August 15-21, 2021
We are caught in an avalanche of information but very little truth. Deception, manipulation, and intimidation are common tactics in the current struggle for the future.
Truth begins with God. When we are disobedient or rebellious, we reject the truth and the freedom which it brings.
Romans 1:18 (NIV®)
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness …
John 8:44-45 (NIV®)
44 “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!”
My choice is to be a disciple of Jesus Christ, to live for His honor. Father, I pray that I may know the truth. I choose Your freedom in my life, for my family, and in my home.
To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Lord, guide me in your truth. May my entire family be led by Your truth.
… guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
May I continually walk in Your truth – in my marriage, in my business, in all of my relationships – throughout my entire life.
… for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth.
Send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me …
Father, wherever I may have strayed from Your truth, teach me. My desire is to walk before You in truth. Wherever my heart is divided, teach me to fear Your name.
Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth;
give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.
I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws …
I choose to invest my life, my resources, my energy – all that I am, in the pursuit of Your truth. Father, bring wisdom, discipline, and understanding to my life.
Buy the truth and do not sell it; get wisdom, discipline and understanding.
Father, I choose to be led by Your Spirit of Truth. Help me to recognize His leading, to discern His voice, to understand His direction. My desire is to honor the Spirit of Truth in my life.
“… the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. “
“When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me.”
“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.”
