Topic: Truth – The Currency of Freedom
SCRIPTURE: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. – John 8:32
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is crookedness that sets the pace for calamity in life. Behind many struggles in life, crookedness is at work
Truth is the state of being sincere and honest.
Truth is key to gaining freedom in life. To avoid the truth is to end in a trap. There can be no freedom where there is dishonesty and unreality. It is crookedness that sets the pace for calamity in life.
Behind many struggles in life, crookedness is at work. For instance, as long as Jacob lived a life of falsehood, he kept sweating and struggling. But when he encountered God and the false identity was changed, his freedom came and his destiny opened up (Genesis 32:27-28).
Some time ago, a lady brought her credentials for prayers so she could get a job. As I was about to pray, I noticed that the age on the Curriculum Vitae conflicted with her looks. So, I asked her if that was her real age. She said, ‘No!’ She said she was told to reduce her age if she must get a job.
Imagine that, she wanted me to pray to the God of truth to bless a lie.
Beloved, you can never prevail in freedom until you wholeheartedly embrace truth.
Remember this: It is crookedness that sets the pace for calamity in life. Behind many struggles in life, crookedness is at work
1. Determine to be brutally sincere in all you do.
2. Peradventure you are using a false declaration of age or a false certificate, go and correct it by all means.
