Nothing infuriates me more than dishonesty and deception.
Jesus described the devil as, “a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44
He also called him, “the ruler of this world.” John 12:31
Is it any wonder you and I need help to know the truth in a world that is full of lies.
Today, I’d love to have you pray with me…
God, Help Me Know the Truth In a World of Lies
Father, I need Your help.
Somedays I just want to throw my hands into the air and shout, “Father, what exactly is the truth here.”
Why is it that lying has become an acceptable part of life.
Even in Your churches, there are countless factions all claiming to KNOW the truth and I’m not including all the different “religions” out there vying for people’s hearts and commitments.
So, Father, I come to You asking for You to fill me with Your Spirit.
Your Son, while on trial before Pilate, said…
“I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.” John 18:37
And countless times, He began a conversation with the words, “I tell you the truth!”
Not only did He tell the truth, He said He IS the truth!
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
You have given me the Truth to replace the lies!
You show me the Way when life offers confusion and chaos!
You give me Life when my sinfulness deserves death.
Thank you for Jesus, who not only made my eternity with You possible but who gave a Truth that makes the journey through life purposeful and peaceful.
By the power of Your Spirit, keep me centered on the Truth of Jesus.
Jesus said to the people who believed in Him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31–32
The Truth that sets me free!
May I pray with David…
Teach me your ways, O Lord,
that I may live according to Your truth!
Grant me purity of heart,
so that I may honor You.
With all my heart I will praise You, O Lord my God.
I will give glory to Your name forever,
for Your love for me is very great.
You have rescued me from the depths of death.
When the world distracts and discourages, and I wait for answers to my prayers, help me keep my eyes on Jesus, “the One who began my faith and who makes it perfect” and in whose name I pray. Amen.
