Truth and Wisdom!

The truth is the truth regardless of anyone's opinion that should try to contradict it. The question is what are you going to do about it? If you reject it you will stay in a state of bondage or deception. If you accept truth and apply truth to your life it will give you freedom and clarity.

"Did you know this? You can be lied to; you can believe something to be true, but yet it's a lie. And that lie can get down into your spirit, and it can keep you goofed up and seeing things from the wrong point of view. You can remain wrong until it get plucked out and the right thing gets put inside your spirit." ~Robert Tilton~

It is so important to know Truth intimately so that we don't believe a lie or so that we will reject a lie when we hear one or when it tries to impose itself on us. I am so convinced that so many of our recurring problems can be resolved if we just seek truth, know it, and apply it in our lives, hearts, and situations. When we believe a lie it causes us to be in a continued state of darkness, blindness, deception, bondage, etc. It is only by receiving and applying truth that we are made free and no longer in bondage, darkness, deception, etc... I am reminded of the song I can see clearly now that's what happens when we believe, accept, receive, and apply truth to our lives.

I love these two verses:

(John 8:32) And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

(Psalms 51:6) Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. (James 1:5)
