Let God Be Our Truth

Let God Be Our Truth

Not at all! Let God be true, and every man a liar. As it is written: “So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge.”  Romans 3:4  NIV

 

We of late have everything turned around.  First, we think that we are right and that God should prove Himself to us.  There can be few mistakes more dangerous to make!  True wisdom only comes to us when we discover that we are not the center of our own universe.  God is always right!  He never needs our approbation for anything.  We begin to learn when we come to the conclusion that learning starts with Him.  In God all the journeys of soul gradually take shape as we let Him show us the Truth in ever fuller proportions.  Not everyone is willing to let God be God and the Author of all we know.  Are we?

Arrogant students don´t learn.  We must begin with a humble attitude.  We must know we need God if we are ever going to approach God.  We need to know we are not the experts so that we look to Jesus.  Shall we pray for new lessons of the Eternal?  Shall we ask to be shown how little we still know of our Maker?  Shall we ask our Guide to show us how to be humble and how to learn?  Shall we ask in a manner fitting for those who would come to Him?  Shall we ask God to be the Truth that we want to know?

 

Dear Lord,

Open our eyes to how great You are!  Help us see that You are true before all else!  Adjust our hearts and our minds to seek You and let You teach us!  Then show us how to see ourselves, our world and our relationship with You we pray!

Amen
