“Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you.” (Psalm 25:5 NLT)
On any given day, there are lots of different messages that compete for our attention. Public opinion seeps in through our relatives, friends, and co-workers. Cultural norms influence our mannerisms and beliefs. The voices in our head fill us with self-doubt, fear, and delusions.
It’s difficult to recognize truth from deception. Lies are often just photoshopped versions of reality which makes them appealing. When falsehoods are reinforced by many sources, they tend to become imprinted in our minds. Truth is rare. Unless we are paying close attention, we miss it.
The Voice of Truth is from God who knows everything and everyone intimately. He liberates us from the cacophony of lies that enslave us. He leads us along pathways of truth, teaching us to distinguish between authenticity and falsehood. When we listen to Him, we are set free and consecrated. We can put our trust, hope, and confidence in the Lord who guides us with His voice of truth.
