Daily Reading: Joshua 16-18 GW; Proverbs 26 GW

Quick words have little meaning.

People will say anything to get what they want, whether true or not.  And they will tell lies about you if it suits their purposes.  When you are the center of someone else’s lies, it is highly annoying.  We all end up in this position at some point in our lives.  Someone accuses you of something you didn’t do.  Waiting for the truth to come to light can seem like torture.  One thing is sure; the truth always comes out.

My husband has a saying he uses often:

“A lie goes around the world three times before the truth comes out.”

He is right.  We believe lies quicker than we believe truth.  Satan’s greatest weapon is lying.  Not only do other people lie about us, they lie to us.  And we lie to ourselves, all the time.  No matter what the lie or who’s telling it, false words don’t find a place to rest.

Wait for the truth.

As long as you know the truth, that’s all that matters.  What other people think of you isn’t any of your business.  And quite frankly, it doesn’t matter.  The only one you have to care about what they think of you is God.  

If you’re following Jesus, applying His principles to your life, doing the best you can, you don’t have to worry about what other people are saying.  Truth comes through Jesus.  Journeying with Him means a lifetime of revelation.  Each day, as you seek Him, you’ll learn new facts about yourself and others.  Jesus sets you free from the lies.

Truth will set you free.  Lies don’t last.  False words never find rest.

Lord, thank You for Jesus.  He came so that we can find the truth.  Forgive us for wasting energy worrying about lies.  Help us persevere in the search for truth as we seek Jesus.  Remind us Your opinion is the one that matters, not those of people.  Help us follow You closely, applying Your ways to our lives.  Let people know us by our love, grace, and mercy.  Whoever we meet today, whatever the circumstance, help us lead with love.  Without You, we can do nothing.  With You, we can do everything.  Our lives are Yours, do with us what You will.  IJNIP. Amen
