Lastly, when living by Kingdom truth (in essence, making Kingdom truth ‘our truth’), believers can walk in divine authority as they align themselves with God through this heavenly connection to Him.
Joyce Meyer (January-16-2023) Daily Devotional: In Spirit and Truth.
We communicate with God through our spirit. Jesus said in our verse for today that we must worship God in spirit and in truth. Being totally and completely truthful with God is one of the ways we can develop intimacy with Him. He knows everything about us anyway, so there is no reason to not be totally honest with Him. Tell Him how you feel, what you have done wrong, and what your desires are. Talk to God honestly as you would a good, trusted friend.
There are times when I know God wants me to do a thing and I tell Him honestly that I don't want to do it, but that I will do it in obedience to Him and because I love Him. Pretense and a close relationship with God will not work. A friend of mine once told me that although she knew she should give financially into the kingdom of God that truthfully, she did not want to. She was honest with God and told Him, "I will do it, but I don't really want to, so I am asking you to give me a desire to give." This woman eventually became very generous and did it with joy.
Only the truth will make us free (see John 8:32). God's Word is truth. He says what He means and means what He says. When we do something wrong, we must be totally honest with God about it. Call sin what it is. If you were greedy, call it greed. If you were jealous, call it jealousy. If you lied, call it a lie. Ask God for forgiveness and receive it by faith. When we worship God, we must do so from the spirit and do it with all truth, sincerity, and honesty. If we feel a friend is being untruthful, we often say, "Get real," meaning that we are asking them to stop pretending and just be honest. I think God wants the same thing from us.
Prayer of the Day: Lord, I know there’s no point in pretending with You. Please help me to be perfectly honest and sincere with You, so that I can move forward and be all You want me to be, amen.
Kenneth Copeland - Watch Sermon: Choose Truth. Is your heart set on God’s laws? Watch /Believer’s Voice of Victory/ as Kenneth Copeland urges you to choose Truth. Discover the endless benefits God has waiting for you, as you choose to walk in the way of His WORD!
How to Face Today — Lisa Bevere. Our world is buying the lie that truth is a river, ebbing and flowing with the passage of time. But the truth is not a river—it is a rock. And in a world lost in a sea of relativity, we must anchor our souls to the Truth or be drowned in the currents of popular opinion.
Rick Warren (December-06-2022) Daily Devotional: To Really Change, You Have to Know the Truth.
“Use the truth to make them holy. Your words are truth.” - John 17:17 (GW)
If you want to be transformed, you can’t be conformed.
The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 3:18-19, “Don’t fool yourself. Don’t think that you can be wise merely by being relevant . . . What the world calls smart, God calls stupid” (The Message).
If you want God to transform your life, then you have to choose not to conform to what society and culture say you should be or do. But you can’t make this life change on your own power.
Changing your life starts by changing the way you think, and that’s not something you can do by yourself. Ephesians 4:23 says, “Let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes” (NLT).
How does the Holy Spirit do that?
Real change requires learning the truth. You may already know these famous words of Jesus: “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32 NLT).
But did you know that the night before Jesus went to the cross, he prayed, “Use the truth to make them holy. Your words are truth” (John 17:17 GW).
God uses the truth of his Word to make you complete.
The secret to personal change is not willpower. It’s not about making resolutions.
The secret to personal change in the hard areas of your life is knowing and applying the truth—which you’ll find in God’s Word, the Bible.
If you spend time in the Word of God, soaking your mind with the truth, the Bible promises this: “Then we will no longer be like children, forever changing our minds about what we believe because someone has told us something different or . . . made the lie sound like the truth. Instead, we will lovingly follow the truth at all times . . . and so become more and more in every way like Christ who is the Head of his body, the Church” (Ephesians 4:14-16 TLB).
The more you get to know Jesus, the more truth you’ll know. And you’ll find yourself moving past the lies you’ve been believing. You’ll grow, change, and transform more into the likeness of Christ. And you’ll realize that the truth really does set you free.
