The constant bombardment of media with headlines of degradation and accusations continue to be ever present before us leaving us with absolutely no idea of what is true. The constant back and forth motion of distorted facts leaves us wondering if there really is such a thing as a word of truth anymore.
Feelings of betrayal are a part of every day life and the constant thought of who can we really trust are there to cause us to question the motives of those that we meet. We face constant change with very little remaining that we thought would last forever. Friendships dissolve that we once thought true, families break apart leaving inner turmoil of doubt as to what we once held on to as truth. In this world we find no answers, no word of truth.
Yet, there is an ever present reminder that we have to hold on to as believers; we have an ever present God who has provided us with His Word of Truth.
“Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgements endureth forever.” Psalms 119:160
When everything else around us leaves us with questions, we know that He is constant and steadfast, never changing.
“For He is the living God, and stedfast forever, and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and His dominion shall be even unto the end.” Daniel 6:26b
We can trust in Him and all that He says and does, knowing that He is right and His words are true.
“For the word of the Lord is right, and all His works are done in truth.” Psalms 33:4
As we reflect upon who He is it becomes important that we seek to fill our lives with the Word of Truth that He has provided for us. Rather than looking upon the discrepancies of the world we need to focus on what things we know to be true, filling our minds with His Word and the Truth that He has provided for us.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8
