Always True



Always True

The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.” – Psalm 119:160

Have you ever gotten bad advice?

We’ve all gotten bad advice from time to time. You may have even gotten good advice, but it was only good for a certain amount of time. Investing in Pet’s.com was a great idea in 2000. A few years later, that was no longer a good idea.

Today, in the midst of a pandemic, the truth is hard to find. There’s political spin and agendas everywhere. Even if we try to ignore it and just look at the figures, we can’t trust the figures. Stories of deaths being reported as COVID-19 deaths which really had nothing to do with the disease as well as testing misreporting are rampant. It can leave us feeling lost and hopeless.

The Source of Truth
There is one place we know we can turn which will always be true, The Bible. God’s Word is truth. God not only says what is true, but the fact that God says it makes it true, and His Word will endure forever. It doesn’t expire. It is always true.

Granted, you can’t find coronavirus stats or advice in the Bible, but what the Bible tells us is even more important and more comforting. The Bible tells us that God loves us and is with us. Whether we’re in a pandemic or a hurricane or just normal life, God is with us and will not leave us.

As Psalm 23 tells us, we have nothing to fear even if we are walking through the valley of the shadow of death. Jesus has overcome death!! The truth of God’s love and salvation are true and will always be true. That truth defines our reality. That is how we can have peace no matter what the true stats are about COVID-19 or any other situation we may be in.

A Tree by a River
The more we read God’s Word, the more we understand the truth. The more we read God’s Word, the more we become grounded in that truth and know the peace and hope that God gives. As Psalm 1 tells us, delighting in God’s Word makes us like a tree planted by a river which will never go thirst and never wilt or fade.

but his delight is in the instruction of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.” – Psalm 1:2-3

Heavenly Father,

May I delight in Your Word every day. Strengthen me with Your Word and ground me in the truth of Your Word that I may know Your peace and hope and not be battered by the ever-changing “truths” of the world.

Amen.

In Christ’s Service,

Pastor Kurt
