What's Truth?

Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

John 17:17 NKJV


    A Devotional for August 29th through September 4th


We all are looking for truth.  We watch the news, read various reports on the Internet, see stories on social media, information is everywhere.  One story says “do this” another says “don’t do this”.  It is all so confusing.  With how things are going in the world today, it makes your head spin.  How can you make an informed decision when all the information is contradictory and just plain a mess!  What you hear one day is not what you hear the next.  It’s crazy.  Who do you listen to?  Who is telling the truth?  There is One.

Ultimately it doesn’t matter what the news says, what the latest on social media is, or even what your neighbor tells you what they saw down the street.  What matters the most is where you turn for truth.  Don’t turn to social media.  Don’t listen to the news.  Don’t even listen to the person you think knows everything.  They don’t.  Open your Bible.  Read God’s word.  That is the only truth you need.

I find that the craziness of this world quiets when I open God’s word.  There is peace to be found within the pages and verses of the Bible.  There are prophesy’s, parables, psalms, so much.  It is all so true and even relevant for today!  So much of what you read in the Bible has happened, and the little bit that hasn’t will!  Much of what has happened actually happened after it was foretold! 

No matter what is going on around us, turn to the Word.  His truth will calm you.  His truth will give you comfort.  His truth is full of promises.  God’s word stands firm and does not change.  His truth speaks of Jesus and His promises are so great.  Hebrews 13:8 says “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” NKJV.  Jesus is the Word!

Turn only to God’s truth.  Turn to Jesus.  He will be the calm in any storm.
