Truths are like diamonds. These diamonds really are a girl’s best friend. The more truths that you have in your heart then the richer your life will be. Just like diamonds, truths have many facets to them. You can live your entire life and still be able to learn more about His amazing truths. So realize when you hear something about a truth that it is one or more aspect of that truth and not the truth in its entirety. Often when people argue they are discussing different aspects of the same truth. Truths never change and they are the character of God expressed here on earth.
Proverbs 23:23 Buy truth, and do not sell it, Get wisdom and instruction and understanding.
The Lord says to buy truth and not to sell truth and to also get wisdom and understanding. It will cost you but the value far outweighs the price. They are a package deal. They all go together. If you have truth then you will receive wisdom and get even more understanding. For whoever has truth…then more truth, wisdom and understanding will be given to him.
Matthew 13:12 For whoever has, to him more shall be given, and he will have an abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him.
There is only one source of truth and that is the Lord Himself. He said that He is the truth so if you want to know the truth then you must know Him.
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
We are all deceived until we come to know the truth. Deception means that we have believed a lie in some way and we are not even aware that we are deceived, otherwise it would not be deception. When we are deceived then we actually believe the “lie” that is deceiving us is the truth.
II Thessalonians 2:10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.
The truth is the only thing that can set you free. It will set you free from the lies, from sin, from depression, from guilt, from bitterness and from anything else that you can think of that you might struggle with or be overcome.
John 8:32 You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.
Repentance leads to the knowledge of the truth. Repentance is turning away from the lies that you believed and acted on and turning to God.
II Timothy 2:25 if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth,
The Lord desires that you come into the knowledge of the truth.
I Timothy 2:4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
God’s Word is truth and it is what sets you apart from the world.
John 17:17 Sanctify them in truth, God’s word is truth.
The Lord wants you to build your life on His truths. Words of truth are the only correct answer that you will be able to give to the Lord as an explanation of why you did the things you did on earth, how you spent the money and time He gave you and an account of your obedience. You will give an account of your life in terms of stewardship and obedience.
