DAY 13 – Truth!

29 May 2024


Jesus called the Holy Spirit, the “Spirit of Truth”, and the devil, “A liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44.) That makes things pretty simple. God only works with truth and the enemy only works with lies. We should want to build our lives on truth because no one believes a liar. The only problem is that the devil is pretty good at making lies SOUND like truth. Sometimes it’s really hard for us to tell.

A pretty big thing to remember is that the Bible says that the world around us is under the devil’s influence without even realising it (Ephesians 2:2.) That means that so much of what people do and how the world works is based on lies and not truth. To live in victory, we can’t afford to just go with what everyone else does or thinks, or the things we see on social media. We need the truth! We need the light switched on so we can see what’s really going on. Thank God, He has given us the Bible! His Word is the truth and the light that helps us see everything around us properly.

There’s people who work in banks who are trained to be able to recognise fake notes/bills. The thing is, they don’t get good at it by looking at all the fakes. They do it by looking at the real deal. They know the true ones so well that the fake ones become obvious and that’s a key for us too!

When we get to know God’s truth, the lies of the enemy start to stand out. We don’t get caught up believing something that feels or sounds okay but doesn’t line up with God’s Word. When we do this, we can walk in the victory of God’s truth!


John 8:32-33
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?”
John 14:7
If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him!”
1 John 5:19-21
We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life. Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.
