Freedom in Truth
We live in a world today where it seems okay to be less than truthful. It may seem okay to you to
tell a small white lie, but it really is not okay. You can fool everyone else, but you cannot fool God. Our Father knows when
you and I are not truthful so it is more than impossible to fool him.
It is unreasonable to think we can be free from sin or bondages if we are not honest and sincere about everything.
As we examine our life it is up to us to ask ourselves…Are we being honest with ourselves, others or more so with the
Father? If the answer is no then it means that we are living in Bondage and we
are living a self deceptive life. If your goal is complete and total deliverance, and keeping it, you should concentrate on
knowing the truth of God's grace and avoiding all the lies. Jesus was serious when He said the truth sets you free. "So what
is the truth?" It took me years to understand this, it was not until I attended The Mattie Nottage School of Deliverance that I got a full grasp of what truth really is… See the
reason this concept of truth is so difficult for us to grasp is because our enemy, the devil, is a liar and is actively working
to keep the truth from us. The enemy has two powerful weapons; one of those weapons is fear, and the other weapon is deception.
Deception only damages us spiritually when we believe in the devil's lies. Fear is not so much of a problem when we know the
truth and refuse to believe these lies. People in bondage tend to be dishonest and insincere and it is the dishonesty that continue to holds us in bondage and
keep us away from the will of God for our lives .We must be truly willing to
obey Gods word, so that He will lead us away from any bondage
that holds us back in life, having to make the same mistakes over and over again
Ephesians 6:14-15 says “Stand therefore, having
your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation
of the gospel of peace.
We cannot worship God if our relationship with Him is built upon lies. We cannot ever be free if we
do not receive His Grace by faith and develop the kind of love for the Father that makes us want to please Him. God is pleased
when we are obedient and truthful with Him, with ourselves and with other persons. Jesus said in
John 8:31-32 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my
word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
The truth flows
from God and if he lives in us then automatically the truth will live in us. God gives His children the ability to understand
what is true and what is false. He speaks the truth to us through His Son Jesus, His Holy Spirit and His written Word (the
Bible). Everything the Father tells us is true. This is why It is so important to have a personal relationship with God and
get to know him better.
