It’s possible that we can get lost in our own opinions. Not just the ones others’ share with us, but the ones we drum up internally as well. Sometimes the line between our perception, and truth, can get a little fuzzy. Fortunately for mankind, Jesus clearly defines truth for us. “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”
If we ever need a clear definition of what truth is, we can look to someone who clearly defined it by putting it on display, Jesus IS truth. And by reason, we can understand that truth, will never contradict itself, just as Jesus will never contradict Himself. He is the very definition of truth. Webster and Oxford will definitely provide their best attempts (as humans could) but by His very nature, His very existence, Jesus IS truth.
So we will spend the next 23 days preparing our mind and soul for truth to illuminate our life. We must use prayer to seek out truth to reveal itself in our daily walk. Our souls are constantly crying out to our minds, for an actual, factual, definition and standard. What is truth and what is not? How do our minds know the difference between our opinion, perception, and illuminating knowledge? What happens when our soul’s understanding conflicts with our minds?
Our Lord, our Truth, we seek You to reveal the simple, and the not so simple truths in our lives. We ask that by reading Your Word, we are built up with wisdom in order to discern the truth that we should speak in this world.
The world is desperately trying to share its version what its truth is. But Lord You tell us to not copy the behavior and customs of this world. So what should we copy?
We should copy You! Since You are truth, you should be our truth. Your definition of truth should be the behavior in our daily life. Lord build us up in Your truth. Point out in the day when mans faults prevent Your truth from being abundantly visible.
We celebrate You O’Sovereign Lord! Help us seek the change we need! In Jesus name we pray, amen!
