Words of Encouragement

Jesus is God's truth.  He came into this world so that you and I would not be put to shame for our inability to know what the will of the Father is.  Jesus came to be the truth that protects us from the shame of our sins. 

Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me through your law. I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws. I hold fast to your statutes, O LORD; do not let me be put to shame. - Psalm 119:29-31

God's Way. Your Truth keeps me Safe. Have you ever thought about what trust in God does for your life?  I mean how it really protects you?  As a believer we sometimes cannot understand how we can be obedient to God, yet seem to be standing all alone.  How can I be obedient to God and still find myself alone?

The word does not promise us that everyone will understand us or why we do what we must.  But it does promise us that when we are willing to keep the truth of God, it will keep us from the danger of believing things that are not true.  The word becomes a guard for our hearts.  The light of truth will dispel the darkness of lies and help us to make right choices.

When we make those right choices in God, he promises us that we will not be ashamed.  We will never be ashamed of choosing God's way.  Yes, we may suffer sometimes for doing what is right simply because others do not always understand or sometimes simply because the enemy of our soul wants to destroy us for doing what is right.  But even in our suffering, if we are willing to suffer for what is right, we are able to stand.

God's way is not always the easiest way because it calls for us to yield what we want to do.  However, one thing I do promise it is always the most rewarding.  To know within yourself that you are obedient to God's will is the greatest thing you can every experience.  To have God's Spirit speak to you and say, "I have tested your heart and I have found you faithful", is a great reward.

I pray for us today, that we follow God's way so that his truth can keep us from shame.  God help us to allow your truth to guide us daily so that we can live this life your way.
