Many people today don’t even bother to think rationally about what they believe and end up building their entire lives on beliefs that are simply not true. Whatever the news media, a celebrity or a group of friends say suddenly becomes ‘truth’ to them.
Believing what others say rather than exploring God’s Word for yourself will actually limit you and even keep you from doing what God created you to do. But, if you will contend for the truth, embrace it and build your life upon it, you will succeed in every endeavor.
If you want to stay on track with God’s Truth, you have to make communication with Him a priority in your daily schedule. I can’t urge you strongly enough to communicate with Him frequently through prayer, reading His Word, worship, and simply acknowledging His presence and guidance throughout the day.
When you know God, you know Truth. Living in His Truth will bring peace, freedom, and joy to your life.
Prayer Starter: God, I don’t want to be limited by my thoughts and beliefs about what is true. You are the only source of Truth. As I spend time communicating with You, show me and guide me into Your Truth.
