you friends
