The Truth, The Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth

“If you listen to these commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom. – Deuteronomy 28:13

Do you struggle with sadness, depression, hurt, sorrow, pain, and low self-esteem? What is the truth? The truth is, God made you to love you. You are made in the image of God and are truly valuable. You are so valuable that God has created a place in heaven with your address on it. Do you know that you are an actual son or daughter of a King? King Jesus. That makes you a certified prince or a princess in the court of heaven!

How awesome that we are royalty in God’s court. Not only are we royalty, we are set apart and holy. On top of all that, God gives us His promises in His Word. He tells us that if we keep his commands and obey them, we will come out on top. No matter what your burden is today, you, my friend will come out on top. No matter what your sin is today, you will come out on top. No matter how terrible your past may be, you will come out on top. No matter what mistake you made today, you will come out on top. We need to etch this on our hearts.

As we fall prey to Satan’s “hunger games”, we need to use the strategy of prayer for guidance and positive self-talk using the sword of truth, “the Bible”. We need to tell ourselves when we find temptation burning inside us that the Bible tells me in Deuteronomy that “I will come out on top”. We don’t have to keep failing. We don’t have to keep giving in to temptation. We are not slaves, we have been set free. Live, bask, and swim in the freedom given to us by God.

Go this week, and when you find yourself broken, speak truth to yourself. Tell yourself what the truth is. The truth may be that you are angry at someone, but the truth is that you still love them so much. The truth is someone may have hurt you, but they may truly love you with all their heart. You may save yourselves some tears when you concentrate soly on what the truth really is. Learn to accept the truth and go on your way without demanding immediate justice and blame shifting.
