FACING THE TRUTH
God will help us as we deal with the truth. The question may enter your mind, what is the truth? Know that God is the truth and the life. His truth prevails! We must come to a point in our lives when we stand face-to-face with the truth. It is important that we live the truth every day of our lives. Many people know the truth but are not willing to live by the truth. They make excuses and try to justify their actions based upon words like God knows my heart. We cannot plead ignorance. God has set the truth before us. Today’s devotion, speaking of God’s truth is found in John 16:13.
“When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on His own but will tell you what He has heard. He will tell you about the future.”
Jesus, the Master Teacher is speaking of the work of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit will guide truth to His people in this chapter. He tells the disciples that He will soon depart from them and go to His Father. However, they will not be left alone, for the Spirit will guide and lead them. The Comforter will come and give them peace. Their sorrow will be brief and their joy everlasting. The truth shall set them free. Wisdom and strength will be imparted unto them and their ministry will be blessed. When you can, read this entire chapter. Know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the truth gives us power, strength, and peace. Thank God, today, for the truth. It has not only set us free but has enhanced our lives forever.
