In Psalm 86:11 the psalmist writes, “O Lord; I will walk in thy truth”. And each of us Christians wishes to walk in God’s truth.
One Sunday morning, Andy began his sermon by speaking two truths: God is, and I am not God. How difficult it often is to abandon a determined, self-assured point of view (my truth, our truth). How difficult it is to acknowledge that God’s truth IS and His truth will be revealed—not my point of view, not my truth, but God’s truth.
In times of uncertainty, when life, health, country (you name it) is turned upside down, when the old patterns no longer exist, when change is inevitable (as it always is), God IS! And with trust in Him, the way to “walk in” His “truth” will become evident. There will probably be struggle, suffering, or pain in moving from my, and our, truth to God’s truth. It may take time. But, to the seeker, God’s truth will show the way to walk. Pray for the awareness to follow.
