"Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long." Psalm 25:4-5 (NIV)
We are living in a time when men are defining truth by their own standards or agendas. They are attempting to rewrite history to force it to align with what they have decided the truth needs to be. Gone are the agreed upon happenings that have shaped lives and nations for centuries. The elite have their own ideas about what the past should be, so they are creating narratives and repeating them over and over until they become ingrained in the minds of others, particularly the young. By changing what is taught about what was they are attempting to create the future that best suits their own ideas.
Ugly words are being bandied about to shame people into giving up their own individual beliefs and accepting what they are told. "The truth," they say, "is what we tell you it is." It seems that the only acceptable viewpoint is the one of those in charge. It is incredibly sad that some are accepting this strategy and adopting these falsehoods into their own lives.
When my daughter was little she rarely received correction that was more than being talked to, or maybe spending some time in her room. There was one thing that she would receive harsher discipline for though, and that was lying. We wanted to teach her how important it was to tell the truth, even if she was afraid or thought she would get in trouble for doing so. We were teaching her about Jesus and that by being truthful He was honored because it was the right thing to do.
As I witness all that is taking place today, I see our enemy having a huge laugh at how gullible and easy to fool humans are. His one agenda is to rob Heaven of as many souls as he can. He loves it when we are deceived and especially when we know God's truth yet still choose to follow earthly ways.
My friends, as Christians we are to have discernment. We need to turn to our Father, tell Him what we are seeing and hearing and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us. It is vital that we be studying our Bibles so that the Truth is fresh in our hearts which will allow us to weigh what we are encountering against what God says. If it does not agree with His Word, then we are to reject it.
I will tell you that I am an "If God said it, I believe it and that settles it" kind of girl. There is no greater authority than the Almighty. My prayer of late is that He will reveal the evil, the deception and the lies in America and throughout the world so that everyone will know what the real truth is. As He does that, I pray that all who claim to be followers of Christ will stand up, speak up and declare Jesus to a world that has lost its way. God bless.
